Tech Data Partners with Parallels to Bring Cross-platform Solutions to Partners in Australia and New Zealand


Tech Data today announced that it has partnered with Parallels®, a global leader in cross-platform solutions. Through this agreement, Tech Data will further support the Australian and New Zealand channels to drive enhanced customer experience, utilizing Parallels’ solutions such as Parallels Remote Application Server, Parallels Desktop for Mac® and Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft® SCCM.

Parallels Remote Application Server (RAS) has been highly rated and regarded as a major player by IDC in their 2016 MarketScape study due to the integration of its Virtual Contact Centre software. It is a feature- rich, mature, all-in-one solution used to virtualise Windows desktops, applications and data.

Parallels Desktop for Mac is a critically acclaimed solution, which has been iterating for more than a decade. It allows Mac users to run multiple operating systems at the same time, Windows on Mac, as well as providing its users the ability to virtualise Linux, Android and just about anything that runs on Intel chips including other instances of MacOS. It is the number one choice for Mac users with over 5 million active users.

The Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) extends Microsoft SCCM to maximise an organisation’s IT investment and use a single pane of glass to manage both PCs and Macs, essentially liberating companies to use the hardware and operating system of choice, whilst accessing applications seamlessly across the network and the internet in real-time and with data security via fixed and mobile devices.

“Two of the biggest strengths of Parallels’ Remote Application Server are simplicity and affordability,” said Wendy O’Keeffe, country general manager, Australia and New Zealand, at Tech Data. “Working with Parallels, we can now provide our partners with access to a leading virtual contact centre product to complement their virtualisation solutions, at a significantly lower price point.”

“Partnering with Tech Data gives us a globally extensive network and helps strengthen our reach across Australia and New Zealand,” said Kevin Greely, general manager, Asia Pacific at Parallels. “We’ve got a full suite of highly regarded virtual desktop solutions and applications, and with Tech Data’s specialised skill set and execution, we are confident existing and new partners will be able to take full advantage of our solutions.”

Tech Data will be running information and demo sessions on Parallels products in the coming months.
