Distributor Tech Data UK has added the Sybase IQ system to its software portfolio, giving resellers "the largest range of SAP solutions available through distribution".
SAP Sybase IQ is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that provides big data analytics and data warehousing.
Tech Data UK said in a statement: "The addition of Sybase IQ means that Tech Data can now offers resellers access to the largest range of SAP solutions available through distribution, including SAP Business Objects, BI OnDemand, Crystal Solutions, and Afaria mobile device management via the Tech Data Software team and its dedicated SAP microsite."
The distributor also said it is "stepping up" efforts to bring more resellers into the vendor’s PartnerEdge programme to become SAP authorised partners.
James Reed, director of the software business unit at Tech Data UK, said: "With SAP Sybase IQ, resellers can expand their horizons and open up new opportunities and by engaging on the SAP PartnerEdge programme, you can tap into tremendous opportunities to take faster, more efficient and extremely scalable big data and highly optimised RDBMS solutions to the market.
“As a SAP Partner you will benefit from online training and support, access to self-paced marketing campaigns and resources via the Partner Portal and much more – and you’ll have the full support of Tech Data of course. We will be working with SAP to help partners generate business around analytics and big data – and there will be more initiatives and campaigns running throughout the year.”
