Infosys has launched a global centre to help enterprises migrate to Microsoft's cloud platform Azure, a statement said.

Infosys, with more than 1,500 Azure consultants, said it will continue to invest in deep skills and solutions across Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft 365 to drive business outcomes for clients.

The infotech firm, recognised as a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider (MSP), will also leverage Azure DevOps to help enterprises with complex application portfolios, varied architectures and technologies, it said.  Infosys currently enables digital transformation with Azure through a broad set of industry solutions and consulting services.

The launch of the migration centre comes after Microsoft on Thursday announced adding artificial intelligence (AI) and mixed-reality features to cloud business software Dynamics 365.

The Satya Nadella-led firm is invoking conservationism in an effort to lure more customers to its cloud business at a time when it is locked in a battle of supremacy with rivals Amazon Web Services and internet giant Google.

According to a Bloomberg report, the tech giant has said that it runs four popular applications in its cloud data centres that help the company reduce energy usage, in a sharp contrast to high power consumption of enterprises that run their own data centres.

Also, on Thursday, US-based IT services firm DXC Technology opened a migration centre in Bengaluru for Azure clients.

The factory will help Azure clients achieve faster, efficient and safer cloud migration, Edward Ho, executive vice-president at DXC, said in a statement.
