• Tech Data announces European agreement with Advantech

        • Tech Data has announced a pan-European agreement with Advantech, a global provider of Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions. The Advantech product portfolio covers a range of technologies from hardware and software to specific industry solutions for intelligent industrial automation and control.
           
          Tech Data resellers and system integrators across Europe can now access Advantech’s range of products, which enable business outcomes for edge-to-enterprise IoT projects in industrial spaces, extreme environments with harsh conditions, transportation or outdoor applications.
           
          Victor Paradell, Vice President, IoT & Analytics Solutions, Europe, at Tech Data said, “success in IoT requires strong partnerships and collaboration. With this agreement, we will help our channel partners to deliver a complete solution, including the required IT and OT elements for the industrial sector. Industry 4.0 is driving growth in the IoT sector and Tech Data is now able to provide reliable end-to-end industrial solutions to help our partners resolve end-customer needs and deliver transformative business outcomes.”

          Advantech is the latest addition to Tech Data’s IoT Solutions partner ecosystem, bringing special focus on data acquisition sensor capabilities, IoT networking infrastructure and data interfaces supporting a variety of environments. With this partnership, Tech Data reinforces its commitment to closing the gap between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) in the IoT market and driving adoption of industrial IoT through the channel.
            
          The partnership between Advantech and Tech Data also allows the creation of end-to-end solutions that open up new markets to Tech Data customers, such as predictive and prescriptive maintenance, remote field support and asset condition monitoring across Europe.
           
          Jash Bansidhar, Sector Head of Industrial IoT Europe at Advantech added, “Advantech has selected Tech Data to accelerate its go-to-market for Industry 4.0 and Smart City systems integrators. The partnership enables both companies to offer enhanced customer value by rolling-out international solution ready platforms (hardware and software) in industrial markets. Our cooperation enables us to offer one-stop-shop IIoT products and solutions that bridge the gap between OT and IT in factories and provide best-in-class customer service.”
