  • 24 July, 2008 14:00

<p>After an extensive search, Mr Miller was hired for his wealth of experience in the Microsoft solutions and application integration industry, with senior roles in business development, product management, marketing and sales, and consulting in the business intelligence (BI), customer relationship management (CRM), collaboration and enterprise resource management (ERM) application domains in both the US and Australia. Those roles were with specialist integrators in the Microsoft business solutions market, for whom Mr Miller created new products and service lines, successfully turned around problem sales pipelines, and delivered profitable results.</p>
<p>He was also hired on the strength of his relationships with Microsoft both in Australia and Redmond, as well as with strategic clients in the Microsoft solutions market, with whom he has developed relationships for more than 13 years in solution sales and business development roles.</p>
<p>Mr Miller replaces Peter Menadue, who was promoted into a new global role at Dimension Data as director – global solutions and technology for Dimension Data’s global Microsoft solutions business. Mr Menadue’s role is pivotal to the future growth of Dimension Data’s Microsoft solutions business around the world, as this business is a significant growth stream for the company. Remaining based in Australia, Mr Menadue will be responsible for go-to-market offerings, solution development and lifecycle management, technical community management and intellectual property leverage for Dimension Data’s global Microsoft solutions business.</p>
<p>Mr Miller is responsible for Dimension Data’s MS-AI practice: Dimension Data’s line of business dedicated to building and integrating high business value solutions based on Microsoft’s collaboration and information management platform technologies, including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) and .NET-based solutions for enterprise customers. A recent example of Dimension Data’s work in this field is with the Australian Government’s national law enforcement information-sharing agency, CrimTrac (see Dimension Data press release “Dimension Data Builds New Intranet for CrimTrac”, July 15, 2008).</p>
<p>Based in Melbourne, Mr Miller reports to Duncan Brown, general manager of solutions.</p>
<p>Commenting on Mr Miller’s appointment, Mr Brown said: “Mark brings the passion and professionalism that we look for in our line of business executives. He’s very articulate and clearly understands the application integration business and market through his years of sales experience in this field. Mark also brings the ability to provide thought leadership and strong management perspective to Dimension Data.”</p>
<p>Mr Miller originally hails from just outside Chicago in the US starting his career with supply chain solution specialists Manhattan Associates before relocating to Sydney in 2001 to work for mid-market business solutions integrator Professional Advantage. Prior to joining Dimension Data, Mr Miller was capability director with Microsoft technology integrator Avanade, and before that was national manager – business intelligence at specialist Australian Microsoft integrator SDM.</p>
<p>Reflecting on his appointment, Mr Miller said: “This is a very exciting opportunity for me. I’ve had a long history of working with companies in start-up mode as well as building product businesses in expansion mode in the BI, enterprise collaboration, supply chain solutions and Microsoft Dynamics product lines, and I believe there is a great opportunity for me to help drive growth and expansion areas for Dimension Data’s Microsoft solutions business.”</p>
<p>Mr Miller holds a Bachelor of Science in Material Science from Purdue University in Indiana, USA. He is also a fitness fanatic with a passion for cycling, hiking, scuba-diving, reading and travelling.</p>
