NEW YORK -- Dimension Data, a global ICT services and solutions provider, today unveiled Dimension Data OneCloud Partner Program, a global cloud partnership initiative that enables service providers, education institutions, government agencies and trading communities to rapidly bring new cloud services to market. The program expedites time to market by leveraging Dimension Data’s global Managed Cloud Platform™ (MCP), sales and marketing enablement services, as well as its Cloud Exchange, allowing an ecosystem of cloud service providers that are able to exchange cloud traffic.
Responding to the demand for service providers to offer cloud-based services to businesses in their own markets, Dimension Data introduced its Provider Compute-as-a-Service (CaaS) in February 2012. The Provider CaaS offering delivers an enterprise-class cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) that can be marketed under the provider’s own brand. Dimension Data’s OneCloud Partner Program complements the Provider CaaS by providing clients with the marketing and sales enablement required to accelerate their cloud business, reducing time to market.
“The Dimension Data OneCloud Partner Program helps our partners bring their own cloud services to market more quickly,” said Steve Nola, CEO of Dimension Data’s Cloud Business Unit. “Building, integrating and launching a new cloud service is time-consuming, costly and a new journey for many of our clients. We aim to assist our partners in bringing a competitive cloud service to market more rapidly to respond to the growing demand for cloud services.”
