The Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace is an ecosystem that brings together buyers and sellers to conduct business on a single platform.

Rather than building out a comprehensive and multi-layered infrastructure, resellers can leverage the pre-built, flexible platform from Ingram Micro to purchase, provision, manage and invoice technology solutions for their end-user customers.

With this launch, the following cloud solutions have been added to the Cloud Marketplace including Microsoft Office 365 through the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program and a suite of migration services from SkyKick which allows service providers to move their customers' mail and related data to Office 365 in an easy way for increased sales velocity and reduced project risk.

A number of additional cloud offerings including Dropbox for Business and BitTitan are expected to be added soon.

The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider program empowers solution providers to fully own the end-customer relationship.

This enables them to manage the end-to-end subscription lifecycle which helps ensure greater customer satisfaction, higher renewal margins and topline cloud revenue.
