Magic Touch as Dimension Data takes up APAC Cloud honour

"We are proud to be recognised as a Challenger in the cloud-enabled managed hosting environment, demonstrating our strong execution capabilities."

Global ICT services and solutions provider Dimension Data has been positioned by Gartner in the Challengers quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting (CEMH), Asia/Pacific.

Published by analysts To Chee Eng, Arup Roy, Vincent Fu, and Kenshi Tazaki, Gartner says there were no Leaders in this year’s Magic Quadrant.

"We are proud to be recognised as a Challenger in the cloud-enabled managed hosting environment, demonstrating our strong execution capabilities," says Manish Pratap, General Manager - ITaaS at Dimension Data Asia/Pacific.

“Dimension Data has a large, and growing, footprint of seven public cloud platforms in Asia Pacific.

"This, coupled with our strong consulting, integration, managed services portfolio and hybrid delivery capabilities, has enabled us to provide innovative solutions to our clients in public sector, banking, retail, manufacturing and software services."

According to the report’s definition, “The CEMH market deals in standardised, productised hosting offerings that combine a cloud-enabled system infrastructure (CESI) platform — comprising compute, network and storage hardware — with cloud management platform software to facilitate self-service and rapid provisioning with managed services.”

Evaluation criteria for the MQ included an assessment of the product or service, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, customer experience, and operations.

The other criterion was completeness of vision, which included market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation, and geographic strategy.

"Our clients are using our cloud services to grow their production workloads across e-governance, digital commerce, ERP, CRM and SAAS based services which require business critical SLAs and solution support," Pratap adds.

"We have grown our portfolio with unified comms and collaboration offerings, SAP certification, mobility solutions with a single minded focus on delivering successful business outcomes for our clients."
