What does ‘digital’ really mean? Digital isn’t something you can simply ‘buy in’ or adopt overnight. At Dimension Data, we believe that embracing ‘digital’ is about building a truly customer-centric business model on IT ─ the network, data centre, applications, and other infrastructure ─ which may be on-premise, or cloud-based.
The digital business model is agile, it’s cost effective, it’s global, and it can scale. And the time to embrace it is NOW! For some, the digital age is creating a degree of uncertainty … but it’s also opening the doors to exciting possibilities. We believe it’s an era of infinite potential.
Dimension Data can help you harness the transformative power of technology to achieve great things in the digital era. The four areas of digital technology we focus on are: digital infrastructure, hybrid cloud, workspaces for tomorrow, and cybersecurity.
This Technology Summit will showcase a panel of esteemed speakers and industry experts to guide you down the path to Digital Business. The highlight of the conference is an extensive presentation of current case studies and demo.
The conversation we’ll be having revolves around:

Dimension Data : Network with Digital Ambition - Start small, Start right
Are your networks up to the ambitions of digital business? Today, it’s all about honing your ability to exploit data and finding ways to turn it into business value.
Once you’ve clarified your data-related aspirations, the next step is to adopt a business-focused approach to building your infrastructure to support them. Business imperatives such as strategy and changing operating models must be matched with fit-for-purpose infrastructure that supports the new data paradigm and apply their minds to how they bring cloud, virtualisations, networks, analytics and security together to enable the business. To succeed in the digital world is to ensure that you first look at the business outcomes you’re looking to achieve, and leverage technology as the enabler. Unleash the power of data today.

Dimension Data : Hyper Collaboration for Swifter Business Decisions
Is your team on the same page when it comes to collaboration?
The thought of multi-national team collaboration – a nightmare, right? A juggling act of challenges: lack of face-to-face time, network lags, time zones that are difficult to plan around, not to mention the need for endless status and review meetings. And recent technologies (email, Skype, instant messaging) only solve parts of the problem. Find out how to overcome these challenges.

Dimension Data : Realise Your Digital Vision through Outcome based Services
Everyone wants a consistent application experience, regardless of what infrastructure sits underneath the workload. Companies are increasingly using hybrid cloud as a managed service platform to achieve this. As cloud adoption continues to rise, the industry is moving beyond simple self-service portals for provisioning infrastructure to managed services platforms that are completely software based.
Hosting your business IT assets on cloud or relying on a dedicated infrastructure or a combination of these two assets require tight integration through a secure network and various service management tools.
Delivering end-to-end complex to simple managed services at higher scale/efficiency /quality is what Dimension Data do best. Engage us to find out more.

Dimension Data : Cybersecurity for the Digital Age
Delivering a digital infrastructure enables many benefits to your business, while introducing more complexity and widening the attack surface of your company, no longer is sufficient to secure the edge. Agile companies think about and plan for a full lifecycle of data security. How do you assess, comply and manage in the new digital age?
