Tech Data introduces new global brand
American broadliner Tech Data has introduced its new brand identity, highlighting the company's expanded reach and capabilities as a global leader in technology distribution and services. Following the company's transformational acquisition of Avnet's Technology Solutions business earlier this year, Tech Data has established a single global brand that capitalizes on the full reach, efficiency, and technical expertise of its new combined organization. Tech Data will now operate as a unified brand in all of its markets throughout the world, enabling channel partners to benefit from its unmatched end-to-end portfolio of products, solutions, and services. "As we evolve our business in anticipation of what's next, the Tech Data brand has evolved as well. Today we are proud to introduce the new Tech Data and the next chapter in the history of our company", said Bob Dutkowsky, chairman and CEO of Tech Data. "Our new global brand is centered on the proven strength of the Tech Data name and provides a unified promise of integrity, expertise and excellence. Tech Data serves as a beacon in the IT channel—central to our customers' and vendors' success. Our teams have highly specialized skills in next-generation technologies, extensive software and services capabilities, and the best logistics engine in the industry, all backed by a global IT system that can do anything from process the sale of a laptop to configure the most complex multi-vendor solution. Tech Data has become a company that delivers business outcomes—not just products—and we're excited for the future of our company as we help connect the world with the power of technology."
To enable a specialized approach while maintaining the exceptional service levels that partners expect from Tech Data, the company has grouped its offerings into two primary solutions portfolios under the Tech Data brand:
While Tech Data's logo will not change, the company's color palette and graphic devices have been updated to incorporate both its foundation and its new dimensions, blending the unique capabilities of Tech Data and Technology Solutions into a modern, global brand. Tech Data has also introduced new purpose, vision, and mission statements.
Broadliner Tech Data has announced that its Technology Solutions business, formerly a division of Avnet and now part of Tech Data, has signed a new distribution agreement with Dell EMC in Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Turkey. Through the agreement, Tech Data will provide channel partners in Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Turkey with access to solutions across the complete enterprise Dell EMC portfolio, including servers, storage, cloud computing solutions and converged infrastructure technologies, to meet the needs of its small, midsized and enterprise customers. Jason Boxall, vice president, Strategic Vendors and International Channels, EMEA at Tech Data, said: "we are pleased to extend our agreement with Dell EMC to four additional countries and look forward to helping more partners meet their needs with the extensive and innovative portfolio that Dell EMC offers. Our Dell EMC partners are uniquely positioned to solve their customers’ business challenges thanks to new technologies that are redefining the future.

Tech Data is a leader in the data centre area and we can benefit from its large-scale partner network and expertise to further drive business solutions for customers in those countries", commented Michael Collins, senior vice president, Channel EMEA, Dell EMC.

Broadliner Tech Data has announced that NEXIONA's innovative range of IoT software is now available on the Tech Data Cloud Solutions Store, powered by StreamOne, Tech Data's platform for end-to-end provisioning and billing of software and cloud services. Tech Data customers in Europe can now manage the complete sales cycle for NEXIONA's solutions using this digital platform, from initial purchase to license renewal, through local cloud stores in Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
"IoT is one of the top areas of focus for many of our partners' customers", said Colin Blair, vice president, Data Analytics and Internet of Things (IoT) at Tech Data. "The addition of NEXIONA to our Tech Data Cloud Solutions portfolio provides our partners with the broad set of tools they need to be successful in meeting the diverse needs of their customers."
NEXIONA is part of Tech Data's growing SmartForce IoT offering, which comprises a portfolio of validated end-to-end solutions for systems integrators, value-added resellers and service providers, providing them with the tools they need to deliver solutions and products quickly to the emerging IoT market. NEXIONA's MIIMETIQ software enables system integrators and service providers to rapidly and easily design, prototype, and commercialize their own industrial IoT applications by simplifying secure connection to physical devices and the management of all sensor data.
"To unlock the value of IoT, system integrators and solution providers need a way to quickly design, prototype, and turn new ideas into value-driving IoT applications", said Victor Paradell, vice president, Tech Data Smart IoT & Analytics, Europe. "Delivering NEXIONA's MIIMETIQ high-productivity application enablement platform through Tech Data's StreamOne gives our partners an easy, fast and cost-effective way to start building their own IoT platforms—with full control over their data—and migrating to new, more profitable service delivery models."
NEXIONA's platform supports more than 60 machine-to-machine (M2M) and IoT protocols and communication technologies, and is built on a flexible service-oriented architecture (SOA) that fully integrates with IBM Watson IoT and Microsoft Azure IoT Hub cloud services and is available from Tech Data as an integrated solution with the Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series for rapid IoT framework development.
Broadliner Tech Data has unveiled a European distribution agreement with Worldsensing, a recognised specialist in wireless technology and smart software solutions. Through the agreement, Tech Data will offer FastPrk, an Internet of Things (IoT)-based smart parking management system through its Smart IoT Solutions business practice, which offers validated, end-to-end solutions for systems integrators and service providers, enabling them to identify and drive new revenue opportunities. FastPrk is an intelligent parking management system that allows cities and operators to manage parking resources more efficiently and parking operators to generate additional revenue. The wireless system uses smart sensors installed in parking spaces, enabling parking operators to direct drivers to areas with vacancies via electronic panels and mobile applications. Fastprk also enables cities and operators to gain control over parking utilization, while implementing better strategies on monetization of parking in line with demand.
"As our cities continue to grow rapidly, there is an increasing need to invest in smart technology to become more efficient, better connected and more environmentally friendly. For example, helping drivers find parking spots quickly reduces traffic and lowers carbon dioxide emissions with less fuel wasted", said Victor Paradell, vice president, Tech Data Smart IoT & Analytics, EMEA. "Our agreement with a global IoT pioneer in smart cities and wireless infrastructure sensor networks like Worldsensing adds a game-changing component to our portfolio, allowing our partners provide connected operational intelligence solutions to their clients."
Ignasi Vilajosana, CEO and co-founder of Worldsensing, said: "Welcoming Tech Data as a strategic partner is a great step forward for us and a huge milestone for our commercial expansion. We are looking forward to working closely with the Tech Data team and enriching our sales process with their experience and know-how."
Worldsensing product should be available through Tech Data's IoT BUs in Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
Azlan, Tech Data Europe's infrastructure VAD division, has unveiled a pan-EMEA distribution agreement with Secret Double Octopus, a pioneer of keyless multi-shield authentication technology. Secret Double Octopus has developed a solution for the market that applies keyless authentication and identity protection for cloud, mobile, and IoT solutions. Secret Double Octopus' app helps companies to scale their network security and shift away from key-based authenticators, to a more secure keyless solution. With one tap, the authenticator app initiates a multi-shield authentication process for users in order to verify or reject the login attempt, payment or transaction.
David Harvey, director Security and Enterprise Networking Solutions at Azlan, says: "by bringing Secret Double Octopus into our vendor portfolio, Azlan enriches its security offering with an innovative solution that addresses customers' authentication challenges, is scalable and easy to deploy, and helps provide cost-effective security."
"For years, organizations have sought to educate employees about the importance of secure passwords and resisting phishing attacks, both of which have failed. It is time to replace the password", said Raz Rafaeli, CEO of Secret Double Octopus. "We are excited to expand our global footprint through this partnership with Azlan. We can offer the European market a strong authentication solution that will eliminate the need for passwords - a security vulnerability that accounts for two-thirds of data breaches."
Double Octopus products are available in the region through Azlan offices in Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
