Westcon-Comstor to provide view of digital distribution tools that enable cloud service delivery at MyBroadband Conference

Value-added distributor, Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa, will participate in the 2019 MyBroadband Cloud Conference set to be held on June 6, 2019 at Gallagher Estate. The company will focus on the value of strategic partnerships with leading cloud solution providers, and how a clear digital distribution strategy and investment in tools and applications assist resellers to build end-to-end cloud solutions.

"With cloud driving innovation, it is important for resellers to choose the right cloud-based channel partnerships to launch their own set of services. Whether that be in DevOps, cloud service provision, or customer service delivery," said Saartjie Wait, Marketing and Digital Experience Director at Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa. "Cloud is evolving the way businesses operate, but it also gives smaller companies access to enterprise grade tools and security.

"The way technology is consumed, distributed and procured is changing, we have developed value-based tools, services and programmes that are geared around assisting resellers to build cloud go-to-market strategies and adapt to the new digital world,'' she added.

Westcon-Comstor's digital distribution platforms, such as BlueSky and PartnerView, deliver the tools, vendor integration and automation that resellers need to grow and thrive in a competitive landscape. When partnering with Westcon-Comstor, resellers are supported by systems that analyse a customer's cloud requirements and use proven platforms to scope business needs against usage. Partners can check stock, generate quotes and process an order, as well as monitor and track licensing, costs and consumption throughout the process.

"We have partnered with leading software, hardware, security, collaboration and cloud vendors allowing us to offer unique solutions around their offerings. Our Digital Distribution tools open a new world for resellers, where they can be proactive and agile when assisting customers with multi-cloud decisions, alerting them to discrepancies and identifying new opportunities," added Wait.
