Ingram Micro, the global technology and supply chain services provider, today announced the signing of a distribution agreement with Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, to offer Ansible, Open Source, Open Shift, and Cloud solutions to enterprises across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) as they continue to operate remotely during this period. Covering all Gulf and Levant countries, in addition to Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia, the partnership guarantees the provision of products that will contribute toward Automation, IT Optimization, Digital Transformation, and Cloud-Native development within the financial, public, healthcare, and telecommunications sectors.
Channel partners and end customers benefit from the capabilities to build smarter with Red Hat solutions on a hybrid platform that offers portability, choice, and support. At the same time, they can sell differently – growing their business, building revenue streams, creating long-term relationships with a flexible subscription model, engaging with customers based on their needs, accessing new markets, and developing upsell opportunities. Service with confidence is also made possible by building trust and developing deeper relationships through professional and operational service offerings that empower customers, while reach expansion is achievable with Red Hat solutions as customers join an active, growing ecosystem of partners and benefit from access to new markets.
