This week AWS & DXC announced a multi-year, global agreement to build a new multi-billion dollar DXC – AWS Integrated Practice that will deliver IT migration, application transformation, and business innovation to global Fortune 1000 clients.
“This 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.”
Specifically, these services include managed security and compliance services for AWS; dedicated VMware Cloud on AWS migration solutions and analytics and application services on AWS.
This is in addition to mission-critical support for SAP on AWS and DXC managed services for AWS underpinned by DXC Bionix, which is a digital generation services delivery model providing intelligent automation.
AWS CEO, Andy Jassy, said the agreement represents a commitment for both DXC and AWS in the market.
Such a commitment spans long-time and newer DXC clients, allowing the ability for customers to take advantage of the cloud with the most functionality, innovation, the largest partner ecosystem, and experience at helping companies run at scale.
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, take a more agile approach, and better adapt to dynamic market conditions with speed and at scale. All this while modernizing their operations for a digital era.
DXC clients are global enterprises looking to accelerate their digital transformations by migrating to AWS with DXC, leveraging the trusted relationships they have relied on for many years.
The new collaboration will focus on application migration, digital transformation, and industry-specific services that optimize DXC’s industry intellectual property (IP) running on AWS, the world’s leading cloud platform provider.
DXC is already a Premier partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and is an audited AWS managed service provider.
The technology giant retains more than 8,000 AWS business and technical professional accreditations and certifications, which is the most held by one company outside of AWS.
DXC also holds more than 900 AWS certifications including associate and professional level certifications, with plans to double that number in the next year, as part of the DXC AWS collaboration. Proving the certifications are key in the provision of the right level f technical support required for migration to AWS.
One of the enterprises first clients was Union Insurance Group, they designed policies for some 6,000 labour organizations. The group used DXC’s Integral product that covers the entire lifecycle from point of sale (POS) to claims, to payout using AWS, the company said.
DXC Technology’s business in Australia pulled in revenues of just over US$1.69 billion (A$2.26 billion) for the company’s financial year ending March 2018, rounding off a long period of acquisition and consolidation for the multinational IT services giant.
The latest figures, outlined in the US-headquartered company’s annual report for the year ending March, largely reflect the additional earnings the company has picked up since its merger with Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) Enterprise Services business.
