SCC, the leading pan-European technology integrator, has agreed to a strategic investment programme over the next two years to grow a substantial HP networking business.

SCC, the leading pan-European technology integrator, has agreed a strategic investment programme over the next two years to grow a substantial HP networking business. The agreement underlines SCC’s market leading position with HP and its expertise in selling network solutions that meet the end customer’s business needs.

The investment includes new recruitment involving ‘building a dedicated and specialist sales resource and both recruiting new and training existing technical expertise’, explains Andy Wright, SCC’s Director for Vendor Alliances. This will extend and strengthen SCC’s networking capabilities as part of a long standing strategy to enrich and extend its infrastructure services.

Andy Wright adds: “Increasingly, the network infrastructure is not keeping pace with the growth in applications to be a competitive differentiator. Our customers both private and public stand to achieve significant cost savings, reduce TCO and purchase price and use their network resource more effectively by taking advantage of new opportunities, such as unified communications. This will help to release business potential and create competitive edge.”

SCC already has a strong track record in the corporate UK market place for providing unified communications solutions having invested heavily in its capabilities and successfully grown a multi-million pound business. The new agreement with HP to develop its network business is the latest move to meet changing customer needs and help deliver strategies to cope with the new demands being made on their networks.

Alan Ryan, who runs SCC’s networking business, explains: “The network must be able to fully support both the organisation and new technologies, including unified communications, AV or VoIP, to achieve real competitive advantage. Today, employees have become accustomed to being part of an ‘always-on’, perpetually connected culture and the ability of an organisation to rapidly adopt emerging technologies is now a real expectation.

“We understand these market drivers and when aligned with our customer experience in the UK market, our strong technical skills and an ongoing investment in our networking capability, we are strongly positioned to maximise our customer’s operational effectiveness, reduce their cost base in the long term and align the IT strategy to that of the business to release its full potential.”
