HCL and DXC’s strategic partnership combines the extended ecosystems of both partners, to help customers with large IT infrastructure portfolios modernize their legacy environments.
HCL has a unique modernization approach to the sustenance of Solutions/IPs from DXC. This approach involves deconstructing complex legacy monolithic platforms, identifying functions to build APIs on and extracting logics and functionality.
A history of successful partnership
HCL and Hewlett Packard have been long-standing partners. Our journey started with a Joint Venture in 1991, enabling adoption of UNIX across the Banking industry, and later evolved to deliver world class solutions like EnsureIT – a single window for end-user management.
The HCL-CSC alliance started in 2013 with a joint solution for modernizing application portfolios. This later evolved into a strategic partnership in 2014, creating a world-class application modernization delivery network that enabled enterprises to shift from legacy technologies to a cloud-enabled platform. The Application Modernization Delivery Network (AMDN) enables enterprises to ‘reinvent their core”. The partnership has also helped customers in the insurance industry leverage their platforms better by providing resources and legacy capabilities in the areas of digitization and problem management.
In 2015, HCL and CSC came together to create a joint venture, “CeleritiFinTech” (CFT). This entity combined CSC’s world-class banking software and HCL’s expertise in product engineering and application implementation. CeleritiFinTech adopts a pragmatic approach to modernization, and focuses on delivering differentiated customer experiences, product innovation and digital and cloud-based technology transformation, while utilizing analytics and big data, achieving regulatory compliance, and driving cost reduction.
The partnership has helped drive 30% reduction in legacy and maintenance costs and delivered the fastest returns on transformation investments by over 40%.
