Indian software services provider Tech Mahindra has signed a memorandum of understanding with Japanese e-commerce company Rakuten's no-code mobile-app creator Aquafadas. Under the collaboration, both aim to transform content-deployment technologies across multiple screens.
“Our collaboration with France-based Rakuten Aquafadas will help us further drive innovation in the artificial intelligence, machine learning, and digital transformation spaces, and enable us to enhance customer experience from the forefront,” said Manish Vyas, global president of Tech Mahindra’s communications, media and entertainment business.
He added that the upcoming 5G deployment will also provide a fillip to the adoption of newer technologies in most industry verticals.
The development follows a slew of recent moves made by Tech Mahindra.
Last month, Tech Mahindra and New York-based robotic process automation (RPA) specialist UiPath jointly launched an artificial intelligence-driven automation solution for service desk operations at enterprises.
A service desk is a communications centre that provides a single point of contact between a company and its customers, employees and business partners.
In the same month, Tech Mahindra had announced a collaboration with San Francisco-headquartered data security startup i2Chain to build a blockchain-based cybersecurity solution to help enterprises transact securely and comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.
Tech Mahindra had also partnered with fellow IT services firm Samsung SDS, a unit of South Korean electronics giant Samsung, to develop and provide blockchain solutions.
According to the terms of the partnership, Tech Mahindra will offer Samsung SDS's blockchain platform Nexledger to both its global and Indian customers.
