Tech Data Cloud Featured in CRN 2016 Cloud Partner Program Guide

CLEARWATER, Fla., Sept. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized the company’s Tech Data Cloud business in its 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide, an annual list of leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs that enable and accelerate the growth of solution providers' cloud initiatives.

“We are proud to be selected to the CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide for the third straight year,” said Stacy Nethercoat, vice president, Tech Data Cloud, Americas at Tech Data. “Tech Data Cloud continues to be a strategic partner for navigating the cloud and developing a sustainable business model for all of our partners' cloud offerings. This recognition reinforces our commitment to our partners’ growth and is a testament to the dedication of our team of cloud experts.”

In July, Tech Data announced enhancements to StreamOne, the company's platform that powers its award-winning Cloud Solutions Store. Through the enhancements, solution providers can now launch a private label cloud store or integrate Tech Data Cloud's services into an existing e-commerce environment. Tech Data Cloud has also developed APIs to validate Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) identification and existing Cloud Service Provider (CSP) tenants, improving processes to migrate customers from Microsoft's Advisor and Open programs to Microsoft CSPs.

The CRN 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide serves as a valuable resource for solution providers navigating the growing cloud marketplace, helping them to identify technology suppliers that offer innovative cloud solutions and partner programs. To qualify for participation in the Cloud Partner Program Guide, technology vendors must offer a unique set of partner program benefits for solution providers and deliver cloud infrastructure or applications.

“For channel partners, active support of cloud-based solutions is more critical than ever,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2016 Cloud Computing Partner Program Guide recognizes vendors that provide excellent resources, training and financial incentives for cloud, doing their best to help partners make the most of this foundational practice area. We congratulate all the innovative, forward-looking companies on the 2016 list and invite the solution provider community to take full advantage of this terrific resource.”
