Bengaluru-based information technology (IT) services company Mindtree has signed a five-year contract with Gothenburg-based medical device manufacturer Mölnlycke Health Care to migrate the latter’s on-premises SAP applications to Microsoft Azure. 

Mindtree will also help the healthcare giant accelerate towards a platform-led DevSecOps operating model, which would ensure better and faster IT functions, a statement said.

“Our goal has always been to improve healthcare outcomes, and we recognise the importance of digital transformation and moving more of our business to the cloud in that mission,” Daniel Frick, vice president of IT at Mölnlycke, said. 

As part of the deal, Mindtree will support and operate the SAP landscape of Mölnlycke through automation and process transformation, utilising its platform-led operating model as well as automating the testing process to ensure faster system releases. 

“This transformation to a platform-led operating model will ensure Mölnlycke’s processes remain secure and compliant with industry regulations,” Venu Lambu, president of global markets at Mindtree, said.

“The partnership also expands Mindtree’s presence in the Nordic region and strengthens its position in the European market,” Lambu added.
