Under the agreement, Dimension Data will develop and integrate Citrix technologies more deeply in its existing solutions and services to meet the growing client demand.
"There's been an increase in the number of clients wanting us to help them enable their mobile workforce securely, while at the same time reduce costs and complexity of managing desktops and applications. Citrix technologies will enable us to do that. With Citrix bringing desktop solutions to market for a number of years now, it is very exciting to ramp up for even greater success across a wider range of solution and services areas," said Peter Menadue, Dimension Data's general manager for Microsoft Solutions.
The two organisations will also work together to drive sales and marketing efforts across Asia, Australia, Europe, the Americas and Middle East & Africa. To maximise market penetration, joint initiatives will be governed globally but executed locally.
Prior to this agreement, Citrix and Dimension Data already had a strong relationship for many years, especially in the Asia Pacific region.
