Industry pioneers set to bring global opportunities and emerging cloud technologies to ANZ partners

Sydney, 28 October, 2019 - Alibaba Cloud, the data intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group, and Synnex, the leading IT Distributor in Australia and New Zealand, have today announced a new partnership across Australia and New Zealand. Alibaba Cloud's solutions will be integrated into the Synnex Cloud marketplace hub allowing partners to capitalise on new and emerging technologies at speed - whilst scaling to open up new opportunities across markets.

The announcement will see Synnex's 6,000 plus channel partners across Australia and New Zealand gain access to Alibaba Cloud's comprehensive portfolio of Public Cloud and Hybrid Cloud products and solutions.

The collaboration will also bring a number of benefits to partners by providing a complementary set of solutions with existing cloud vendors; an ability for partners to differentiate from current Australia and New Zealand public cloud providers; competitive market pricing for partners offering public cloud to clients; and Hybrid Cloud and Private Cloud capabilities for service providers of different sizes.

"We are very excited to partner with Alibaba Cloud and bring their in-depth expertise to our clients. At Synnex, we are constantly striving to equip our partners with the technology that drives success for companies across Australia and New Zealand. Our partnership with Alibaba Cloud will streamline the process for our partners to effectively procure and configure solutions for clients," says Kee Ong, CEO, Synnex Australia and New Zealand.

Alibaba Cloud, as one of the world's top three cloud computing companies recognised by Gartner, will offer Synnex partners various enablement activities to gain in-depth knowledge of the solutions on offer such as webinars, lunch-and-learn workshops, certification and networking sessions. Partners can also leverage the Synnex pre-sales solution teams, and mature enablement programs, tools, resources and support.

"Our partnership with Synnex gives reseller partners the opportunity to experience our latest technology and access to our well-established, global ecosystem," says Raymond Ma, General Manager, Alibaba Cloud Australia and New Zealand. "Given our expertise and success cases in the past, we believe working with Synnex will allow us to empower more organisations from sectors such as e-commerce, FinTech, and media and entertainment to speed up their overseas expansion and to enhance their digital transformation capabilities."

Over the coming months, Alibaba Cloud and Synnex will run a number of joint programs to provide channel resellers with insight around the benefits the partnership can bring to their business and how it complements the existing vendors Synnex has within its portfolio and through the portal.
