If you want to remain relevant with your customers, multi-cloud is the direction to go and one provider you want to ensure is positioned well your portfolio is AWS. AWS provides a grand scale of cloud services and flexibility including IaaS, computer and storage, analytics, machine learning, IoT, services and more. While concerns float around the profitability of resell, today, numerous Tech Data partners capture desirable margins through the resell on top of the AWS services they deliver.

By partnering with Tech Data, not only can you reap the benefits of partnership with a distributor, such as the ability to bridge together multi-cloud solutions more seamlessly (and feel a greater sense of control and ownership over your relationship with your end customers), but specific to AWS, you can incrementally grow your practice and AWS capabilities by leveraging Tech Data in areas such as assessment, migration, optimization, and managed services, to fill in gaps as you work on developing your own in-house capabilities.

We can also help you demystify the path to growth with top cloud providers, and navigate more rapidly through their partner programs, so you can effectively expand your skill set and gain greater ROI.

As a Tech Data Partner Enablement Consultant, I am here to help guide you through your cloud growth journey with AWS by providing a clear path and programmatic approach. Our process provides you with an inside track to achieving required certifications, identifying and registering appropriate customer references, and funded programs to help drive AWS monthly recurring revenue (MRR), all critical steps to moving from registered to standard and beyond.

One of the greatest joys of my role is doing just this — helping our partners like you create a plan of action, establish milestones, and monitor your progress throughout the entire upgrade process.
