Resellers benefit from Ingram Micro Showcase

23 Aug 12

Resellers took advantage of the Ingram Micro Showcase 2012 in Auckland this week, detailing new products and areas of growth across ANZ.


UK-based software company Acronis used the event to announce new ANZ general manager Andy Purvis, who the company hopes will act as a presence in the country.

"The appointment shows our desire to continue our push into New Zealand,” says Simon Bills, Acronis ANZ national distribution manager.

"We are using this event to promote the Acronis brand across the country and attract as many resellers as possible, as we hope to gain a cross section of big and small players within the industry.

"We hope Andy’s appointment will take us to the next level of growth across this region, and while he will be Sydney based we expect him to have a strong presence in New Zealand.”


Data loss protector APC revealed solutions for small to medium data centres, offering complete modular, scalable data centre solution which the company says is small enough to be practical yet flexible enough to expand.

“We offer a range of equipment depending on each company’s needs,” says Simon Smith, APC country manager.

“People want to pay less for efficiency nowadays while still having more choice and flexibility.”


Fresh from a 35% rise in PC sales, software maker Lenovo introduced the world’s thinnest and lightest 14” ultrabook.

Lenovo says the ThinkPad X1 Carbon weighs only 3lbs, is 18mm thin and offers HD+ display with a wide viewing angle, high resolution and high brightness.


CISCO’s Technical Solutions Architect Jeff Wang offered a presentation on ‘Delivering the power of In-Person’, detailing how best to collaborate and communicate face to face.

Wang focused on improving productivity and enhance business agility during the talk, noting that Cisco Telepresence delivers lifelike video to all users and environments in any organisation.

Ciscos says the enterprise grade technology is now available to small and medium sized businesses.


Hosts Ingram Micro briefed guests on how best to integrate and deploy iOS and iPad into their environments, highlighting the considerations a company should address when thinking about a mobile strategy.

The security experts says the integration of security and Mobile Device Management APIs with third-party solutions to wirelessly configure and update settings suggests iPads can work in a business environment, while also monitoring compliance with corporate policies, and even wiping or locking devices if required.
