Dimension Data establishes a 2,000 employee-strong digital practice
Dimension Data, the global ICT solutions and services provider, today announced that it has established a Digital Practice aimed at helping enterprises across the globe to transform their businesses and become more digitally driven.

The Practice, which boasts over 2,000 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.
During the past 30 years, Dimension Data has built up strength in technology solutions and services.

The Group also has a full suite of services and strong consulting, enterprise services, and ITaaS capabilities.

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.”-ENDS-
