NCR announces new Cisco data center certifications

New Cisco Unified Computing Technology and Advanced Data Center Architecture specializations will help accelerate customers’ next-generation IT transformations

DULUTH, Ga. – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) announced today that it has achieved two new next-generation data center certifications from Cisco Systems in North America, Unified Computing Technology and Advanced Data Center Architecture specializations. These designations recognize NCR as having fulfilled the training and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and Cisco Data Center Solutions.

“These new certifications position NCR well to assist our customers in their next-generation data center transformations, such as data center fabric, virtualization and cloud computing, which are consistently ranked by industry analysts as one of the top priorities for CIOs,” said Nadine Routhier, vice president, NCR Telecommunications and Technology. “We are pleased to commence this new milestone in our global relationship with Cisco, helping our respective customers use their IT infrastructure more effectively, elevate service level agreements and enhance their business agility.”

According to Gartner, North America exhibits the highest cloud adoption rate, with 60 percent of public cloud services worldwide.*

The Cisco Unified Computing System unites network, computational, storage access and virtualization resources in a single energy-efficient system that can reduce the costs and complexity of information technology infrastructure and provide dynamic resource provisioning for businesses that are becoming increasingly collaborative, mobile and distributed.

The Cisco Advanced Data Center Architecture (DCA) specialization represents the greatest level of partner participation in the Cisco data center space, with combined focus on networking, storage, and unified computing solutions and products.

In addition to obtaining the new certifications, NCR is an existing Unified Computing Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) in the Middle East and Africa region.

NCR has been a Cisco service partner and integrator for over two decades. It is also among a select handful of Third Party Maintenance (TPM) partners that have a presence in all five Cisco theatres, focusing on Cisco’s advanced networking, UCS and Telepresence™ solutions.
