Mike Potter, Solution Architect, UK at Tech Data, has been named an IBM Champion for 2020 in recognition of his support for IBM partners and his role in highlighting IBM technology, creating content and evangelising the company’s systems and solutions.
Potter is one of just 604 individuals worldwide to be chosen as an IBM Champion 2020 – one of 188 new or returning alumni, 399 renewals and 17 Lifetime Champions.
IBM Champions have exclusive access to IBM roadmaps, announcements and product development teams, which Potter says will help Tech Data customers get the most out of IBM software, solutions and services.
“To be named as an IBM Champion for 2020 recognises that Tech Data is committed to supporting IBM Partners at the highest level,” he said.
“It gives us access to IBM subject matter experts and other IBM Champions and partners. If one of our customers is struggling with a complex implementation of IBM Storage or Power systems, for example, I will be able to reach into the Champion community to see if anyone else has experienced similar challenges. By working together, we can find the right answers.”
