SAN FRANCISCO--Dimension Data, the USD 6.7 billion global ICT solutions and services provider, and its sister NTT Group company, NTT DATA, a leading global IT services provider, today jointly announced a new set of end-to-end services that 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.

NTT DATA is a global SAP services market leader and offers a complete lifecycle of SAP-related services that span consulting, implementations, upgrades, integration, applications management and best-in-class, automated cloud migration services. This portfolio includes significant investments in proprietary frameworks and industry-specific tools and accelerators to provide innovative client solutions that improve business processes while increasing speed to market and return on investment.

“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, Dimension Data’s Group Executive - ITaaS.

“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.”

Dimension Data’s MCP provides production quality, high availability and disaster recovery, which is essential for multinational, global implementations. By providing a certified platform, clients can run ECC, HANA, and S/4 HANA with quality performance.
