Global wholesale technology distributor, Tech Data, is now offering a complete solution that integrates the new Microsoft 365 Business with its own Small Business Cloud Server offering which runs on Microsoft Azure. Tech Data is one of five launching partners to showcase Microsoft 365 Business at the 2017 Microsoft Inspire conference, taking place this week in Washington, D.C.
Microsoft 365 Business will bring together the management, configuration and deployment of services and devices from both Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security, enabling them to be managed through a single interface on StreamOne, Tech Data’s cloud aggregation, management and billing platform.
Tech Data will offer both Microsoft 365 Business and the combined Microsoft 365 Business/Small Business Cloud Server solution to Microsoft partners by the fall through StreamOne, “significantly simplifying the partner and user experience for small businesses.”
“With these announcements, Tech Data further develops its ability to support Microsoft partners in building their cloud practices,” said Tech Data Corporate Vice President, Strategy, Transformation, and Global Vendor Management Michael Urban, who is also responsible for the company’s global cloud strategy. “In particular, the combination of Microsoft 365 Business and our own Small Business Cloud Server on Microsoft Azure gives resellers a unique opportunity to provide SMB customers with a complete, scalable, and tailored platform to enable their digital transformation.”
“With Microsoft 365 Business, small businesses will be able to deploy key capabilities of Microsoft Cloud solutions quickly and effectively,” said Pascal Walschots, director, Office Partner Marketing, Microsoft. “We are pleased to see Tech Data building on our innovation in a way that will enable partners to offer a comprehensive solution founded on Microsoft technology, and thus provide a platform for the digitization of SMB customers.”
