Dimension Data has announced that Deloitte Consulting has chosen them as the cloud service provider to deliver Enterprise Application and Analytic workloads for business transformation and the Dimension Data Managed Cloud Platform (MCP), as the infrastructure-as-a-service.
As a result, Deloitte will be able to offer clients solutions such as Managed Analytics and SAP applications to multi-national clients across five continents, while Dimension Data provides and manages the infrastructure-as-a-service layer as a shared resource or private cloud. Deloitte will also have the flexibility to align the right cloud to the right application and workloads by choosing from Dimension Data’s public, private or hybrid cloud models.
Commenting on the partnership, Shelley Perry, SVP, Research and Development for Dimension Data’s ITaaS Business Unit, said, “The combination of the Dimension Data MCP and Deloitte business transformation solutions enables the client to align IT to business outcomes. We’re investing in new, advanced technology from companies like the EMC Federation and Cisco to enable a hybrid cloud strategy. By surrounding enterprise applications, moving to the cloud, with all the services and capabilities they require, we’re simplifying IT transformation.”
