Bengaluru-based information technology services provider Infosys has signed a deal with technology giant Microsoft to formulate and execute the digital transformation strategy of Manila, Indonesia-based business conglomerate JG Summit Holdings.
Infosys will serve as the technology services partner to JG Summit Holdings, said a joint statement issued by Infosys and Microsoft.
Infosys will help JG Summit Holdings implement and migrate to Microsoft Azure’s open, hyper-scale cloud platform along with SAP S/4 HANA, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, the statement said.
Infosys will use a hybrid IT management platform called the Infrastructure Management Solution Suite to facilitate the digital transformation project. The platform will allow Infosys to adopt and govern cloud environments such as Microsoft Azure.
Infosys will also deploy its learning solution Wingspan to facilitate the upskilling of the employees of JG Summit Holdings.
“Many companies don’t realize that the opportunity cost of not embracing digital technologies like Cloud is a steep decline in productivity and revenue. JG Summit, with Infosys and Microsoft, will have a clear strategy and a strong roadmap which will enable them to continually develop their unique capabilities, value for customers and maintain a competitive advantage in a digital-first world,” said Ricky Kapur, vice president, sales, marketing and operations, Microsoft Asia-Pacific.
JG Summit Holdings has business interests in various sectors such as air transportation, banking, food manufacturing, hotels, petrochemicals, power generation, publishing, real estate and telecommunications.

That same month, Missouri-based software services provider Amdocs said it will partner with Microsoft to provide cloud solutions for communication service providers.
