Webinar: Do you know the 2017 Smart Parking trends?

Posted by Tech Data Europe on Jan 8, 2018 12:17:00 PM

 

The internet of things (IoT) is changing the world. In this webinar, recorded in November 2017, Tech Data talk about creating smart parking solutions for towns and cities. Imagine if you arrived in your car to a new town for the first time and your navigation system could tell you where the nearest available parking space was. It has powerful commercial applications for things like tourist buses also. With smart parking you can reduce congestion and therefore pollution.

When it comes to IoT, choosing the right IT training and certification courses needs expert guidance, careful planning and good judgement

Posted by Tech Data Europe on Oct 10, 2017 12:38:25 PM

By Stephen Ennis, Director, Tech Data Academy Europe.

Tech Data is one of the world's largest wholesale distributors of technology products, services and solutions. So when it comes to IoT and IT training, Stephen Ennis, Director, Tech Data Academy Europe, has some wise words of advice for IT providers looking to get into IoT.

 

Education is a must, especially for IT professionals

No matter what walk of life you’re in, training and education always matter. In the IT industry, most organisations responsible for operating data centre environments demand that IT professionals have the right IT certifications just to get through the front door. Rightly so, given the value of the data that resides there. Having the latest certifications is the best way for a serious IT professional to show employers and customers that they have the skills and competency to use all the products correctly and to their full capacity. Let’s face it, no one likes the idea of unplanned downtime because a configuration feature was overlooked or misunderstood. When it comes to IT training and certifications for the Internet of Things (IoT), IT providers and the IT professionals who work for them have to consider some additional factors unique to IoT.

How is the channel following through on its vision for 2016?

Posted by Tech Data Europe on Jul 27, 2016 8:06:06 AM

At the beginning of this year, we laid out our top predictions for technology trends in the channel for 2016. As we reach the half way point of the calendar year, it’s time to recap and see how things are shaping up so far:

Marcus Adae, Vice President Strategic Suppliers,
Avnet Technology Solutions EMEA

#1: Mobility for channel enablement

Mobility is moving more towards app-driven enablement, this much we know to be true. Mobile apps are becoming the norm for any kind of customer interaction, thanks to more personalised engagement through analytics and Internet of Things (IoT) data. However, what we’re seeing so far is that enterprise infrastructure is an even more important driver for the channel and partners in the mobility space.

#1: Mobility for channel enablement


Mobile interactions are continuing to evolve. There’s a massive shift in the mobile space with apps becoming the norm for any kind of customer interaction. Downloading apps is now a normal ask of customers. In 2016, this will open up new solution areas for channel partners as mobility moves more towards app-driven channel enablement where partners can communicate, receive and access information through easy-to-use apps.

Value-added distributors can help here by offering their expertise, such as mobile app development, to enhance the skills of their partners. In the vertical markets this is all the more essential as growth in those segments is driven by customer engagement which can be achieved through personalised experiences generated by the merging analytics, mobile apps and Internet of Things (IoT) data.
