Mid-tier information technology (IT) services firm Birlasoft has entered into a partnership with Houston-based software firm Riversand to offer cloud-native master data management (MDM) and product information management (PIM) solutions. 

As part of the collaboration, Birlasoft will serve as an implementation partner for Riversand’s Master Data Experience (MDxP) platform, according to a statement. 

“Riversand’s cloud-native and multi-domain platform is essential for any company considering investing in a scalable infrastructure that can meet the demands of an ever-changing market. Riversand excels in leveraging data to provide better experiences to customers and that is why we are partnering with this market leader,” Baljeet Chhazal, executive vice president and global head of integrated enterprise solutions at Birlasoft, said. 

The partnership is expected to help Birlasoft strengthen its master data management competency across manufacturing, life sciences, energy and utilities, as well as banking and financial services industries. 

“Today, businesses are looking for data-driven digital transformation and this alliance will offer the combined strengths of both partners to customers looking to implement a successful digital transformation strategy,” Raman Parthasarthy, senior vice president of strategy and business development at Riversand, said. 

Riversand’s MDxP platform enables customers to leverage their data through insights, automation, and multi-domain software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions. It acts as an engine that powers customers’ digital transformation journeys through improved business agility, faster adoption, and improved collaboration across the enterprise, the company claims. 

Pune-based Birlasoft is part of the multibillion-dollar diversified CK Birla Group. The company currently has over 10,000 employees. 

In August last year, the mid-tier IT services firm announced it has partnered with Microsoft to drive its customers’ cloud-based digital transformation journeys. The cloud alliance allowed Birlasoft to use Microsoft Azure to boost its digital offering, while scaling its Microsoft cloud business to $100 million by focusing on delivering end-to-end services on Azure and the Microsoft 365 platforms. 

In July 2020, Birlasoft partnered with Innoveo, a technology software provider, to strengthen its domain and digital capabilities.   

It signed a $240 million deal with medical device manufacturer Invacare in 2019 for its digital transformation initiative.
