Tech Data is helping Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) partners boost sales with a new Accelerate programme open to all HPE Silver, Business and Proximity (SBP) partners in the UK and Ireland.
Andrew Stuart, HPE Business Unit Director at Tech Data UK, said: “The Tech Data HPE Accelerate programme will take partners on a journey that will enhance their technical capabilities and move their sales into a higher gear. It’s a genuine opportunity for HPE partners to develop their business in the Super Six areas using a defined methodology that eliminates guesswork and minimises risk.”
HPE’s Super Six areas are based on major IT trends that it believes present the most opportunities for channel partners.
