Avnet Malaysia today announces its SAP business strategy for Malaysian market. Here is a quick summary of the announcement.
1. New alliance with SAP is aligned with the company’s local strategy to expand its middleware products portfolio targeting financial services industry (FSI) and mid-range small and medium enterprise (SME) commercial markets in the country. Currently, Avnet is involved in several SAP-related IT implementation projects in the Malaysian government sector.

2. This move is expected to strategically expand SAP’s existing database and technology solutions customer base in Malaysia. - Avnet Malaysia’s strategy is to fill this gap by offering SAP analytical and converged infrastructure capabilities especially targeting the underserved market of unconventional and non-SAP-based enterprise software customers via channel partners.
3. The partnership with SAP is also timely for Avnet to embark on the new opportunities that presents on Malaysia's GST policy implementation.
Hence, basically what this means is Avnet is now carrying SAP as its products and services offering - and the potential is huge.
On Aug 2013, Avnet signed up as distributor for Red Hat.
