Dimension Data Acquires SAP Partner E2Y for Omni-Channel Expertise

Dimension Data has acquired a majority stake in London-based SAP partner e2y. Financial terms were not disclosed.

e2y leverages SAP Customer Experience Software (formerly SAP Hybris) for digital commerce projects and omni-commerce solutions. For its part, SAP acquired the Hybris platform for about $1 billion back in 2013.

The e2y team has experience architecting and implementing global payment solutions from credit cards to alternative payment methods around the globe, both firms indicate. Key areas of focus include fraud protection, mobile conversion, PCI DSS compliance, customer experience, APMs, Paypal and client-side encryption, e2y says. Moreover, the company’s omni-channel experience extends across PC, mobile, tablet, call center, point-of-sale and social media touch points.

Looking ahead, e2y has synergies with Dimension Data’s infrastructure consulting and services expertise, the firms say. In a prepared statement, Scott Gibson, group executive for Digital Business Solutions at Dimension Data said:

“With the future of commerce being firmly focused on the experience of trading online, and our Digital Business Solutions portfolio centered on driving innovation for our clients, our investment in e2y will bring our clients closer to their customers on these advanced commercial platforms. It will also help us continue to guide our clients along their business transformation journeys. The strength of e2y in the UK and Europe, combined with Dimension Data’s presence in the Middle East and Africa, the Americas and Asia Pacific, will open up new markets for our clients to leverage a truly compelling digital commerce solution.”

In addition to SAP, e2y’s key partners include Mirakl, Amazon Web Services and Rackspace.
