DXC Technologies and Amazon Web Services are joining forces to build a new multi-billion dollar enterprise dubbed DXC-AWS Integrated Practice that will deliver IT migration services to clients around the world, the two companies announced on Tuesday.
“Today’s agreement combines DXC’s deep expertise in enterprise services and industry-specific IP with the power of the AWS cloud to speed our clients’ digital transformations,” said Mike Lawrie, chairman, president and CEO, of DXC Technology in a statement. “In addition to driving new levels of performance and productivity, clients will realize cost savings that can be reinvested in game-changing digital technologies that benefit their customers, employees, and all stakeholders.”
The DXC - AWS Integrated Practice will offer clients secure, cloud-first solutions that combine the breadth and depth of cloud services offered through AWS with DXC enterprise services to enable them to innovate in their industries, be more agile, and better adapt to dynamic market conditions with speed and at scale -- while also modernizing their operations for a digital era.
"For many years, successful enterprises have relied on DXC's expertise to manage their IT," said AWS CEO Andy Jassy in a statement. "This agreement represents a commitment for both DXC and AWS to make it much easier to enable long-time and newer DXC clients to take advantage of the Cloud with the most functionality, the most innovation, the largest partner ecosystem, and the most experience at helping companies run at scale—all of which allows customers to access the best set of capabilities to evolve and differentiate their customer experience."
One of enterprises first clients is Union Insurance Group, which designed policies for some 6,000 labor organizations. The group used DXC’s Integral product that covers the entire lifecycle from point of sale to claims to payout using AWS, the companies said.
DXC-AWS Integrated Practice will initially focus on managed security and compliance services for AWS, dedicated VMware Cloud on AWS migration solution, analytics services on AWS, application services for AWS, and mission critical support for SAP on AWS.
