Arrow Unveils Initiative to Enable Nordic Channel Customers to Sell Prepackaged Digital Transformation Software from TCS
 
STOCKHOLM – March 5th 2018 – Arrow Electronics today announced it will enable its channel customers in the Nordics to offer the complete portfolio of digital transformation software from Tata Consultancy Services’ Digital Software & Solutions Group.
 
Arrow struck the agreement with TCS to make it easier and faster for its customers in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden to enter the highly profitable digital transformation software market. The TCS software targets the retail, banking, telecommunications and government sectors.
 
Many enterprise software programs place a heavy burden on channel companies by requiring them to invest in highly skilled talent, niche programming skills or hiring data scientists before they can begin selling solutions. The TCS software, in contrast, was developed with the channel in mind. It’s built around industry use cases geared to delivering specific business outcomes – such as making city buses operate more efficiently or helping banks and retailers use big data to retain customers.
 
“Digital technology is rapidly transforming every sector across the Nordics. This is putting enormous pressure on our customers to rapidly bring solutions to market that solve real business problems and protect them from future disruption,” said Jes Kongsmark, managing director, Arrow ECS Sweden. “Our goal is to help channel customers quickly enter these fast-growing markets with digital transformation software that delivers greater business value, faster cycle to revenue and better profit margins.” 
 
“Digital transformation is such a promising business opportunity because consumer expectations continue rising in every industry,” said Seeta Hariharan, general manager and group head of TCS digital software & solutions group. “Given the increasing pace of change, the key to channel success is speaking the language of business, not technology. That’s why we designed our software to enable partners to deliver business outcomes for their clients.”
 
Digital transformation software from TCS Digital Software & Solutions Group is modular, pre-integrated and leverages existing IT investments, saving customers money. Pre-built, industry-specific applications can be deployed in just weeks.
