Stock quotes in this article: IM

SANTA ANA, Calif., April 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE:IM), the world's largest technology distributor and a global leader in IT supply-chain, mobile device lifecycle services and logistics solutions, today announced it has teamed with SAP AG (NYSE:SAP), a provider of enterprise application software, to help expand the market reach of SAP's enterprise mobility solutions. Working closely with SAP, Ingram Micro Mobility expects to leverage its broad and deep value-added reseller (VAR) channel to drive SAP® solutions further into the small-to-medium-sized business (SMB) market.

Beginning April 15, 2013, Ingram Micro Mobility will provide its VAR community access to the SAP mobile platform, which includes SAP Afaria® mobile device management solution. Ingram Micro VARs will also have access to SAP's extensive portfolio of more than 300 mobile apps that support tasks from simple productivity to complex transactions across 24 different industries, employing mobile devices using iOS, Android, Windows and BlackBerry operating systems. Leveraging Ingram Micro's extensive distribution infrastructure and expertise will make the SAP apps available in an on-demand fashion through the proven Ingram Micro distribution model to the VAR community and end customers. Ingram Micro and SAP expect the relationship to benefit VARs and end-users by providing a cost-effective solution for the SMB market to take advantage of enterprise-class mobile solution software applications to dramatically improve productivity.

Ingram Micro, through its recent acquisition of BrightPoint, is uniquely positioned as the world's largest technology distributor, with additional leading global mobile device lifecycle management services. Ingram Micro Mobility has a broad, established reach into mobile retail channels and extensive VAR relationships that service the largest base of small-to-medium-sized businesses throughout North America. On April 8, 2013, at the Ingram Micro Cloud Summit, Ingram Micro will begin to educate VARs on what it takes to successfully drive business in a mobility-centric world and how the SAP mobile platform can best be leveraged in the SMB market.
