• Tech Data calls on Microsoft partners to join Azure Velocity Acceleration programme

        • Tech Data Corporation is looking for more Microsoft Partners to join its Azure Velocity Partner Acceleration Programme, after putting more than 50 resellers through the scheme over the past year. The company now wants to bring a similar number on board to benefit from the programme over the next six months.
           
          Velocity is designed to deliver the best enablement to Microsoft Partners who have shown the desire and capacity for accelerated growth on the Azure cloud platform. The programme would then propel partners towards Silver Competency and then on to successful and profitable customer acquisition. Training and tools are provided, allowing partners to up-skill and attain Microsoft Certified Competencies, with investment totaling over £20,000 per partner.
           
          The programme advances partner sales and technical people through the relevant tracks and aims to have them ready to go when the marketing elements kick-in. This way they can start generating revenue and move towards attainment of their Microsoft Cloud Competency straight away. Each partner is supported by named Business Development Executives, Solutions Architects, and Cloud Solutions Specialists.
            
          Dwayne Earl, Software Business Unit Manager for Tech Data said, “Velocity is a real differentiator and helps partners to drive significant revenues. To date, we’ve put more than 70 individuals from around 50 resellers through a five-day Azure technical training courses and we’ve seen their revenues with Azure and with CSP [the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider programme] grow significantly over the past six months. It’s been a great success and it’s now a very well tried and tested programme, so we are very keen to sign up more partners and get them started on their cloud journey.”
           
          All Azure business is managed through the Microsoft CSP programme, for which Tech Data’s dedicated team of ten is probably the best-trained expert and experienced in the UK or Europe. Tech Data is one of only a small handful of Microsoft Gold Platform Partners for CSP in the UK.
