HCL- DXC Partnership


"HCL is proud to be part of DXC’s premier strategic partner program. HCL and DXC are collaborating on modernizing Banking, Insurance and other legacy environments thereby enabling our customers to embrace the technology of the future.”

-C Vijayakumar,  CEO,  HCL Technologies Ltd

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 and solve complex business problems. The partnership, built around HCL’s core engineering capabilities, is working with some of the largest organizations in the Financial Services industry. HCL has a unique modernisation 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. Through this, we help integrate multiple platforms/apps to deliver unified customer journeys and improve customer experience as well as efficiency through dual facing apps.


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”, by managing and transforming large application portfolios. 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 to deliver reliable and innovative offerings to our clients. 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. It seeks to deliver software services that help global clients extend investments in existing platforms and implement innovative solutions.

The partnership has helped drive an almost 30% reduction in legacy and maintenance costs across multiple and diverse IT landscapes, and delivered the fastest returns on transformation investments, in many cases, by over 40%.
