Arrow Electronics has enhanced its multi-tier cloud platform, ArrowSphere. The new functionalities enable channel customers to create tailored multi-vendor solutions for their clients.
The significant enhancements would improve the design, functionalities and user experience, said a company release. One such enhancement includes an AI-enabled search bar for managing subscriptions.
Among other features it now has an extensive catalog of more than 25,000 offers worldwide, visualization displays the most popular offers being purchased by channel customers by region, an Intelligent catalog filtering by supplier, category, add-on, trial or customer category and a recommendation engine that allows channel customers to view complementary offers for building cloud solutions.
“We already had the customer base and the reach to make a big impact in the public cloud space, but with ArrowSphere in place, we are properly equipped to scale our cloud business to even greater heights,” said Nick Benham, senior partner manager, SCC. “Our customers are getting the customized, self-service experience that they expect, and we are seeing stronger customer loyalty. The deeper insights we receive allow us to plan for the future and budget accordingly.”
“We developed ArrowSphere more than eight years ago with the vision of creating an innovative platform for cloud, where channel customers can easily access our suppliers’ cloud products all in one place and build solutions for their end customers,” said Sean Kerins, global president of Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business.
Array Networks is witnessing significant market share and revenue growth in the Application Delivery Controller (ADC) vertical as per IDC market report, which also mentioned that the vendor is bullish on the India market. The company already has emerged as the strongest player in Aviation sector in India. Almost 12 percent of Array’s revenue generated is attributed from aviation sector. The other major contributors for Array’s growth this year have been Government, BFSI, Education, Media and Transportation verticals.
“Array maintains a strong presence in the Indian market with improved performance by effectively distributing traffic among multiple servers, optimizing resources by productively allocating traffic based on application types, and guaranteeing application and data-access coherence,” said Shibu Paul, Vice President – International Sales at Array Networks.
“The team at Array is continuously working on innovating the existing products to keep up with the growing needs and creating new and improved products in ADC and security for the Indian market,” he said.
In the coming quarters, the government’s push towards digitalization and investment in public infrastructure, and multiple smart city initiatives and continual investment in network infrastructure to improve customer experience will be the growth factors that would influence the market in India.
