Sean Kerins recently announced the acquisition of Distribution Central, a value-added distributor focused on security, data centre networking and cloud.
Headquartered in Sydney, with operations across Australia and New Zealand, Distribution Central has provided integrated technology solutions and services for more than two decades. When combined with our capabilities from the earlier Observatory Crest acquisition, this makes Arrow the leading value-added distributor in the region. In addition, it provides access to incremental and complementary solutions, as well as suppliers such as NetApp, Riverbed, Avaya, HP and Palo Alto Networks.
As expected, there is work to be done to introduce and integrate Distribution Central into Arrow, including integration with our existing ANZ business. We will be working over the coming weeks and months to ensure a smooth transition for employees, customers and suppliers.
This is IBM news rather than Arrow but it was too good not to share! Watch how a boffin at IBM can control BB8's movements with his mind!
