Cloud transformation can be an arduous process but the bigger the firm the more often expert advice becomes a necessity.

In that regard, Dimension Data and Britehouse have announced a new partnership with international commercial real estate firm, International Workplace Group (IWG).

The partnership will see IWG enhance its platform through Microsoft Azure. This enhancement should lead to greater agility, application availability and resilience of its critical applications.

A large part of these enhancements require managed services from Azure which is where Dimension Data and Britehouse come in.

“The nature of the IWG business gives us the opportunity to showcase our level of expertise in implementing Azure for clients. IWG and their partners are transforming the world of work and creating personal, financial and strategic value for businesses of every size,” general manager for cloud at Dimension Data, Grant Morgan, said in a statement.

The partnership includes Britehouse providing a disaster recovery service level agreement at an application level. Both firms together will provide IWG with Azure skills and managed services.

“One of our main competitive advantages is the world-class technology platform we offer our clients around the world. With our growing number of large corporate customers and new franchise partners, this was the right time to invest in improving our services even further,” said chief information officer at IWG, Andre Sharpe.

“Our customers want a choice of workspaces and communities to match their needs and require enterprise grade service, security and reliability. We want to remain the first choice for flexible workspace provisioning in the sector,” Sharpe concluded.
