NTT DATA Selects Dimension Data To Reduce Operation Costs And Deliver Business Transformation

Managed Cloud Platform™ (MCP) increases efficiency and enables delivery of hybrid-cloud solution

Dimension Data, the global ICT solutions and services Dimension dataprovider, today announced it is working with NTT DATA, global IT Innovator delivering technology-enabled services and solutions to clients around the world, taking advantage of Dimension Data’s Managed Cloud Platform™ (MCP) to reduce NTT DATA’s operational costs and increase efficiency of corporate backup system.

Dimension Data MCP is designed to address enterprise concerns around cloud technology by delivering low-latency access to secure, reliable, enterprise class public, private and hosted private cloud services and is approved by The Uptime Institute, a division of the 451 Group.

NTT DATA selected Dimension Data MCP due to its ability to deliver a high quality platform that combines best-of-breed technology from Cisco and EMC along Dimension Data’s industry knowledge and qualified engineers as opposed to other public cloud services based upon less expensive hardware targeting general consumers. The MCP enabled NTT DATA to switch to Dimension Data MCP that could offer flexible and extensive system auditing to ensure all of its critical data is handled securely.

NTT DATA’s manager of System Development for the project comments, “With this showcase, we plan to utilise cloud services in the market. As an ICT provider, we also wanted to ensure the systems we use internally are constantly improving and optimizing the services we deliver. Collaborating with Dimension Data will enable us to lead IT initiatives through the creation of hybrid cloud models and access to a variety of services.”

With the adoption of cloud environments becoming a top priority among enterprise IT decision makers, many are still concerned about the levels of security provided by public cloud services, particularly in the handling of personal or sensitive data. By selecting Dimension Data MCP, NTT DATA will be able to benefit from a highly secure platform that brings together a range of service from public and private providers to reduce costs and speed up delivery times.
