While building competency in Rockwell Automation manufacturing execution systems (MES) and solutions, HCL will help manufacturers build successful, plant-wide information applications using the FactoryTalk® integrated production and performance software suite.

The ESP program, established by Rockwell Automation in 2006, provides manufacturers with a resource-rich network of information systems professionals to help drive better manufacturing performance by integrating enterprise resource planning (ERP) and plant-floor control and information systems. Working with recognized Enterprise Solution Partners, companies can lower the risk and increase the potential success of MES applications. The FactoryTalk Enterprise Solution Partner Program is part of the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetworkTM, which includes business enterprise, sales and solutions, product and technology partners.

"Integration of control and information environments continues to be strategically imperative at most manufacturing companies," said Ralph Carter, president, Rockwell Software, Rockwell Automation. "Our ESP program gives manufacturers in many industries the resources they need to make integration efforts successful."

"We are excited about this emerging relationship with HCL," said Bob Honor, vice president, sales, Rockwell Automation. "HCL brings the right depth in domain experience across manufacturing and IT necessary for us to deliver value to our customers."

"We are excited to extend our existing IT relationship with Rockwell Automation to jointly offer solutions to the market. This new program complements that objective and our investments in manufacturing," said Shami Khorana, president of HCL's North America Operations.

"Manufacturers worldwide are under increasing pressure to gain better insight into their manufacturing operations and increase their overall competitiveness," added Sandeep Kishore, SVP, head, global manufacturing business, HCL. "The solutions to be jointly delivered by HCL and Rockwell Automation will allow better business decisions across the manufacturing organization and their entire supply chain."

During the past several years, HCL has been aggressively expanding the depth and breadth of its service offerings. The company has made strategic investments in industry-specific capabilities and solutions and forged strategic relationships with several core Manufacturing Services industry leaders. This relationship furthers HCL's commitment to excellence in this sector.
