Stockholm-based outdoor power products maker Husqvarna Group has inked a deal with mid-tier information technology (IT) services firm Mindtree to accelerate its digital transformation initiatives. 

As part of the partnership with Husqvarna Group’s German division Gardena, the Bengaluru headquartered firm will help the manufacturer gain clarity into its operations, improve service and product offerings across sales and service channels, and optimise its supply chain, according to a statement.

Additionally, Mindtree will apply agile and DevOps concepts to help the company develop and deploy SAP applications at a faster rate to meet business demands, it said.

“Our unique product IT operating approach will help to accelerate Husqvarna’s product lifecycle – from ideation to development to release – enabling the business meet customer demand more effectively,” Debashis Chatterjee, CEO and managing director of Mindtree, said. 

Mindtree recently reported a 130% increase in quarterly profits on the back of what the company described as a healthy order book, despite headwinds caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

There have been several digital transformation deals in the recent past, as companies look to cope with the impact of the Covid-19 crisis.

Last week, IT services firm Infosys signed a multi-year partnership deal with American investment management firm Vanguard to digitally transform the financial services firm’s defined contribution (DC) recordkeeping business. 

Last month, Bengaluru-based technology giant Wipro forged a multi-year infrastructure modernisation and digital transformation partnership with German energy company E.ON. 

Around the same time, Tata Consultancy Services remotely deployed its DynaPORT solution at the Mundra shipping terminal of Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) to help the shipyard automate and optimise operations. 

Food chain KFC also signed on Bengaluru-based artificial intelligence and analytics solutions provider Manthan to power its Canada unit’s digital transformation journey.
