• Tech Data offers Google Android essentials

        • Tech Data has extended its partnership with Google to include the new Android Essentials mobile device management (MDM) service, which makes deploying and managing devices easier and more cost-effective for organisations of all sizes.
           
          To simplify ordering and management, Tech Data has set-up the Android Essentials Zero-Touch Enrolment area on InTouch (it’s online procurement and order management platform). This is already up and running, making it easy to add, register and enable devices. Tech Data already has a partnership with Google on Chromebooks and the Pixel range, and this extends and adds further strength to that partnership.
           
          Simon Bennett, Director, Enterprise Software and Cloud, Tech Data, UK and Ireland said, “the explosion in the use of mobile devices has led to mobile device management becoming a big challenge for organisations. Up to this point, they have been faced with making a choice between highly functional ‘full fat’ enterprise-focused solutions that are quite expensive to deploy, or basically, having no MDM.
           
          “While over 50 per cent of the mobile devices deployed for business use in Western Europe are Android-based, according to IDC, most businesses do not have an MDM solution in place. That’s the gap that Google’s Android Essentials is aiming to fill – and it is now available through Tech Data.”

          Tech Data is able to combine the skills and capabilities that it has within its specialist business units to meet all the needs of reseller partners, from consultancy and design through to implementation, service, and support. With Android Essentials, teams from the Enterprise Software and Cloud business unit are working in close collaboration with the Tech Data Security Practice to support partners.
           
          In addition, Tech Data is making it easy for partners to learn about the solution and the opportunity through training modules covering Android Essentials Zero-Touch Enrolment. These will be available to exist reseller partners free of charge on Tech Data’s Channel Academy training platform. 
           
          Android Essentials has been created, from the ground up, to provide an MDM solution that can be deployed easily on any Android device. Android Essentials has all the key functionality that any organisation will need. With more than half of all mobile systems in use within businesses today running Android (including smartphones and tablets), it presents a massive opportunity, both for B2B resellers and MSPs.
