In a strategic move aimed at advancing smart city initiatives in North America, Smart Cities Council (SCC) and Ingram Micro are thrilled to announce the renewal of their partnership. This collaboration underscores the commitment of both organizations to foster innovation, build capacity, and address real-world challenges within the rapidly evolving landscape of smart cities.

About the Partnership:

Smart Cities Council, a global leader in smart city development, has joined forces with Ingram Micro, a global technology distributor and a leading technology solutions provider, to empower channel partners and cloud consumers with the tools and knowledge needed to thrive in the smart city ecosystem.

At the core of this collaboration is a commitment to Capacity Building, where SCC's Learning Management System (LMS) Academy will serve as a hub for delivering cutting-edge insights, training, and resources. Channel partners can expect a wealth of knowledge and tools to stay at the forefront of the rapidly evolving smart city ecosystem.

Simultaneously, SCC and Ingram Micro aim to solidify their position as Thought Leaders in the smart city domain. By generating and sharing valuable content, whitepapers, and case studies, the partnership seeks to shape conversations and drive innovation within the industry. The introduction of a Webinar Series will provide a platform for channel partners to delve into smart city concepts, featuring keynote speakers, thought leaders, and real-world use cases. Complementing this initiative, a new Podcast Series will bring together experts, industry leaders, and partners to discuss the latest trends, challenges, and success stories, fostering a community of knowledge exchange.

Moreover, the partnership will actively participate in prominent events such as the Smart City Expo USA, showcasing their initiatives, sharing problem statements, and establishing connections with potential partners. SCC and Ingram Micro are poised to propel the smart city narrative forward, contributing to the growth and success of their channel partners in this transformative era.

The renewed partnership will have a strong emphasis on the North American market, including key locations such as Arizona, Washington, D.C., and Raleigh, leveraging the unique strengths and expertise of SCC and Ingram Micro to address the specific needs and challenges of the North American smart city landscape.
