Information technology services firm Tech Mahindra has launched a dedicated Google Cloud 'centre of excellence' (COE) to drive digital transformation solutions for enterprise customers globally.
The Pune-headquartered company said the partnership with Google will help it develop artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics solutions. The will also help Tech Mahindra improve workplace productivity and reduce cost, it said in a media statement.
“Our deep industry expertise and proven solutions that focus on seamless modernisation of infrastructure, applications and data to the cloud, combined with the power of Google Cloud will help accelerate the cloud journey for enterprises as they move towards a digital-first future," said Vivek Gupta, global head cloud services at Tech Mahindra.
The centre in Hyderabad will provide enterprises with access to the technology and services they need to expedite their cloud migration and deliver tailored solutions to help them move critical workloads to Google Cloud, the company said. The COE will offer its clients a full spectrum of cloud services, which will include consulting, assessment, optimisation and support services for enterprises looking to optimise their workloads on Google Cloud.
“The partnership will be able to provide our customers with secure, scalable and agile cloud-based digital platforms to scale their business and ease their migration to the cloud,” said Ash Willis, head of channels and alliances at Google Cloud in Asia Pacific.
Late last year, Noida-based IT services firm HCL Technologies had set up a dedicated Google Cloud Business Unit to accelerate enterprise cloud adoption and the company has around 1,300 employees trained on Google Cloud.
With a number of large enterprise customers embracing either Microsoft, Amazon Web Services or Google cloud for their digital transformation initiatives, the system integrators or the IT services firms are building dedicated divisions to address the growing demand. They also plan to move employees with specialised skills in using such platforms and technologies to these dedicated units. Last week, HCL had launched a dedicated business unit for Microsoft technologies too.
Early last month, Tech Mahindra, in partnership with the Telangana government, has opened a delivery centre in Warangal.
