Distribution Central offers up data analytics with Sumo Logic deal

17 Dec 15

Distribution Central is bringing Sumo Logic data analytics to resellers throughout Australia and New Zealand after signing a distribution deal with the vendor.

Nick Verykios, Distribution Central chief executive officer, says data analytics is increasingly vital for businesses as they move away from just storing data and begin refining and drawing insights and business outcomes from it.

“With Sumo Logic we can offer our partners a leading data analytics solution to address their customers’ business requirements,” Verykios says.

The agreement comes as Sumo Logic says it’s seeing ‘significant momentum’ through out Asia Pacific, adding a number of new customers including Australia Post, Webjet, Whispir and Tyro Payments.

The company offers cloud-based log management and analytics to provide data driven insights to businesses. It says its offering provides secure, cloud-native data analytics service, delivering real-time, continuous intelligence across and organisation’s entire infrastructure and application stack.

Sumo Logic says the distribution deal is part of a larger strategy to develop a strong channel community locally. That strategy will also include a partner programme providing partner pricing and training, and designed to build up key partners.

Matt Handler, Sumo Logic vice president of worldwide channel, says Distribution Central’s technical expertise, particularly within data analytics and security, along with its strong partner base, is ‘ideally suited’ for the Sumo Logic platform.

“As Sumo Logic continues to invest and expand in the Asia Pacific region, Distribution Central’s extensive partner network provides the ideal way for us to scale and reach new customers within the region and we are thrilled to be partnering with them,” Handler says.

Distribution Central will be recruiting partners with a strong track record in hybrid and cloud distributed models to handle Sumo Logic’s offering.
