Additionally, this partnership has put ESG at the forefront of our vision for the future. Together, our events are carbon-neutral and we remain virtual when the situation calls for it. For the in-person events where flights are required, we are working to plant trees to try and offset the environmental footprint.
“Whether or not the events are virtual or in-person, the personal connections have remained and strengthened over the past two years.” — Daan on our partnership through the COVID-19 pandemic
What’s next for the future of TD SYNNEX and our vendors?
TD SYNNEX will continue to work with all of our vendor partners to ensure that our strategies are fully aligned. Next-generation technologies like hybrid cloud, cybersecurity, data and analytics will continue to grow over the next few years, and we will be there as a solutions aggregator and orchestrator to enable the IT channel to see growth of their own in these areas.
“We’re enabling specializations and embedding it into our overall strategy. I would expect a quantum leap of growth in the next few years.” — Daan on the TD SYNNEX—Microsoft alignment
We also continue to process the effect that the pandemic has on our supply chain and industry as a whole. Many organizations will move to new systems and processes as the shift to digital transformation is executed, and it’s all about reliably adapting. We will work with our vendors to ensure our partners don’t experience any slowdowns, all while being more quick and agile.
“We’ve been flying the plane while trying to change the engine mid-flight. Not only did we successfully fly the plane and change the engine, but we grew it and got there quicker. That’s what this team did this year.” — Reza on the TD SYNNEX—Microsoft team
