Dimension Data consolidates all its subsidiaries in East Africa
Dimension Data is consolidating all its subsidiaries operating in East Africa to enhance efficiency, deliver better client service and provide for changing technology needs. Internet Solutions (IS), Dimension Data and Continuity East Africa (CEA), are to be rebranded into one operation: Dimension Data East Africa.
The Dimension Data Group of companies is also effecting similar changes in the Middle East and the rest of Africa where it has operations. The company's plan has already been approved by the Competition Authority of Kenya.
The realignment has seen Internet Solutions Managing Director Richard Hechle appointed to head the group's consolidated business in East and West Africa.
Commenting on the changes, Dimension Data Managing Director East and West Africa, Richard Hechle said, bringing the companies together will help the firm unlock opportunities for greater innovation, as well as giving clients the power to build their futures using game changing technology.
"Bringing all our people and operating companies together will allow us to effectively and efficiently execute our go-to market strategy and enable our clients’ success in a digital-first world. This digital-first world is characterised by technologies that are converging to deliver unified, hybrid and holistic solutions for real business impact," he said.
Hechle reassured clients that Dimension Data will continue to deliver services seamlessly and efficiently even as the company works through the integration process.
The company is reorganising its business around five go-to-market areas to deliver Intelligent technology and services that are aligned to their clients’ journeys, including Intelligent Infrastructure, Intelligent Workplace & Customer Experience, Intelligent Business Applications, Intelligent Innovation and Intelligent Security.
"Reorganising ourselves to deliver what the market demands is driven with growth in mind, we’re very excited about the future and are committed to bringing these changes online quickly. The role of technology in business is changing and, therefore, how it is consumed, and the decisions related to technology are changing. We are adapting to align our organisation to that of our client choices,” Hechle said.
