Noida, India – 16th December 2015 – HCL Technologies  (HCL), a leading global IT services company, announced today that it has been recognized as a Leader for Application Modernization Services for Digital Transformation by IDC in its recently published report, “IDC Marketscape: Worldwide Application Modernization Services for Digital Transformation 2015 Vendor Assessment, doc #US40641915, December 2015”.

The report evaluated 16 leading Technology Service providers in the application modernization services sector and mapped them on their Capabilities, Market Presence and Future Strategies in services geared towards transforming an organization’s existing business application(s) to newer, up-to-date technologies which enhance the application’s utility and value to its intended users and consumers. IDC MarketScape’s criteria selection, weightings and vendor scores, represent well-researched IDC judgments about the market and vendors through structured discussions, surveys and interviews with market leaders, participant service providers and end users.

“Organizations are hard at work modernizing their application portfolio to support digital business transformation. Many of these organizations face steep challenges in modernizing their applications themselves, and as a result, look to 3rd party service providers to guide and aid them in achieving their digital business objectives.” said Peter Marston, Research Manager, Application Development, Testing, and Management Services (ADTMS) program, IDC. “HCL possesses a balance of application modernization service capabilities, with particular strengths in migrating custom built applications to packaged applications and application instance consolidation.”

Vikram Duvvoori, Chief Technologist and Corporate Vice President for Enterprise Transformation Services, HCL Technologies, said “This is another important recognition further solidifying HCL’s leadership in the digital transformation and application modernization space. HCL has invested significantly in digitalization and modern applications and is committed to modernizing and transforming clients’ applications environment as they undertake end–to–end digitalization journey for business model transformation.”
IT modernization forms the core of client’s digital transformation initiatives. As clients undertake their digitalization journey, HCL’s Application Modernization practice enables large end–to–end technology and business transformation initiatives, rather than just modernizing, modifying or migrating applications. HCL operates through an ecosystem of technology partners, providing flexibility and transparency in services pricing, leveraging cloud ready architectures, agile methodologies and automation for delivering transformational modernization programs.
