Dimension Data and NTT Data join forces to setup end-to-end services that will help clients leverage the agility and costs advantages of moving their SAP applications to the cloud.

The new services combine Dimension Data’s SAP Cloud certified data centers with NTT DATA’s extensive implementation, migration and application management services, providing clients with deep expertise and a variety of options as they consider a cloud-based solution for their enterprise applications.

Available in 16 data center locations around the world, Dimension Data’s Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) provides a comprehensive set of services to support SAP applications, and is certified by SAP for cloud, hosting and SAP HANA. The new services provide clients with a hybrid model that allows SAP to run on Dimension Data’s private MCP within the client’s data center, and at the same time, take advantage of its off-premise, shared public MCP for pre-production tasks, resulting in greater efficiency and cost management.

“Many of our clients tell us that they’re ready for the next chapter in cloud, which is moving production applications to a consumption based infrastructure. Until recently, clients found that self-service provisioning is complete, while self-service management of applications in the cloud remains challenging. That’s why Dimension Data is providing software and hands-on attention that will provide our enterprises with the confidence to move their SAP licenses to the Dimension Data cloud,” explained Steve Nola, Group Executive – ITaaS at Dimension Data.

“When you add NTT DATA’s expert services to Dimension Data’s resilient and secure cloud platform, clients get an end-to-end solution they can trust,” said Kaz Nishihata, executive vice president, Global Business, NTT DATA. “NTT DATA will manage the implementation of SAP with fully customized configurations, leverage well-established and automated cloud migration processes, and manage the ongoing services using our proprietary tools to improve service quality and manage costs. Combined with Dimension Data’s robust cloud platform, we can offer clients the mission-critical service levels required for today’s SAP environments.”
