Global ICT company, Dimension Data, has established a digital practice division, aimed at helping enterprises worldwide transform their businesses and become more digitally driven.
The new practice brings together seven Dimension Data businesses including Oakton, the Australian-based company which Dimension Data acquired in November 2014, Britehouse, Agile-Xpedia, iFACTORY, Core People and Data-Flo, as well as the existing application services business of Dimension Data Middle East and Africa.
The practice, which boasts more than 2000 employees, will work with a diverse ecosystem of partners to provide clients with the infrastructure and applications they require, whether they’re running workloads on-premise, through a hosted model, or in the Cloud.
It will also focus on the digital technologies including business process automation, the Internet of Things and data analytics.
Dimension Data Group CEO, Brett Dawson, said the establishment of the digital practice is another strategic step to help Dimension Data’s clients accelerate their business ambitions.
“In the last three years, we expanded our digital competence when we acquired the Oakton, Britehouse, iFACTORY, Core People, Data Flo, and Agile-Xpedia businesses.
“Our intent is to continue to invest aggressively in our digital and application capabilities, and provide our clients with the Cloud platform of choice for enterprise workloads, digital advisory services, application migration, digital application solutions, and management of SAP and Oracle environments,” he said.
Dimension Data digital practice group executive, Scott Gibson, mentioned that the era of digital transformation is here, and organisations that don’t embrace it are at risk of failing.
“Across the globe, we’re seeing more and more clients in both the private and public sectors looking to invest in digital technologies. A digital journey must start with the technology platform, and include business process automation, the Internet of Things, data analytics, right through to the client experience,” Gibson added.
