"We are honored to win the Distribution Partner of the Year award from SAP. It is a true testament to our team's high degree of performance in helping SAP enter and build a successful distribution channel," said Peter Larocque, President, North America Distribution, SYNNEX Corporation. "With 90% of the world's data created in the last two years and Big Data on pace to be a $50 billion industry by 2017, this is a huge opportunity for our shared customers. Companies need business intelligence solutions like SAP offers to harness and analyze the massive amounts of data into actionable business outcomes.
