Dimension Data’s Cloud Accreditations and Competency Awards

01 September 2021

How do you know you have a top cloud partner? 

It’s difficult to put a value on customer confidence and the trust that comes with partnering with the right service provider for your business. We strive to be a trusted advisor to our clients, and we’re committed to ensuring that we continue to deliver world-class services and solutions through our exceptionally talented individuals.  

We are delighted to share the news of four of our most recent awards which validates our in-depth knowledge of the cloud landscape and our capabilities to deliver across the hybrid IT environment from cloud to the edge, all underpinned by a secure and intelligent network fabric. 

Achievement 1: Azure Expert Managed Service Provider 

We are honoured to be recognised by Microsoft with the highest accolade for Azure Cloud experience, being named an Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (MSP). This achievement helps to differentiate us as a top tier partner to enable and support hyper-scale cloud implementations, from mission-critical apps, entire data centre footprints, to hybrid environments.

This unique differentiator highlights our capacity to offer clients a full stack of services that have moved us to be recognised and awarded in the cloud development arena. The achievement further strengthens our strategic partnership with Microsoft, and together we’re committed to driving digital transformation with our clients.

Achievement 2: Advanced Specialisation Certification by Microsoft 

We recently received the Advanced Specialisation Certificate from Microsoft for our Cloud Application Modernisation which helps to differentiate us in the market when it comes to modernising legacy applications with a trusted partner. With the growing pressure for organisations to perform better and rapidly create value at scale, businesses are quickly increasing their reliance on cloud technologies and rushing to embrace cloud-built applications and relocate existing digital assets. 

Through the rigorous audit process that’s set to meter the earning of an advanced specialisation, we successfully took the opportunity to validate our technical skills, methodologies, processes, and the frameworks we typically use in our projects. 

What this certification means for you 

This certification cements our skills and expertise to perform complex application modernisation projects and the ability to use cutting edge native cloud services in our application development cycle. This further validates our cloud development skills, experience and capabilities as a trusted partner and a testament to our talented technical teams and deep Microsoft knowledge. Our cloud clients can be assured that we meet the highest standard for service delivery, support and security. 

Modernise your legacy applications with a trusted partner

Achievement 3: VMware Cloud Verified 

We are proud to share that we have achieved VMware Cloud Verified status and that we are one of the largest service providers in Africa to have achieved this verification. 

The migration from legacy infrastructure demands that organisations focus on solutions that are not just capable of meeting their needs today, but the changing needs of tomorrow. Modern infrastructure needs to be secure, agile, and automated, ensuring consistent user experience in a transforming cloud-first and edge computing environment. By achieving VMware Cloud Verified status, we are further extending the VMware support we offer our clients, who are strategically digitising their operations. When leveraging its secure, reliable, and agile cloud environment built on a VMware backbone, clients have the flexibility of innovating in multi-cloud environments and ensuring secure access.

Companies want lower costs, less complexity, more security, and ease of compliance, however often they may feel that cloud functionalities conflict with their desires to streamline costs and efficiencies. That’s why having the right partner with the right knowledge and skills is so important to help guide our clients to see the desired value and ROI. Through the right partnership and planning, companies can fine-tune costs and efficiencies, operate as a secure, agile, and automated entity, and provide a consistent user experience.

Having greater flexibility and more choice with software-defined private cloud

Achievement 4: SAP® Pinnacle Award in the Global Outsourcing Service Partner of the Year Category

The Intelligent Enterprise very quickly went from being something beyond the horizon to something we leverage daily. We strive to help organisations unlock new ways of running their business with solutions, services and experiences that are no longer beyond the horizon.

The Pinnacle Award in the Global Outsourcing Service Partner of the Year category recognises us as an SAP partner for demonstrating excellence in managing customer environments in the cloud, on premise, or in hybrid scenarios. It also demonstrates excellence in being a trusted advisor to clients in managing the transition to cloud solutions and to SAP S/4HANA®. Our partnership with SAP strengthens our ability to continue developing agile, flexible, and innovative solutions to meet the specific requirements of our clients globally.
