Ingram Micro has announced a series of enhancements to its Cloud Marketplaces globally around Microsoft Azure and New Commerce Experience (NCE). The centerpiece of the roll-out provides real-time visibility into Microsoft Azure billing, plus new Microsoft NCE billing configurations to help simplify and speed subscription management.
“With these new and expanding Microsoft-centric capabilities and integrations, we are giving our channel partners what they asked for—solving for complexity by enabling them to work within the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace to land, manage, and expand their Microsoft business faster and easier,” said Victor Baez, senior vice president, Cloud, at Ingram Micro.
The new enhancements are designed to enable partners to more easily reconcile billing with accurate cost visibility, self-run periodic reports, and real-time billing projection. Forthcoming announcements are expected to make it easier for channel partners to schedule, co-term, and automate their subscription commitments.
Ingram Micro is a global Microsoft distribution partner, serving almost 25,000 partners in more than 30 countries.
The upgrade is expected to bring real-time, on-demand visibility to NCE promotions so channel partners can activate new business faster, streamline purchasing, and deliver a better experience to their teams and customers.
