Dimension Data will soon offer partner managed cloud for the SAP Hybris Commerce solution in New Zealand, as part of an agreement spanning the Asia Pacific and Japan region.
Terms of the deal will see Dimension Data offer a subscription-based offering - Dimension Data Cloud Services for SAP Hybris Commerce - off its Managed Cloud Platform.
For the first time across the region, SAP Hybris Commerce will be available on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, and managed end-to-end from an enterprise-class provider.
“With Dimension Data Cloud Services for SAP Hybris Commerce, we are helping enterprises to scale fast in digital commerce, while we deliver this as an end-to-end service,” says Manish Pratap, General Manager of ITaaS, Dimension Data Asia Pacific.
“We are also proud to provide this solution with the support of both SAP and some of its leading system integration partners that bring their domain expertise and SAP rapid-deployment solutions.
“We expect this to result in best-in-class outcomes, particularly aimed at clients focused on retail, manufacturing, food and beverage, consumer product goods, and wholesale and distribution.”
Well suited for both B2B and B2C markets, Dimension Data Cloud Services for SAP Hybris Commerce will initially be available in Singapore and India, with other Asia Pacific countries to follow.
“The partnership marries SAP’s leading commerce expertise and Dimension Data’s cloud services, bringing to the Asia Pacific region an end-to-end SaaS commerce solution scalable with growth,” adds Graham Jackson, Senior VP of Hybris Asia-Pacific and Japan, SAP.
“This means that businesses in the region now have access to capabilities that support complete management of their commerce strategy, from omni-channel real-time contextual understanding of customers to providing robust back-end support.
“Given the dynamic nature of the market, this partnership helps accelerate the ambitions of enterprises required to drive omni-channel customer engagement in the digital world, with quick provisioning times that can directly impact bottom lines.”
