Titan Data Solutions and Creative ITC today announced an exciting strategic partnership to ignite the channel with cloud innovation as UK businesses and public sector organisations look to reset for growth.
Titan Cloud offers a new range of award-winning as-a-Service propositions launched by the partnership to enable Titan’s reseller community to expand their services portfolio to explore new business opportunities and deepen client relationships.
Blending Titan’s distribution reach, experience in business continuity and cyber security with Creative’s managed services and cloud expertise enables Titan’s partners to sell virtual desktop, backup, disaster recovery, storage, monitoring, networking and security solutions. These are all provided to customers in an OpEx-funded, consumption-based model with a fully managed service wrap. Unlike many other cloud offerings, there are no egress fees.
“Together with Creative, we’re now able to help our reseller community access cloud budgets not previously available to them,” said Steve Low, Sales Director, Titan Data Solutions. “The nature of those client engagements also changes from a one-time product pitch to a consultative sale with ongoing revenue streams that assist cash flow. Best of all, their customers can tap into unrivalled technical support with less fixed cost, IT complexity and supplier relationships to manage.”
“Today, we’re levelling the playing field,” added Steve Patterson, General Manager, Creative ITC. “Increasingly, we’re seeing clients move away from tier one providers and hyperscalers with hidden charges, towards smaller specialist cloud providers investing in technical teams and green data centres. Creative is delighted to join forces with an established distributor like Titan, one that relentlessly pushes the boundaries of channel thinking.”
With the aim of building a continuous conveyor belt for channel transformation, the next planned development from the partnership will be a single-stop application modernisation solution that helps clients de-risk and update older software to the latest frameworks.
