SCC, the leading technology integrator, has become the first UK IBM business partner to secure its ‘Dynamic Infrastructure (DI) Elite’ status. SCC’s pre-eminent expertise in the breadth of IBM’s technologies was pivotal to it achieving ‘Elite’ recognition. It also reinforces SCC’s strategic commitment to partners whose strategies and technologies are proven to remove unnecessary cost, achieve ROI and deliver growth through service performance.
IBM’s Dynamic Infrastructure is an approach that addresses how technology can help customers manage existing business challenges and achieve future opportunities, irrespective of their starting point, through a proven set of capabilities and products. It aims to accelerate the opportunity to transform the IT network through future proofed solutions that firmly link IT to an organisation’s success, while also addressing individual customer ‘pain points’.
James Rigby, SCC’s UK Managing Director, said:
“It’s imperative to change how we think about the infrastructure. At SCC, we understand that clients face real operational challenges, higher service expectations, rising costs and new risks. A Dynamic Infrastructure will help organisations move beyond these challenges, achieve breakthrough productivity levels, accelerate value creation and achieve agile business operations.
“In becoming the only UK partner operating at the highest level, ‘Elite’; SCC is qualified to deliver workshops that facilitate and direct the opportunities for transformation so technology and business assets can best work together, underpin performance and support profitability which is so important in today’s fast changing and cost conscious business climate.”
Henrik Schlegel, IBM’s Vice President, Sales, Business Partners, North-East Europe, said:
“IBM is very pleased to have SCC’s enthusiasm and commitment which has led to it becoming the first business partner in the UK to achieve the stringent Dynamic Infrastructure Elite status. IBM’s business partner community, and their adoption of DI, is key to our mutual success in 2010. With this accreditation in place, SCC and IBM can help their customers achieve the very real business benefits of deploying our DI model.”
SCC’s James Rigby added:
“Our long standing commitment to IBM solutions, and our investment in this programme, reinforces our focus on helping customers profit from their investment in IT. Dynamic Infrastructure is all about making it easy to put the smartest, greenest, fastest technology into an organisation, be that either a standardised or a customised solution.”
