Global information technology (IT) services major HCL Technologies has signed a five-year contract with European aerospace and defence giant Airbus, a statement said on Thursday.

Under the agreement, the Noida headquartered company said that it will set up a modernised digital workplace to provide an enhanced remote working experience and service quality for Airbus employees around the world.

HCL will leverage its Fluid Workplace Model to help Airbus deploy the latest digital technologies, the statement said. It will also simplify the Leiden, Netherlands headquartered company’s existing IT processes and optimise delivery costs using unique end-to-end management services.

According to the statement, the IT firm will offer Airbus standard functionality and innovation capabilities to generate greater efficiency and time to market. 

The partnership with Airbus comes a day after HCL announced a global strategic alliance with Alteryx, an Irvine, California-based software company that offers analytic process automation (APA).

HCL said that the engagement, which includes joint go to market activities, a scaled competency on Alteryx within HCL, and HCL’s ability to act as a value-added reseller of Alteryx solutions, will help clients accelerate their analytics automation and digital transformation efforts.

“HCL’s blueprint for automation and their deep digital transformation expertise, combined with Alteryx automation and our unprecedented ease-of-use will super-charge the priority initiatives across global enterprises,” Mark Anderson, CEO of Alteryx, said.
