Microsoft Canada Names Ingram Micro Cloud as Repeat Winner of Two Major Awards
Each year, Microsoft Canada announces the IMPACT Awards winners during Microsoft Inspire to celebrate technology innovation and recognize partners who demonstrate excellence and accomplish outstanding work in the Canadian partner community.
This year, Ingram Micro Cloud Canada was once again selected as the winner of two high-profile awards. This well-earned recognition reflects Ingram Micro's steadfast commitment to serving our partners with best-in-class technology solutions that accelerate their cloud journey and grow their business.
We are immensely proud of our Ingram Micro Cloud team. The initiatives we have invested in continue to differentiate us while meaningfully supporting our partners and growing the Microsoft partner community. Ingram Micro Cloud Canada has once again been recognized by Microsoft as the winner of the following IMPACT awards:
- WINNER: Indirect Cloud Solution Provider of the Year IMPACT Award
- WINNER: Modern Marketing IMPACT Award
- FINALIST: Tech Intensity IMPACT Award
The award names are meaningless without an understanding of what the awards represent and how they were earned through the commendable work of the Ingram Micro Canada team.
Indirect Cloud Solution Provider of the Year IMPACT Award Winner
Ingram Micro Cloud is proud to have received the Indirect Cloud Solution Provider of the Year IMPACT award for the second year in a row. Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve focused on supporting and sustaining our Canadian partners and the tens of thousands of customers they serve. Ingram Micro Cloud has also helped many of their Microsoft partners overcome substantial challenges to continue leading in the areas of transformation, acceleration and innovation.
We’ve been on a transformation journey based on a Five-Pillar Framework—people, portfolio, platform, programs and partner success—designed to provide partners with robust and repeatable solutions. Through this framework, partners can leverage financial solutions, technical guidance via the Center of Excellence, marketing materials through Go-to-Market Hub and marketplace automation initiatives to further service their customers.
Ingram Micro Cloud believes that for businesses to scale in the cloud, automation is an absolute requirement. That’s why we designed Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace to be an extremely powerful tool designed to help partners and their customers scale rapidly and easily.
Not only is our Cloud Marketplace fully automated, but it also provides full integration capabilities into any partner’s CRM, ERP, financial billing, professional services automation or existing e-commerce platform. Channel partners can easily white-label this cloud marketplace so that their end customers can purchase cloud subscriptions in a self-service fashion at any time.
Modern Marketing IMPACT Award Winner
Ingram Micro Cloud has been selected as the winner of the 2021 Modern Marketing IMPACT Award for the second year in a row. Our innovative Accelerate programs for Azure, Modern Work and Dynamics 365 cover the full partner journey from building a cloud practice to increasing the breadth of customers by going deeper with advanced solutions to drive more revenue.
As a premium source for partner resources, certifications and trainings, the Accelerate programs serve as an end-to-end framework for the development of a cloud practice built on Microsoft technologies.
Tech Intensity IMPACT Award Finalist
Ingram Micro Cloud's focus on driving innovation and enabling Canadian channel partners to lead with the most advanced Microsoft technology and security solutions contributed to our recognition as a finalist in this category. Our commitment to cybersecurity is demonstrated by best-in-class programs and initiatives that benefit partners while helping them protect their customers. In addition, partners benefit from robust training and enablement that build Microsoft competencies through the Flight Academy program.
Partners are able to leverage white-labeled professional services and the global Center of Excellence to handle any type of project. Our Microsoft Security Expert program goes even further by helping partners develop a security practice through one-on-one engagements, certification training and demand generation funding.
Plus, Ingram Micro Cloud is the only indirect provider in Canada with the "Azure Specialist for ISV" designation, which unlocks unique benefits and capabilities for growing the ISV ecosystem. No matter how partners choose to grow their Microsoft practice, we’re there to support them as they deliver world class-solutions to all Canadians.
Looking to the future
It’s been an excellent year for Ingram Micro Cloud Canada, and by extension, for all our hard-working Canadian partners. We share this year's honors with all our partners without whom our success would not be possible.
We’re excited about what we will accomplish together in the coming year by building an even stronger Canadian community of technology innovators who help their customers thrive. If you’re ready to start or scale your cloud business, we’d like to support you. Become a partner and start doing business on Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace today.
