Distributor Ingram Micro has launched an IoT (Internet of Things) business unit in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META) region. Over the last 24 months, Ingram Micro has launched several solutions-based business units including ones for cloud technology, cybersecurity and physical security. These centres of excellence have positioned the company to become a leader in these high growth segments, supporting the channel in the region and beyond.

IoT today is at the top of the agenda of all the leading technology vendors. Ingram Micro claims that it is well positioned to provide end to end solutions by combining vendor solutions with other IoT sensors, trackers, edge analytics, video analytics and software from many ISVs who have very industry specific applications.

These solutions will enable their users to add value to their business, to monetise IoT solutions, to be ahead of their competition, to have the best control on their business and to maximise cost optimisation of their operations. Ingram Micro also claims that it is positioned at the centre of the IoT orbit, where customers, solution integrators and ISVs can partner with Ingram Micro as their trusted adviser and one stop shop enabling them to accelerate the IoT opportunity in the markets they serve.

“Today, we are launching our IoT business unit which will be a centre of excellence, a solutions provider and a point of expertise for our partners. We welcome Tamer AbdelFattah, who will lead IoT business unit in the META region, and look forward to the contributions he and his team will make to our business.” said Ali Baghdadi, senior VP and chief executive of Ingram Micro’s META region.

AbdelFattah said: “I am very proud to lead our IoT efforts to create value for all our vendors and partners. Ingram Micro is making a big investment in IoT on a global level, including the META region. We are putting this investment in the centre of excellence with a highly experienced team. IoT show case platforms to be available to our vendors, channel partners, end-user customers and even innovators. We will deliver value added services and become even more relevant to our vendors and market in this technology segment domain.”

AbdelFattah has deep experience in IT and the telecommunication industry, having developed business around the region, with a track record of high growth achievements. He comes from a vendor background with 13 years in HPE, and five years prior to this with Vodafone.
