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 announced the winners on Tuesday, 18 March at its Partner Insight Conference, as part of Cisco Live! in Melbourne.

“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. Its performance and achievements as a Cisco business partner in 2013 were outstanding,” said Jason Brouwers, director of the Partner Business Group for Cisco Australia and New Zealand.

“The Cisco Innovation Partner of the Year Award underlines our commitment to innovation that has driven the development of 3D Workspace. The award further supports our inclusion on the all-of-government DaaS panel, from which we’ve already secured key anchor clients with more than 4,000 users who are now gaining value from the solution,” says Gillespie.

“3D Workspace provides an efficient and highly cost-effective service for organisations wishing to have better flexibility for their workforce and better control of their business, integrating the best of the virtual desktop experience with that of the traditional desktop.
