Both companies have announced that through the Catalyst Alliance they will make investments to develop and jointly market and sell solutions that allow clients to realise value from business strategies “based on hybrid cloud and enable them to adopt new technology while managing risk.”
Steve Nola, Dimension Data’s Group Executive for IT-as-a-Service, says the Catalyst Alliance will help clients realise the benefits of hybrid cloud that will be used to serve core business applications anywhere in the world.
“We like EMC’s commitment to disruptive innovation to help clients navigate IT transformation. By combining EMC’s technology leadership with Dimension Data’s extensive services portfolio and global reach, clients are able to accelerate their growth, creating value for their customers and financial returns for their shareholders,” Nola said.
And, Snyder says this disruption is creating “transformational opportunity” - “businesses across all industries are swiftly moving to reinvent themselves for a new Digital Age, where technology is used to grow, innovate, enhance customer relationships and make employees more productive.
“This alliance will enable those transformations both through scale and speed.”
Dimension Data and EMC say that through the new joint initiative, they plan to deliver clients comprehensive solutions that span private cloud on or off premises, public and hybrid cloud including advanced managed services for storage.
