Cloud services in Nigeria – Dimension Data is accelerating its global Managed Cloud Platform (MCP) in Nigeria to serve the needs of public and private enterprise as well as service providers. Dimension Data’s cloud offering will enable clients to accelerate their adoption of cloud computing, increase strategic agility, lower ICT infrastructure management expenses, and reduce cloud migration complexity and risk.
Cloud technology presents a new consumption model for ICT solutions and services wrapped in a predictable, monthly commercial model, which allows its adopters to reduce cost as cloud reduces the total cost of ownership of managing infrastructure and applications.
“The availability of cloud computing in Nigeria makes it easier for organisations to harness the cost and agility benefits of cloud as it provides organisations high speed access to secure, enterprise-class public, private, hybrid and hosted private cloud services in the country,”JideAgbaje, general manager: Enterprise Solutions, Dimension Data Nigeria, has said.
“While the benefits of cloud computing are very compelling, the complexity of planning, building and managing cloud infrastructure, is significant cloud providers need to address client concerns about security, compliance, integration, performance, capital expense requirements as well as deployment and operational risks – to allow clients accelerate their Cloud journey,” says Tony Munro, solutions executive, Dimension Data Africa.
