Tech Data Corporation is ensuring IT resellers have access to the information and resources they need to capitalize on the unprecedented economic investment the federal government is making through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Tech Data launched Economic Stimulus Watch, a comprehensive initiative that will help resellers track the billions of dollars in IT spending that is expected to result from ARRA starting as soon as this summer.
Tech Data vice president, Government, Technical and Integration Services Barb Miller will head the Economic Stimulus Watch. Miller leads Tech Data’s team of public-sector sales, business- development and bid specialists that supports resellers focused on IT spending opportunities in the government, healthcare, and education markets. Additionally, Tech Data’s Specialized Business Units, and Technical Services, Advanced Infrastructure Solutions, Client Systems, Networking, Peripherals, and Software divisions will identify solutions and key technologies aligning with ARRA spending objectives.
For example, modernizing schools, expanding the nation’s broadband infrastructure and digitizing medical records have been identified as IT spending opportunities by the federal government. Through the Economic Stimulus Watch resource center, Tech Data will identify solutions resellers can deploy to enhance children’s learning environments, bring online public services to a broader group of constituents, and implement secure, paperless record-keeping for small doctors’ offices.
