IT major Infosys announced an expansion of its relationship with Microsoft to accelerate the digital transformation of enterprise clients. Infosys has launched a new Microsoft Cloud Business Unit that will focus on the comprehensive cloud needs of enterprises – from infrastructure to business applications.
The unit at Infosys will consist of a central pool of trained consultants, architects and specialist sales team that will be aligned to four core solution areas – modern workplace, business applications, application development & infrastructure and data & analytics.
Our newly formed Microsoft Cloud Business Unit will help to synergise best-in-class capabilities, and our investments across Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365, and Microsoft Dynamics 365 will support in orchestrating differentiated solutions,” said Ravi Kumar S, President and Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Infosys.
As part of this enhanced alliance, Infosys said it will also establish a global Microsoft Cloud Innovation Centre in the US, which will act as a forum to help enterprise clients utilise the power of Microsoft Cloud.
Over the past six months, Infosys and Microsoft teams have worked closely to organise multiple events and hackathons aimed at developing new solution ideas, and providing a wide cross-section of Infosys employees with hands-on experience in deploying Microsoft Cloud solutions and services.
