Dimension Data’s strategy is designed to utilise its expertise in UC and cloud to empower enterprises to realise the benefits of the cloud, regardless of their stage of cloud UC adoption.
Its cloud services utilise the Group’s enterprise-class public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and managed private cloud platform.
The Cisco HCS-based services will be delivered globally as a part of its portfolio of public, private and hybrid cloud services with multiple consumption models to support both dedicated and multi-tenant, usage-based environments.
“As a trusted advisor to our clients, we know that implementing and maintaining UC can be a complex and costly undertaking,” Adam Foster, Group Executive, Communications, Dimension Data, said. “Expanding our existing cloud services powered by Cisco with HCS enables us to offer UC via a utility-based cloud delivery model, allowing clients to focus their IT resources more efficiently and strategically.”
“Cisco has had a longstanding relationship of over 20 years with Dimension Data, and they represent one of our largest global partners,” said Eric Schoch, General Manager, Hosted Collaboration Business Unit, Cisco. “With Dimension Data adding Cisco’s HCS solution as part of their UC cloud offerings, our global client base will ultimately benefit from the utility cloud UC delivery model, while also offloading the complexities of ongoing UC management.”
