Partnership bolsters ability to deploy expedited cloud modernization solutions from domestic ISVs to Canadian public sector and commercial clients

TEMPE, Ariz., November 18, 2020 – Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ: NSIT), the global integrator of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ for organizations of all sizes, announced its Canada operations has partnered with ThinkOn Inc., Canada’s only wholesale provider of storage, compute and networking resources, to deploy expedited cloud integration solutions and public sector security clearance.

Insight Canada partnered with ThinkOn to further support Canadian independent software vendors (ISV) through ThinkOn’s GCloud.ca Marketplace, which is designed to simplify and accelerate the selection and procurement of approved domestic-based cloud services to Canada’s governments. Launched in August, GCloud.ca helps governments across Alberta, Ontario and Quebec process, manage and store data securely and in compliance with regulations and policies.

With deep experience in Cloud + Data Center Transformation, Insight possesses a deep technical knowledge base to assist government agencies and private-sector businesses of any size in understanding successful pathways to IT modernization. Insight is able to accelerate cloud solution integration down to weeks rather than months thanks to its more than 5,300 trusted partnerships across global solution providers and ISVs.

“Our partnership with ThinkOn reinforces a collective ability to extend each of our provider networks and catalogs of software and infrastructure solutions and services to Canada’s public agencies as well as the private sector. We’re providing a powerful combination of flexible and cost-effective solutions that will help clients transform and secure their infrastructure to amplify the value of their data,” said John Dathan, senior vice president and general manager of Insight Canada.

Both Insight and ThinkOn deliver critical data management and information asset protection knowledge and solutions to help companies optimize IT infrastructure investments. Insight prescribes end-to-end technology services, from IT consulting and strategy development for platforms and workloads, to implementation and long-term management of on-premises, hybrid and multi-cloud data ecosystems.

With more than 1,100 commercial and public sector clients, ThinkOn is recognized as one of the top accelerated growth services prospects nationally.

“Insight Canada is a fabulous partner to be an agent for ThinkOn in our federal government Cloud First program.
