Tech Data has announced a new European agreement with Digitate, an autonomous enterprise software provider. The agreement gives Tech Data partners across Europe the opportunity to offer the full range of Digitate solutions, built on the company’s ignio software platform. This includes its flagship artificial intelligence for IT operations (AIOps) product.
Gartner predicts that by 2023, 40 per cent of infrastructure and operations teams in large enterprises will use AI-augmented automation, with machine learning solutions a preferred and pragmatic option for many businesses. Tech Data has built a comprehensive data analytics portfolio to help partners address this opportunity and offers specialist in-country support through its data and IoT solutions experts, Solutions Factory methodology and Practice Builder programs.
Digitate’s ignio applies artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to provide IT operations teams with insights that enable prediction, prevention and remediation of issues and risks. The software platform can identify and self-heal IT incidents, failures, or faults, without human intervention at machine speed.
Craig Smith, Vice President, IOT and analytics, Europe, Tech Data said, “Tech Data is strategically focused on bringing a highly relevant portfolio of data analytics and IoT vendors to the market while also guiding and supporting our partners in developing solutions and business models that drive differentiated outcomes for their customers. Digitate fits this model perfectly. Its ignio solution gives infrastructure and operations teams visibility and control over fragmented IT estates with a cutting-edge, user-friendly tool that will help our partners to position themselves at the forefront of digital transformation.”
Akhilesh Tripathi, CEO, Digitate added, “ignio has become the preferred software for progressive organisations. Its unmatched speed-to-value and its strong growth is drawing a rich ecosystem of channel and technology partners, like Tech Data. We’re excited to be entering into this relationship with Tech Data and see huge potential for partners with the ignio platform. Tech Data has a great track record of recruiting and enabling partners and helping them to drive new business development. We’ll be working with their team to support them with every aspect of that activity.”
