Services provider Oakton is set to become a Dimension Data cloud reseller following the announcement of a strategic relationship between the two companies.
““By using Dimension Data’s public cloud, private cloud and hosting models we are now able to offer our clients a range of alternatives to the on-premise model,” said Oakton chief Neil Wilson, in a statement.
"This is a natural progression for Oakton, building on our track record in data management and application integration solutions and extending this beyond the corporate firewall,” he added.
Wilson was not available for comment immediately, however it is believed the relationship between the two organisations is purely strategic, and does not involve Dimension Data taking an equity stake in the service provider.
“This is an important strategic alliance that will provide considerable benefit to both Dimension Data’s and Oakton’s large enterprise and public sector clients,” said Rodd Cunico, CEO for Dimension Data Australia, in a statement. “Our value proposition and footprint is complementary and collectively, we can address our client’s requirements and execute on their business drivers completely.”
