Appointment of Local Distributor Extends NetApp’s Network within the Industry in Malaysia
NetApp announced the appointment of Glocomp Systems (M) Sdn Bhd to tap into new industry verticals. The move will also drive the distribution of integrated advanced data management and infrastructure solutions, as well as other specific industrysolution portfolios.
“We continue to see robust business growth for NetApp Malaysia driven by growing customer demand within the country. To meet this demand, we are expanding our distributor channel and tapping onto solution resellers to support the growing market. This new collaboration between NetApp and Glocomp Systems will serve to address end users’ demand for an integrated approach to data management solutions and converged infrastructure trends. Our partnership creates a new opportunity for customers to work with NetApp, simplifying implementation at a reduced time with proven solutions in the market,” said Heoh Chin-Fah, the newly appointed Country Manager for NetApp Malaysia and Brunei.
The first initiative, planned as a result of the partnership, will be to channel marketing via partner events, roadshows, and incentive programs to introduce a preview to selected endcustomers. This was rolled out in September last month.
“In line with our go-to-market strategy of building strong partnerships, NetApp’s storage solution fills in the missing link in Glocomp’s end-to-end convergence strategy. Glocomp believes there are opportunities to grow, especially with the introduction of cloud, on demand and utility-based solutions. NetApp shares our commitment in delivering solutions of the highest quality, and together we hope to better serve and add further value to our client’s business growth,” said Joseph Giam, Executive Director for Glocomp Systems (M) Sdn Bhd.
