Become a Partner.
Increase profit with a more robust security and compliance practice
Microsoft 365 products such as Microsoft 365 Business Premium, E3 and E5 and its expanded offerings have increased partner opportunities in both the SMB and Enterprise space, allowing partners to create their own IP and service offerings to increase total revenue potential. The security and compliance revenue opportunity will be a lasting demand for partners to meet. As IT budgets fluctuate, the need to monitor, detect and respond to threats from a growing hybrid workforce will be a crucial gap for partners to fill in the upcoming years. With support from Ingram Micro Cloud, you can develop the strategy, the skills, and the go-to-market solutions you need to begin scale your business and meet gaps in your customers’ growth areas.
Modern Workplace opportunity for customers
According to research from Forrester, the expected revenue opportunity for a new enterprise customer is up by 13% year-over-year (YOY) with an expected value of $96.70 per user per month. For the SMB partner, they calculate that the revenue opportunity for the SMB customer will grow 17% year-over-year (YOY) with expected value of $38.
Security is a growing partner opportunity across all solution areas, accounting for 40% of the estimated revenue opportunity for partners.1
