Tech Data Expands Open Source Partner Program

,----[ Quote ]
| Open Tech and the Open Source Channel Alliance 
| both hold promise on multiple fronts. For 
| Linux solutions providers, the two distributor 
| efforts could open the door to application 
| opportunities. And for closed source 
| application specialists, Open Tech and the 
| OSCA provide disruptive and frequently lower-
| cost alternatives upon which to build 
| solutions.

COBOL-IT chooses COBOL-WORKS GmbH as distributor for the German market

,----[ Quote ]
| COBOL has always been a language for mission-
| critical business applications. That has been 
| true since the early days of computing and it 
| is still a valid statement. But nowadays there 
| are new environments that can host the 
| applications, and with the use of COBOL-IT, 
| mission-critical business applications can be 
| brought into the world of Open Source.



Tech Dataâs Open Source Strategy: A Closer Look

,----[ Quote ]
| It has been roughly a month since Tech Data
| launched Open Tech â an open source channel
| partner initiative. Why is the big distributor
| interested in the open source market? And how
| is Open Tech performing so far? I caught up
| with Tech Data VP Stacy Nethercoat for
| answers.


Tech Data gets busy with SMBs, open source and healthcare

,----[ Quote ]
| While Tech Data carries Red Hat and Novell â
| the two big guys in this space that are
| particularly strong in the data centre â the
| distie hasn't traditionally carried ISV
| applications to round out a complete solution.
| To add to the mix, there are also tier-one
| players that offer open-source SKUs, such as
| Microsoft, Oracle and Symantec. And since
| there's a growing demand for open source, the
| distie is attempting to step it up a notch.


Open Source Distribution: Ready to Roll?

,----[ Quote ]
| Tech Data, as The VAR Guy expected, is the
| latest distributor to launch an open source
| channel initiative. Tech Dataâs effort
| (called Open Tech) follows a Synnex-Red Hat
| initiative called the Open Source Channel
| Alliance. But are distributors really ready
| to support open source in the IT channel? Yes
| and no. Hereâs why.
