MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, May 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Dimension Data, the $5.8 billion ICT services and solutions provider, today announced that it is the recipient of a Cisco Partner Summit theater award for Professional Services Partner of the Year in Canada. Cisco unveiled the winners April 17 at its annual channel partner conference in San Diego, Calif.
"Cisco is proud to partner with so many well-respected and industry-leading organizations, and it is an honor to recognize Dimension Data Canada as a Cisco Partner Summit theater award winner," said Jim Sherriff, senior vice president, Americas Partner Organization at Cisco. "The Professional Services Partner of the Year award presented to Dimension Data recognizes its performance and expertise as a Cisco channel partner in Canada in 2011."
Since entering the Canadian market in 2007, Dimension Data has seen significant client demand for its broad range of information and communication technology solutions – including network integration, enterprise mobility, converged communications and public and private cloud – as well as managed and professional services, which has resulted in 30 percent year-over-year revenue growth in the region. Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, Dimension Data Canada continues to steadily increase its presence across the country, with expansion into Ottawa and western Canada this year.
"We're extremely honored to receive this recognition from Cisco, particularly during this milestone year marking our fifth anniversary in Canada," said Wendy Lucas, area vice president, Dimension Data Canada. "The award underscores our ongoing commitment to delivering the highest level of services expertise to our clients in this market."
Cisco Partner Summit awards are presented at three levels: global, geo and theater. Cisco Partner Summit U.S. and Canada theater awards reflect a partner's performance in a given geographic region of the United States or Canada.
On May 16 in Toronto, Dimension Data Canada will showcase a range of its IT solutions and services – including video and collaboration, enterprise mobility, telecom expense management and cloud – in booth #415 at Cisco Plus Canada. The event is Cisco Canada's largest annual educational and training conference focused on helping organizations recognize the synergies between business strategy and technology.
