Wellington, 20 March 2014 – Dimension Data New Zealand announced today that it has been awarded the Cisco Innovation Partner of the Year Award at the Cisco Australia and New Zealand Partner Insight Awards for its Desktop-as-a-Service solution, 3D Workspace.

“Cisco ANZ’s Partner Insight Awards celebrate the high achievers within our partner community. Dimension Data is a deserving winner of the Cisco Innovation Partner of the Year Award.
