Ingram Micro Inc. announced today it is the first global AWS Distributor to achieve the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Migration Competency. This designation recognizes that Ingram Micro has demonstrated deep and wide technical knowledge and professional services expertise in moving businesses to AWS through all phases of complex migration projects, including discovery, planning, migration, and operations.
“Achieving the AWS Migration Competency further differentiates Ingram Micro as an AWS Partner, giving our channel partners access to professional services that can help them accelerate the customer cloud adoption journey by providing technical personnel, tools, education, and technical support to partners and their customers,” says Duncan Robinson, vice president, growth partnerships, cloud, Ingram Micro.
“Delivered through Ingram Micro’s Center of Excellence, the expanded portfolio of migration services brings in-depth knowledge, technical skill, and business value to Ingram Micro’s channel partners looking to expand their AWS capabilities to meet the needs of the global economy and grow more profitably. As more and more businesses look to digitally optimize, demand for migration services and the MSPs who can deliver them will follow.”
According to International Data Corporation (IDC)1, worldwide revenue for enterprise applications is projected to grow from $279.6 billion in 2022 to $385.2 billion in 2026 with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.0 percent. Adding to the opportunity for channel partners globally, nearly all growth in enterprise application spending is projected by IDC to come from investments in public cloud, which is expected to represent nearly two-thirds of all enterprise application revenue by 2026.
“Embracing digital transformation and securely moving businesses to a managed cloud or hybrid cloud infrastructure have become critical to the growth strategies of both channel partners and their customers,” notes Victor Baez, senior vice president, Cloud, Ingram Micro. “Migration services are a heavy lift in time, talent, and skill for many of our channel partners and another area where Ingram Micro continues to make investments to fill the gaps and help our partners thrive as trusted advisors.”
By achieving AWS Migration Competency status, Ingram Micro now delivers even greater benefits for channel partners, including reducing the time to value and expanding access to secure cloud services for them and their customers. Ingram Micro’s long-standing and successful relationship with AWS includes earning several AWS Competency and AWS Service Delivery designations in recent years including the AWS Cloud Management Tools (CMT) Competency, the AWS DevOps Consulting Competency, and the AWS Config Service Delivery designation.
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology AWS Partner Network (APN) members with deep industry experience and expertise.
