Brett Dawson, Dimension Data's Group CEO, said, "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. Our market is changing but our partnership is more relevant than ever. Our clients need to capitalize in bold ways on the promise that digitization and big data provide. And, we're committed to help them do it -- together."
In the past 25 years, Dimension Data has also grown and expanded its "as-a-Service" offerings on Cisco infrastructure and the companies have teamed 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 groundbreaking 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.
David Southern, Director of ICT at WWF in the United Kingdom, said, "Dimension Data and Cisco helped us create a modern, sustainable workplace for our organization using technology in a way core to our corporate philosophy. We expect that alignment, with the promise of digital technology, will open a whole new world of possibilities. Here's to the next 25 years."

Kevin Vermaak, founder of Absa Cape Epic, said, "Our partnership with Dimension Data has been critical in achieving stellar returns on our investment in content creation.
