Tech Data Partners with Software AG to Connect and Integrate Disparate Data and Business Solutions
Partners in United States and Canada Can Now Develop the Next Generation of Application Systems to Build Their Digital Futures
Tech Data announced it has partnered with Software AG, a leading enterprise software provider in the areas of hybrid and B2B integration, Internet of Things (IoT), analytics, process and services. Software AG offerings will enable Tech Data partners to drive innovation with their customers by helping them connect and integrate virtually everything in their businesses – from applications and devices to data and clouds.
“Digital transformation is changing enterprise IT landscapes from application silos to modern software platform-driven IT architectures, which deliver the openness, speed and agility needed to enable a digital real-time enterprise,” said Colin Blair, vice president, Analytics and IoT Solutions, Americas, Tech Data. “Software AG’s offerings can help our partners expand into new customer segments by leveraging our ecosystem technologies, which are optimized to work with cloud technologies like with Microsoft Azure.”
With mass adoption of cloud technologies underway, Gartner, Inc. has reported that 40 percent of all IT budgets worldwide include shadow IT, in which IT projects are managed outside of, and without the knowledge of, the IT department. This disjointed approach to technology adoption cultivates disparate and disconnected data, reducing a business’s ability to innovate quickly. Software AG’s technology platform helps to address this fragmentation by integrating data and eliminating the barriers between IT, Line of Business, Operations Technology (OT) stakeholders and business partners. With this approach, enterprises can extract more meaning and value from their data and use it to build actionable strategies for growth.
“We are thrilled to have Tech Data partners leverage our technology to help customers break down internal barriers while harnessing the cloud more effectively,” said Scott Little, senior vice president, Sales, Americas, Software AG. “Our modular platform will enable customers to use technology as a bridge to better leverage all of the data at their disposal to drive greater and longer-lasting competitive advantage.”
