Dell Inc gives certification to Anana, First Cambodia

First Cambodia President and CEO Heng Houn Erya accepts Dell’s EA certification at a seminar in Phnom Penh last week.

Accreditation makes companies first in nation to become partners with computer maker in its ‘Enterprise Architecture’ support

Technology giant Dell Inc announced last week it has accredited Anana Computer and First Cambodia Co Ltd as Dell Enterprise Architecture (EA) Certified Partners.

Dell's director and general manager for Emerging Markets Asia, Valerie Lim, said the certificate showed the partners had the product knowledge and skills required to provide quality support to potential customers, she said.

"We expect our partners to be trained and to be able to provide solutions for all our customers."

The certifications, announced during a two-day seminar to launch Dell's 11th Generation server, came as the company was trying to expand its presence in Asia, Lim added.

"As our business grows in the developing market, Dell will continuously explore new potential partners who can help expand our presence in local countries - not only Cambodia, but across the Asian region," she said.

Rob Jeremiassen, Dell's South Asia Enterprise Sales director, said it was very important for the company to find the right local partners.
"In enterprise architecture, it's very important for us to have partners that can deliver data solutions," he said

Heng Houn Erya, president and CEO of First Cambodia, said it was the first time that Dell had certified Cambodian companies despite having been in the market for more than ten years.

To qualify for an EA certificate, the company needed to have at least four staff holding a combined 10 certificates from Dell. "My company has 10 staff with those certificates," he said.

Anana commercial manager Say Sokha said that six staff held certificates and two more were 80 percent towards a certificate, he said the EA certificate showed the company had the capacity to offer total enterprise architecture solutions, including consultation and server design.

Last month, First Cambodia was named the largest systems integration company in the Kingdom by the International Data Group, the company announced in a press release, adding that their operations would begin expanding regionally.

"We have now opened First Laos, and we will open First Thailand and First Vietnam in the near future," the statement added.
