DiData bottom line boosted by managed services

Dimension Data has chalked up local revenues of $US660.5 million for the year ending September 30.

The figure represents growth of 12.1 per cent year-on-year growth and pointed the way to future investment areas, according to CEO, Steve Nola, said.

"We've had good growth across the business," he said. "Our managed services side grew quite substantially in particular and we'll certainly be making further substantial investments in that and other areas."

In March, the services integrator was awarded a three-year managed network services contract worth $40 million under the South Australian Government's Future ICT procurement program.

Due to reporting restrictions, Nola was unable to break out the separate performances of the group's three local businesses - Dimension Data Integration, Learning Solutions and Express Data.

"We have had very similar growth across the businesses," he said. "We've seen security grow 25 per cent year-on-year, while data centre solutions and storage was up 19 per cent."

Express Data managing director, Ross Cochrane, said the distributor recorded annual revenue growth of 11 per cent.

"It's nice to indicate to the market that there are good growth opportunities in the kind of complex product sets we carry," he said.

He highlighted IP telephony, which had seen many end-users upgrading entire networks.

"With all of this going on, businesses are also looking for add-ons like security. If you're putting voice and data together, you have to be in a secure environment," Cochrane said. "Robustness has also come into play, in terms of power. If you're putting voice over a data network, you can't have the power go on you."
