Intel Outlines New Growth Opportunities For Partners


Tablets, 2-in-1s, re-imagined desktops, servers and the Internet of Things (IoT) represent key growth opportunities for partners over the next twelve months, Intel said at a gathering of leading technology channel businesses. About 500 Intel Technology Partners from Asia Pacific and Japan attended the 2014 Intel Solutions Summit (ISS) held in Singapore recently.


This partner event is among the largest global events that Intel organizes every year. Ferhad Patel, director, reseller channel organization (RCO), Asia Pacific and Japan at Intel said the computing industry is undergoing rapid transformation, and that this presents a diverse and growing range of opportunities for the company’s channel partners.

“Intel’s strategy is to embrace computing in all its forms. We are taking Intel Architecture into new markets, like IoT, while the 2-in-1 form factor is expanding into new verticals like education,” said Patel. “Meanwhile, compelling new form factors such as mini PCs and all-in-ones (AIOs) are challenging traditional assumptions about desktops and driving renewed excitement,” he said.

The company also launched the newest offering in its Next Unit of Computing (NUC) product line – the first to be powered by an Intel Atom E3815 processor (based on the company’s “Bay Trail” architecture). The new NUC, model DE3815TYKH, is designed with thin client applications in mind. The new NUC is a great solution for kiosks, point-of-sale and digital signage. It also is expected to be relevant to the space-constraints of modern Asia’s urban homes. The new product is now available for distribution.

Intel also announced the first APJ partners for its recently-introduced Education 2-in-1, Intel’s first ever education-targeted reference design using the 2-in-1 form factor.
