Ingram Micro: The Blind Lead The Blind

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 02, 2017

Ingram Micro, as a huge as they are overall, with $40+ billion in annual sales, has never been a force in physical security, despite, or perhaps because, of their many lame attempts to sell into this market.

For example, Disaster at the Ingram Micro Pavilion, The Failed Ingram Micro Pitch Examined, Ingram Micro is Back to Defend IP!, etc.

Ingram is back again, failing again.
