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.
