Endorsed by Dimension Data

Dimension Data is a leading global network and i-Commerce services Group. Listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), the company has the global reach and expertise to provide a comprehensive range of round-the-clock network services and interactive commerce solutions to global enterprises, telecommunications service providers and new economy companies. The Group has representation on six continents and operates out of more than 30 countries.

Dimension Data markets themselves as the 'Partner of choice for the continent'. I have approached them because of thier experience in 21 African Countries which include:

  • Botswana
  • Namibia
  • Zimbabwe
  • Mozambique
  • Zambia
  • Angola
  • Tanzania
  • Kenya
  • Uganda
  • Rwanda
  • Ethiopia
  • Cameroon
  • Nigeria
  • Ghana
  • Senegal
  • Mali
  • Malawi
  • Ivory Coast
  • Swaziland
  • Lesotho
  • South Africa
  • Dimension Data in AFRICA

    Dimension Data see the rest of Africa as a strategic market to focus on for the following broad strategic reasons;

    - given Dimension Data's leading position in South Africa, the group is well positioned to participate in large African networking integration and telecom projects as other African countries invest increasingly invest in their communications infrastructure. Dimension Data has therefore sought local presence in key strategic markets in conjunction with local companies to address this opportunities,

    - as a global Company, we need to be able to service Multinational Companies in all important areas of the globe - not least of all Africa, our home continent. A number of potential global clients (Oil companies, financial and manufacturing, mobiles service providers as well as ISPs) have a presence in Africa and this is likely to grow as our global presence grows.

    Dimension Data has an established presence in the Southern Africa region through our branch offices in Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe as well as in East Africa through our strategic interests in LANTech. In West Africa, we have an established partnership in Nigeria through which we offer services and support to the West African client base.

    Dimension Data Value Add to Clients

    As the leading IT solutions provider in South Africa, Dimension Data has been involved in providing our existing client base with leading edge services.

    Dimension Data offers the clients the same level of support and technology that they get in SA and the rest of the world within the constraints of local infrastructure.

    Dimension Data is differentiated from the rest of the players in Africa by our:

  • Commitment to the African Market and spread of coverage
  • Professional working business model
  • Specialised skills in the area of networking and communications
  • Economies of scale and depth of expertise
  • Financial Muscle

    Dimension Data Value Add to Local Companies (Enhancing African capabilities) The players in most African countries have not had the depth of experience and financial capability that Dimension Data enjoys in the markets that it operates.

    Through partnering with local players the company enables them to:

    - leverage off Dimension Data's track record to bid for large deals through access to product specialists and high level engineering resources;
    - gain exposure to, and access world class processes such as professional sales management systems, engineering implementation, financial systems, administration and logistics processes;
    - understand and gain exposure to Dimension Data's network services and I-commerce strategy and ongoing strategic input;
    - access to the total portfolio of products, services within the Dimension Data Group.
