In this episode of the podcast, Duncan McLeod interviews Grant Bodley, CEO of Dimension Data in the Middle East and Africa.
Bodley talks about how Dimension Data is doing in the region, how it’s weathering the tough economic environment and where the opportunities lie in the local IT services sector.
The CEO, who took the reins three years ago from Derek Wilcocks, discusses the IT outsourcing market, the demands that corporate clients are putting on IT service providers and where the industry is headed.
He also talks about the opportunities in the broader Africa and Middle East region, and which markets are showing greatest promise.
Bodley then turns to Dimension Data’s black economic empowerment strategy following the company’s ugly fallout with its previous chairman, Andile Ngcaba.
Lastly, he discusses Dimension Data’s portfolio businesses, including Internet Solutions, Britehouse and Merchants, and how they fit into the group strategically.
