Christopher Makyao has been appointed as the new Managing Director for IT solutions and technology provider Dimension Data Tanzania.
Dimension Data East and West Africa Managing Director Richard Hechle said the company was beefing up its operations in Tanzania with increasing demand for ICT solutions within the market as more companies embrace digital transformation accelerated by the Covid pandemic.
“We are seeing an increasing demand for our solutions in the market among our existing enterprise clients and multi-national companies operating in the East Africa region. Technology has been crucial in keeping businesses going since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. But many companies were unprepared – some with crippling effects,” he said.
Hechle noted that while technology and innovation have always been connected, Covid-19 has accelerated the urgency of the mind-set shift many industries need to stay in operation whatever the prevailing environment.
As part of beefing up its operations, Dimension Data and its subsidiary Internet Solutions Tanzania are looking to hire more engineers and commercial resources to directly engage with its client’s in the country.
Speaking during his unveiling, Makyao said the company will be focusing on developing uniquely tailored IT solutions providing value-driven services through customer engagement, reliable and secure Internet connectivity and outstanding technology infrastructure that advances productivity and business growth.
“Our vision as Dimension Data is to be a partner of choice for businesses not only in Tanzania but in our region. We intend to do this by delivering innovative, game-changing technology and solutions to our clients, “he said.
Some of the solutions the company will be looking to leverage on include connectivity, Business Continuity, Intelligent Security, Cloud services and other IT solutions for existing and new high value clients who are the mainstay of the Tanzanian economy.
