Cisco and Dimension Data: 25 years strong and bolder together
In 1991, Jeremy Ord, John Chambers, and I agreed the terms of a strategic Cisco and Dimension Data relationship over a handshake. That gentlemen’s agreement has stood us in great stead. Together, our businesses have grown dramatically, outperforming our competitors by a wide margin. Pairing Cisco’s R&D, amazing products, sales, and marketing with Dimension Data’s global footprint and service delivery models allows us to provide our clients a more complete solution, yielding business results better together than any alternative.
Our 25-year celebration has been made even more special with the awards we’ve been honoured to receive at Cisco Partner Summit. We brought home a record five global awards, 22 awards in our regions and countries, and a global marketing award. These awards span Architectural Excellence, Partner of the Year, and Services.
The world is changing. The potential of the digital era outstrips every preceding era tenfold. Businesses need to capitalise in bold ways on disruptive technologies and the promise digitisation and big data can provide. As Cisco bets big on digital, we’re right here to double down with them, delivering on that promise.
Our mission is to enable greatness for our clients. By unlocking the potential of the digital era, we’ll be even bolder together with Cisco in the next 25 years.
