Arrow, DSA Encore Join Together to Address Market Demand for Converged Infrastructure Managed Services

Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW), today announced an alliance with DSA Encore to address increased customer demand for a single-source supplier for data-center and converged-infrastructure products and services.

Through the agreement, DSA will be available to customers of Arrow’s S3 business, as well as to solution providers supported by Arrow’s North American enterprise computing solutions segment. Arrow’s S3 business provides systems integration for business-transforming communication, collaboration and ongoing services solutions to large and midsize businesses. Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions segment provides leading-edge technology, services and support to IT solution providers.

“With the explosion of cloud services, BYOD (bring-your-own-device), Big Data and social media, clients are looking to their suppliers for support with helping them decide on the right technology infrastructure and, as importantly, the management of those platforms,” said Dr. Jeff Reed, chief technology officer for Arrow’s S3 business. “In parallel, the need for new technology has driven increased activity in data center and colocation decisions.” Recognizing that need, Arrow’s S3 business created a center of excellence focused on converged infrastructure and managed services, and its alliances with DSA and other data-center and colocation companies are part of the center of excellence.

“We see the acceleration of technology increasing at an exponential rate. From the telephone to the PC, to the Internet, to the smart phone, we have witnessed mass adoption rates drop from decades, to a few years,” said Mark Schneider, president of DSA. “In addition, the ongoing movement toward virtualization and cloud services has caused customers to take a second look at their current data center and colocation environments, as to whether to expand, contract or consolidate those facilities.”

Schneider continued, “Working with a full-service technology provider like Arrow further enables DSA to provide a complete data-center and unified-computing lifecycle solution.”

To kick-off the agreement, Arrow and DSA are hosting a webinar on July 10, at 10 a.m. CT entitled, “The future of your data center (where will your technology infrastructure reside next year?).” The webinar will be hosted by Reed and Schneider. This will be the first of a series of educational sessions. Future topics will include cloud considerations (private, public, or hybrid), OpenStack, Big Data, and BYOD.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
