Dimension Data has acquired a majority stake in e2y, a digital commerce consultancy firm based in the UK.

The move is designed to strengthen the technology provider’s digital business solutions portfolio across the world, through the addition of digital commerce capabilities.

Headquartered in London, e2y specialises in customer experience, project delivery and commerce, leveraging marketplace partnerships with SAP Hybris and Mirakl.

“With the future of commerce being firmly focused on the experience of trading online, and our digital business solutions portfolio centred on driving innovation for our clients, our investment in e2y will bring our clients closer to their customers on these advanced commercial platforms,” said Scott Gibson, group executive of digital business solutions at Dimension Data.

“It will also help us continue to guide our clients along their business transformation journeys.

“The strength of e2y in the UK and Europe, combined with Dimension Data’s presence in the Middle East and Africa, the Americas and Asia Pacific, will open up new markets for our clients to leverage a truly compelling digital commerce solution.”

According to Gibson, the provider will aim to leverage key capabilities across the advising, implementing and supporting of customers on a range of digital commerce platform solutions.

“This adds a complementary set of skills to Dimension Data’s core value proposition around systems integration, managed services and specifically in this area providing services that add to digital infrastructure consulting and services proposition,” Gibson added.

From a digital commerce standpoint, e2y provides consulting around SAP architecture and delivery, in addition to payment strategy and project management.

Furthermore, key offerings include enterprise resource planning (ERP) integration, backed up by data, DevOps and marketing expertise within the SAP platform.

Alongside SAP, e2y also partners with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Dynatrace and Mastercard, alongside New Relic, Optile and Rackspace.

“The digitisation of goods and services disrupts established business models and existing value chains, enabling new models to emerge,” E2y CEO Laurent Christen added. “e2y is a pioneer in digital innovation for commerce and marketplaces.

“We deliver solutions for our clients aiming to improve their customer experience and achieve growth.

“We’re excited to be joining forces with Dimension Data to help our clients benefit from enhanced digital commerce capabilities and transform their businesses.”

The acquisition comes more than two months after Dimension Data and NTT Communications completed the transition to combine cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) capabilities, six months after revealing the joint global initiative.

Launched in November 2017, the new offering will fall under the management of NTT, designed to deliver end-to-end, cloud-based solutions to customers.

Specifically, the unification of offerings aims to enable faster platform innovation, expanded connectivity options, as well as access to private cloud and cloud native services for organisations.
