Dimension Data and Cisco are celebrating the 25th anniversary of its strategic business relationship, spanning nearly 150 countries around the world.

After first partnering in South Africa in 1991, the two companies joined forces throughout the globe to launch initiatives in security, cloud, collaboration, Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure and a burgeoning Digital Practice.

“Partnering with Cisco plays a key role in ensuring that we consistently deliver world-class solutions and services to our clients to accelerate their ambitions,” says Brett Dawson, CEO, Dimension Data.

“Our market is changing but our partnership is more relevant than ever. Our clients need to capitalise in bold ways on the promise that digitisation and big data provide. And, we’re committed to help them do it - together.”

During the past 25 years, Dawson says Dimension Data has also grown and expanded its “as-a-Service” offerings on Cisco infrastructure, while also teaming up on the Internet of Things to deliver solutions for sports and recreation, Connected Healthcare and Connected Cities.

In the past two years alone, the companies have introduced initiatives such as helping the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) create a sustainable workplace of the future called the Living Planet Centre in its London head office.

“We’d like to thank Dimension Data and our customers for helping us achieve this historic milestone of 25 years of partnering,” adds Chuck Robbins, CEO, Cisco.

“The magnitude of our alliance and how we’ve been able to create new opportunities and grow together with Dimension Data is tremendous.

"We couldn’t be more excited to see what we will accomplish together in the next 25 years.”

During the last quarter of a century, Dimension Data has helped deliver key wins for Cisco, including Everything as a Service at the Australian Hosted G20.

In a world first, the Australia Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, responsible for the 2014 G20 Leaders’ Summit in Brisbane, used cloud to deliver a secure networking and virtual desktop to keep world leaders and media connected, as well as ensure significant cost savings for this annual event.

Furthermore, the long-time partner also assisted the first bank in Australia fully adopting cloud computing.

As a digital business, ING DIRECT Australia relies on technology to provide its 1.5 million customers with a banking experience.
