ISVs Gain Speed to Market, Higher Solution Value, Scalability & Agility
Remove the Barriers to Delivery
Datatrend partners with independent software vendors (ISVs) to enable custom configured technology infrastructure solutions for turnkey, streamlined sales and implementation of your software.
A strong infrastructure solution is an essential prerequisite to the achievement of robust software solutions and an ISV’s short and long-term business objectives. Infrastructure can serve as a value-added advantage and competitive differentiation, with consistent, repeatable implementation delivery, while fulfilling core requirements for reliability, affordability and customer specifications.
Datatrend can help move beyond reference architecture to develop an optimized, performance-tuned, purpose-built appliance with a certified bill of materials (BoM) and catered integration services. Instead of treating infrastructure as an afterthought or encountering it as a roadblock to deployment with individual client deals, ISVs can optimize performance and time-to-value with pre-certified configuration, efficient supply chain operations and expert integrated delivery, with the program flexibility to meet ISV preferred sales and delivery models.
Datatrend is an OEM reseller and integration partner with the leading IT infrastructure vendors, including Cisco, Dell, HPE, IBM and Lenovo.
Leave the Hard Stuff to Us

Flexible Delivery Model
