Group will focus on bringing together partners with complementary capabilities to advance the delivery of AI-driven solutions that will drive incremental business

Basingstoke, 24 April 2024 – TD SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX) has announced the launch of a new Industry Ecosystem community that will bring together ISVs, innovators, partners, vendors and representatives from industries to share ideas, create partnerships and develop new solutions using artificial intelligence (AI) and large language model (LLM) technologies.

It is also hoped that delegates from industry sectors where there is immediate potential to benefit from the deployment of AI will participate. Neil Cornish, business manager, industry ecosystems, UK, TD SYNNEX, stated: “Everyone is excited about AI and sees the potential to benefit. But the question perhaps is how, exactly, a specific sector or organisation can harness the power of large language models to deliver those expected beneficial outcomes. That’s the fundamental question that our industry ecosystem community will seek to address.

“We will bring together businesses and individuals with different skills and resources who can help each other. They may have an interest in developing solutions, but little or no technical knowledge of AI. Or they may be experts who can build systems but need help in applying their skills to real-world use cases. Some participants may be potential investors or end-user organisations. The whole idea is to identify how and where AI can be of the most immediate benefit – and to start putting all those different skills and capabilities together to create new solutions.”

The TD SYNNEX AI industry ecosystem was launched this week at IBM’s offices in London. It brought together a group of people who have been involved in the pre-launch discussions for the community to discuss priorities and set an agenda for the first open meeting, which is being planned for this summer.

TD SYNNEX already runs successful Industry Ecosystems for healthcare, financial services, manufacturing and for retail and distribution. There are also Technology Ecosystems that focus on cybersecurity and sustainability.
