Dimension Data shaves 33 staff

Integrator claims staff retrenched to optimise operations as part of efforts to target emerging business opportunities

Dimension Data has retrenched 33 of its 1000-strong headcount.

The integrator's CEO, Steve Nola, said in a statement he could not disclose where the cuts had been made and claimed they formed part of a pre-emptive move to optimise its operations and realign the organisation to target emerging business opportunities in the market.

The affected employees were told Thursday morning of their fate, and provided with counselling and outplacement services, the statement said.

In recent months the integrator has had a number of significant wins, including a five-year managed services contract with Queensland-based healthcare provider, Blue Care, and became the first partner in the Asia-Pacific region to achieve Gold status with Genesys.

DiData also acquired a stake in Sydney-based managed services provider, BlueFire in December last year. At the time Nola, said the integrator had been looking to ramp up on-demand and software-as-a-service [SaaS] offerings and saw BlueFire as the most effective way to get to market.
