Channel event planned for next week in London involving major players

Avnet has taken the wraps off a new UK partner enablement programme as part of its converged infrastructure practice.

The practice supports channel partners delivering pre-architected and vendor validated IT infrastructure solutions, and includes regular Avnet-hosted channel briefings and a centre of excellence, The Resource, located in Avnet’s recently upgraded UK demonstration venue.

London CityThe Resource is designed to provide technical and business expertise to support partners in the latest IT trends, including converged and hyper-converged infrastructures.

Miriam Murphy, senior vice president, Avnet Technology Solutions, North region, EMEA, said: “The IT landscape is changing rapidly with the continuous innovation of new technologies. We have designed our next channel briefing to bring clarity to converged infrastructure and to address how it is evolving and the value it can bring to our business partners and their customers.”

The next channel briefing is being held at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), London, on Thursday 26 May, and involves the following vendors: Cisco, Commvault, F5, HDS, HPE, IBM, NetApp, Nimble, Veeam and VMware.

The programme will provide strategic insight into the converged and hyper-converged markets with presentations by senior executives from the leading vendors and Avnet. They will discuss how they are adapting to the impact of hyper-converged infrastructure and what this means for them, the converged market and the UK channel in general.
