Homegrown IT services firm Infosys is partnering with multinational giant HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise) to offer a 'pay as you go' model for its enterprise customers who are looking to accelerate their digital transformation.

As part of the agreement, Infosys said in a statement that it will use HPE's GreenLake consumption model. According to HPE, GreenLake focusses on outcome-based consumption, while radically simplifying IT and freeing up resources. It also works for both public and private cloud, it added.

The GreenLake model consists of services such as backup, databases, big data, infrastructure, containers, storage, compute, HPC and Edge. It is also compatible with Microsoft's Azure stack and SAP HANA.

“Enterprises today are looking at optimising their hybrid IT investments and accelerating their digital initiatives,” said Narsimha Rao Mannepalli, executive vice president and head of cloud & infrastructure solutions service at Infosys.

“Our partnership with HPE will provide enterprises a compelling value proposition of a consumption-based IT model and the comfort of managed services,” he added.

The partnership is expected to help enterprises make smart infrastructure investments, paying for what they consume, while benefiting from the security offered by a trusted managed services provider.

Clients will also benefit by having a secure private cloud and the advantages of economics and flexibility that exists in public cloud, the companies added. In addition, this will help enterprises accelerate their hybrid cloud transformation providing them increased agility and reduced total cost of ownership.

Infosys’ cloud applications development unit, Edgeverve, had said earlier this week that it had taken a step towards negating human bias in process automation with the launch of a new enterprise tool called AssistEdge Discover.

Infosys also released a global research paper this week which said that legacy systems are the single-largest obstacle facing enterprises in their digital transformation initiatives for 2019.
