Tech Data launches Microsoft Power Platform centre of excellence in cooperation with Hikari

Tech Data is embarking a new strategic cooperation with Hikari, a specialist provider of Microsoft Power Platform services. Working together with Hikari, Tech Data has launched a Power Centre of Excellence for its customers in Europe. This new service enables solution providers to deliver high-speed app development and innovative business process automation (BPA) for their end customers.

The Power Center of Excellence is available to all Tech Data partners and their end customers through an automated engagement process using the Power Platform Automate function. Requests for Power Platform services are passed seamlessly to the Power Center of Excellence’s team of business consultants and engagement managers.

“Post pandemic, there is an increasing market demand for solutions that harness data to provide quick and easy access to actionable insights and efficiencies through digital innovation”, said Denis Fouquet, vice president, cloud and software solutions, Europe, Tech Data. “The Power Platform Centre of Excellence opens a route for partners and end customers to address this opportunity by bridging the digital skills gap and accelerating their ability to develop apps and implement business process automation at high speed without the need to invest in their own consulting practices.”

Toby Bowers, General Manager, Product Marketing, Business Applications at Microsoft, said: “We are excited that Tech Data and Hikari are leveraging Power Platform in this new initiative – they truly embody the principle that ‘partners can do more.’  We are seeing strong demand from customers of all sizes for low-code solutions as fast, efficient, and cost-effective way to meet challenges in the current business environment. As an easy-to-use solution that integrates with existing Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, and Azure investments, Microsoft Power Platform will provide a solid foundation for delivering tangible business impact for customers.”

“We are delighted to announce Hikari’s strategic cooperation with Tech Data which embodies our joint mission of bringing the transformational capabilities of the Microsoft Power Platform to partners and customers throughout Europe. The combination of Hikari’s market-leading Power Platform expertise and Tech Data’s global ecosystem offers a unique opportunity for partners and end customers to achieve significant business impact and outcomes with this technology. No matter where you are on your Power Platform journey, the Power Center of Excellence can help you every step of the way, empowering every organisation to adopt a low-code approach to solving today’s business challenges.” said Eamon Moore, Founder & Executive Chairman, Hikari.
