Global technologies, local knowledge
World Wide Technology (WWT) is a technology solution provider focused on driving real business value for our clients. By mapping the journey from the initial innovative idea to a profitable outcome, WWT delivers game-changing solutions by decreasing risk and significantly accelerating time-to-solution.
We use a proven and innovative approach to help large public and private organisations discover, evaluate, architect and implement advanced technologies.
Founded in 1990, WWT has grown from a small product reseller into a technology solution provider with more than $11 billion in annual revenue and over 5,000 employees. We serve the technology needs of large public and private sector organisations around the globe, including many of the world’s best-known brands.
Since expanding our global footprint into the UK and Ireland in2012, WWT has quickly established itself as a go-to technology integrator for large institutions within the region. WWT’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC), accessible from anywhere in the word, is a physical campus housing labs that are used for product demonstrations, proofs of concept, building reference architectures and so much more. These labs have been virtualised and made accessible to our customers, partners and employees around the world via our proprietary cloud portal.
Our dedicated UK team consists of ex-industry solution architects, specialist engineers, application developers, software consultants and client directors all with a wealth of experience from across a multitude of verticals, including Financial Services, Pharmaceutical, Manufacturing and Retail.
When technology vendors talk to customers about improving their IT capabilities, they often describe it as a “journey” to the cloud or to some elevated state of technological nirvana. But at WWT, we understand infrastructure modernisation is more than a journey. It’s an evolutionary process of transformation, driven by a unifying concept: integration. Integration is the glue that holds together the IT Infrastructure of the Future.
Tomorrow’s infrastructure is taking form in real time in WWT’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC). Our ATC provides a collaborative ecosystem for education, and helps our customers to design, build, demonstrate and deploy innovative technology products and integrated architectural solutions. Clients in a range of industries rely on our ATC as a platform to build customised integrations to meet their specialised business demands.
Enterprise technology is undergoing an evolution. It no longer just supports the core business – it IS the core business. As a result, businesses are placing new demands on IT that requires increased agility and flexibility to deliver the best possible solutions for their organisation’s customers and employees. As IT’s role becomes more and more strategic, organisations are looking to the cloud as a way to address these demands.
WWT’s cloud practice takes an application-centric approach. We believe an organisation’s cloud journey starts with choosing the right business value-focused applications to build or migrate to, and then designing and creating the environment accordingly. As a result, we focus as much on the organisational change aspects of cloud implementation as on the technological ones.
Our approach to a multicloud architecture is built on our expertise with security, software development and big data – as well as on our experience in working with a variety of hybrid cloud vendors. This keeps the focus on business outcomes and provides our customers with a trusted partner for their journey to the cloud.
Online threats are becoming increasingly complex, and so are the technologies needed to combat them. Working closely with our partners, we help our customers stay ahead of such threats. Our innovative approach to threat management and security transformation considers readiness, awareness, defence, analytics and response. We build these solutions on the foundation of our proprietary cybersecurity reference architecture.
Our customers benefit from collaborating with WWT’s team of former CISOs, CIOs, security analysts, architects and engineers. These industry-certified professionals work first to understand the key goals and objectives of our customers, then set up rigorous test environments through our ATC to compare and verify the industry’s most appropriate solution for the business challenge at hand.
By applying a consultative and architectural approach, we help our customers develop and execute projects that establish awareness, optimise defence capabilities, improve threat response, mitigate breaches and close compliance gaps.
Business today moves at the speed of thought. The best time to launch a digital transformation initiative was yesterday. While IT is focused on modernising, automating and accelerating delivery; business leadership aims to enable new revenue channels, optimise the workforce and improve customer satisfaction. WWT helps with both, through our merging of business- and technology-focused digital strategy resources and our ability to scale software and hardware solution delivery. These provide us with unparalleled capabilities for planning, enabling and executing 360-degree digital transformation.
At WWT, we bring together the knowledge of a software company with the deep heritage of our hardware solutions, allowing us to assess and improve every aspect of the digital transformation journey. Here are just a few of the solutions we’ve worked on – and our list is continually growing.
