Dicker Data adds Quest IT management to local portfolio
Dicker Data has bulked up its local portfolio with the addition of IT management vendor Quest.
The new distribution deal is effective from today and covers Australia and New Zealand.
David Dicker, Dicker Data chairman and chief executive, says the a ‘pleasing’ rate of growth for the distributor’s enterprise and mid-market business is driving demand for the solutions offered by Quest.
“Their range is a strategic fit for our reseller partners,” Dicker says.
Quest’s IT management offerings cover security, IT and cloud management, such as database management, data protection, endpoint systems management, identity and access management and Microsoft platform management.
Klasie Holtzhausen, Quest managing director, says Dicker Data’s extensive partner network will help drive Quest’s IT management capabilities across mid to large enterprises in Australia and New Zealand.
“As more organisations leverage the cloud, deploy mobile applications and virtualisation, our priority is to empower those businesses to spend less time on administration and more time on innovation,” Holtzhausen says.
Quest relaunched as a standalone company earlier this month, following its separation from Dell.
In announcing the relaunch, equity firm Francisco Partners and Elliott Management Corporation said the company will be focusing on expanding its IT and cloud management portfolio solutions to include SaaS solutions for the cloud era.
“Coupled with Quest’s systems and security management software expertise and market leadership, the company will continue to invest in developing the software solutions, both on-premises and SaaS, that empower its 100,000 customers worldwide to drive their business growth.”
