Dimension Datahas announced that its revenues for the year ending September 2011 has increased 14.8 per cent to reach $US5.79 billion from $US4.74 billion in 2010.
The company also attained a double digit operating profit growth of 10.8 per cent.
According to Dimension Data, its Systems Integration (SI) business, which makes up 78 per cent of the total revenue, was the main thrust behind the company’s success – recording a total revenue of $US4.5 billion and a 12.8 per cent growth year-on-year with an operating profit of $US202.7 million, up 7 per cent since FY10.
However, its gross margin was 0.4 per cent lower than 2010, reaching 21.8 per cent. The company said this was the result of lower managed services margins.
Dimension Data CEO, Brett Dawson, said, “We have built a strong foundation from which to generate growth. We anticipated key market trends such as IP networking, Unified Communications, virtualisation and Cloud, and moved early to provide our clients with the relevant solutions and services.”
This year, the group also continued to build on its substantial Annual Services Contract Value, with growth of 13.0 per cent over the previous year.
In the next 12 months, it will focus on building its Cloud solutions and services portfolio and global Cloud infrastructure and platform.
Dawson said that its acquisition of OpSource in July and the formation of its Cloud business unit were key steps in accelerating its Cloud computing strategy.
