Ingram Micro Goes All Facebook

Distribution giant Ingram Micro Inc. is inserting itself into the partner-to-partner trend that channel analysts say is so hot this year. Yesterday, at its fall VentureTech Network Invitational conference in Las Vegas, Ingram Micro announced two online networking resources for its partners.

The first is "The Zone," online business-to-business social networking sites that are supposed to facilitate partner-to-partner networking among Ingram Micro's solution provider communities. There will be a separate section for each of Ingram Micro's four communities: VentureTech Zone, SMB Alliance Zone, System ArchiTECHS Zone and GovEd Alliance Zone.

The second resource, called "M&A Forum," will target solution providers looking to acquire, be acquired or expand through capital investments. The M&A Forum is co-sponsored by Ingram Micro and the M&A Forum LLC. The forum is online immediately for Ingram Micro solution providers, and the zones will go live next month.
