Basingstoke, 16 November 2021 – Tech Data, a TD SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX) company, has supported IBM partner Triton Consulting in developing a capability to migrate Db2 solutions to the IBM Cloud Pak for Data Systems containerised platform. It is thought to be one of the first partner businesses to develop such a capability in the UK or Europe.
Triton developed its migration expertise by engaging on Tech Data’s Practice Builder methodology for IBM Cloud Pak. In particular, Triton focused on the technical enablement components of the methodology with the goal of becoming formally certified as a Cloud Pak partner. It also drew on the expertise of Tech Data’s consultants in developing its migration capability.
Corin Wright, Practice Builder lead for UK and Ireland at Tech Data, said: “The work we’ve done with Triton is a great example of how effective Practice Builder can be in helping partners to go from where they are today, to where they need to be in tomorrow’s market, in a structured, methodical, and measurable way. It’s worked brilliantly for Triton, which is now in a position to offer a new kind of service that genuinely differentiates its business.”

Through Practice Builder, we can provide any partner with a tailored programme of learning and development that will accelerate their transformation and time to market in key areas such as IBM Data Pak, security, and cloud solutions.”
