Michiel Eielts, Managing Director Equinix Benelux: “As a global player, Equinix bears responsibility for its environment at numerous locations throughout the world. The transfer of knowledge is a human process, which therefore promotes equal relationships both within and beyond an organisation. Growth can only be achieved on the basis of cooperation, trust and a certain level of quality. As a firm, we are keen to contribute to this process by providing the particular IT knowledge possessed by experienced experts. In collaborating with PUM, our aim is to establish a targeted and professional approach, which significantly contributes to lasting results that truly enable people to get ahead.”

Johan van the Gronden, CEO PUM Netherlands senior experts: “Our collaboration with Equinix could prove highly beneficial to our clients. After all, it offers them access to a vast network, while also assuring us of state-of-the-art expertise in a field which continues to develop extremely rapidly. To this very day, many parties are inclined to view development cooperation from the classical perspective. However, businesses in emerging economies often skip a few steps in their leap forward. Digitalisation offers huge opportunities. And PUM therefore seeks to forge relations with the front runners in the Dutch It industry.”
