Dimension Data and Cisco have announced a new co-innovation agreement, to develop a deeper collaboration environment and framework to jointly solve clients’ business needs. Drawing on their respective core strengths, competencies, and technologies, Dimension Data and Cisco are coming together to provide the scale and market-reach to transform ideas into viable, deployable solutions.
As part of the multi-year agreement, both companies plan to leverage Cisco’s global network of Co-Innovation Centres to drive collaboration in key areas such as 5G, Internet of Things, and Blockchain. Additionally, the two companies will continue to enrich and expand their Connected Conservation program that is leveraging sophisticated solutions to protect and better the planet, endangered animals, and their communities.
Working closely to innovate beyond traditional products to solve business and operational challenges will allow both companies to drive more ambitious projects and outcomes. They share a vision of tapping into their deep pools of existing technology and co-innovating with customers and the broader ecosystem to meet client needs as they arise and deliver enhanced capabilities in an agile fashion.
Dimension Data and Cisco have over 28 years of experience working together, bringing to market a technology portfolio that offer solutions from the cloud to the data centre, and all the way out to the edge. The focus remains delivering new customer experiences, transforming processes and business models, and empowering workforce innovation.
