Try as we might, ChannelPro rarely manages to coax experienced industry leaders into going public with upcoming announcements in advance. That doesn’t stop us from trying, though, and at Tech Data’s Channel Link event last week we managed to get a few vague but still intriguing hints out of company executives about what the distribution giant has up its sleeves for the second half of the year.

According to Yvette Martinez-Wilson, Tech Data’s director of carrier relations and services, mobile solutions and retail, mobile application management and mobile app development are a “huge growth area,” and therefore one of the distributor’s top mobility-related priorities.
“Being able to support our customers with a complete portfolio that supports that from end-to-end is very important to us,” she notes. As a result, Martinez-Wilson continues, Tech Data is in the process of reassessing its current offerings with an eye on expanding them.
“There will certainly be a couple of areas within our service portfolio [where] you’ll see more to come,” she says.
Pressed to define when those new services might arrive, Martinez-Wilson replied “this year.”
