          ITaaS adoption was named by CIO.com, among the top 10 trends to watch in the global IT outsourc­ing industry in 2014. With the advent of Big Data and the Inter­net of Things, AccessKenya now seeks to cement its position as a market leader in the regional cloud technology space.

 

 

          According to Deputy Chief Execu­tive, Kris Senanu, AccessKenya – which was acquired in 2013 by the Dimension Data – will leverage its global synergies within the group with a view of becoming the preferred ICT partner for busi­nesses seeking end to end cloud solutions,

In June Dimension Data acquired the business continuity manage­ment firm Continuity S.A. The move brings to bear a combined 37,000 m2 of Data Center and Recovery facilities in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique and Mauritius.

 

“ These infrastructure invest­ments give us increased capa­bility and reach enabling us to offer the most competitive value proposition in business conti­nuity management, IT disaster recovery and data replication among other value added servic­es,” Said Mr Senanu.
