Chinese telecom and network solutions provider Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd is partnering with Indian IT services firm Infosys Ltd to drive cloud adoption among enterprise customers.
The companies said in a joint statement that they have signed a memorandum of understanding that will see Infosys join Huawei's cloud partner network (HCPN).
According to data from last year, HCPN has a total of 6,000 partners and has collaborated to add 2,800 applications which are available in Asia Pacific, China, Russia and South Africa.
"We hope to further expand the HCPN partner ecosystem by identifying and developing partners such as Infosys with deep consulting expertise. Through our collaboration, we will ensure smooth project delivery, optimize operational costs, reduce transformational risks and create business value for our clients,” said Edward Deng, president of Huawei Cloud.
As part of the agreement, the companies will also develop new cloud solutions leveraging their own products and services to help customers securely adopt cloud-based systems for their enterprise workloads.
Ravi Kumar S, president at Infosys, said the partnership is aimed at helping clients accelerate their cloud transition journey.
"As part of this engagement, we will provide a suite of technologies hosted on Huawei Cloud, such as workload migration solutions including SAP and other enterprise workloads,” he added.
The Infosys-Huawei agreement comes just a week after Indian IT services provider HCL Technologies Ltd said it was partnering with Google's cloud division to enable hybrid cloud services, containerisation and microservices architecture deliveries for enterprises and independent software vendors.
HCL said the partnership with Google was aimed at helping customers accelerate their cloud journey. “The winning combination of Google Cloud Platform and HCL’s managed services and engineering expertise will be a major enabler for the digital businesses of tomorrow,” Kalyan Kumar, corporate vice president and chief technology officer for IT services at HCL Technologies, had said.
