Tech Data partners stand challenged to make bold decisions and take advantage of the unprecedented strength of the market.

The theme of Tech Data’s Partner Summit 2018, held last week in Scottsdale, Arizona, was “Transformation Awaits.” Rich Hume, Tech Data‘s CEO, told attendees his company is focused on hybrid cloud, with “compelling” relationships with Amazon, Microsoft and IBM Cloud, as well as analytics and IoT.

The company’s strategy is investing in next-generation technologies, strengthening its end-to-end portfolio of products, solutions and services, transforming digitally and optimizing its global footprint.

“Everything has to drive a better result for our customers,” he said.

During the conference, Tech Data unveiled a hybrid-cloud strategy for partners to use in discussions with customers about cloud sales. The key is capturing end-to-end value across the digital organization, which means enabling transformation on devices, at the network edge, and in public and private clouds, said Stacy Nethercoat, Tech Data’s vice president of cloud solutions for the Americas.
