Information technology (IT) services firm HCL Technologies has expanded its partnership with Google Cloud to bring its Digital Experience (DX) and Unica Marketing platforms to the cloud services provider.

DX’s cloud-native capabilities enables faster deployment of business critical solutions while integrated Unica marketing platform allows enterprises to support their precision marketing at scale, according to a statement.

“The collaboration between HCL Software and Google Cloud will deliver significant value for customers who want to deploy DX, Unica and Commerce from Google Cloud. With the support of our global implementation business partners, we can quickly deliver comprehensive experiences to any audience, putting our clients in the best position to deploy and scale with Google’s Cloud and HCL’s cloud-native solutions,” Darren Oberst, corporate vice president and head of HCL Software, said.

HCL DX is used by a range of organisations including financial services firms, healthcare providers and government agencies to provide digital experience across multiple channels both internally and externally. Its Digital Asset Manager (DAM) and developer toolkits can help organisations improve productivity and when integrated with Google’s Data Cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, DX solutions provide actionable insights to help organizations deliver relevant customer experiences, the statement said.

Unica is used by financial services firms, healthcare providers, retail, telecom, and government agencies to provide secure and personalized multichannel experiences. Point-and-click integrations from Unica Link and over 780 APIs simplify challenging integrations, drive business results quickly when run on Google Cloud.

“By bringing DX and Unica to Google Cloud, HCL Software can enrich these solutions with capabilities in AI, ML and analytics, and extend DX and Unica globally on our network. We’re excited to further expand our strategic partnership with HCL and look forward to supporting DX and Unica customers,” Avanish Sahai, vice president, ISV and application partners at Google Cloud, said.

In 2019, HCL and Google Cloud announced the launch of HCL’s Google Cloud Business Unit to accelerate enterprise cloud adoption worldwide. To support customers, HCL has established three dedicated Google Cloud Native Labs in New York, London and New Delhi.  These labs provide business-focused design workshops to engage customers, develop intellectual property (IP) and minimum viable products (MVPs) on Google Cloud across industries.
