Mid-tier information technology (IT) services company Larsen & Toubro Infotech (LTI) has expanded its collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS).  

As part of the partnership, LTI will build accelerators and create industry-focused cloud offerings for the banking and financial services, manufacturing, retail & CPG, media & entertainment, hi-tech, and insurance sectors, according to a statement.

The new collaboration expands a recent partnership where LTI launched a dedicated cloud unit for AWS which focuses on migration and modernization, SAP application workloads, data analytics, and Internet of things (IoT), complemented by LTI’s advisory, professional services, and delivery capabilities.

“Enterprises are seeking speed and efficiency as they adopt cloud services to gain competitive advantages and improve customer engagement. The collaboration with AWS will help us achieve these objectives and accelerate our services and solutions to build, migrate, manage, operate, and optimize AWS environments and infrastructure of our clients,” Sanjay Jalona, CEO and managing director, LTI said.

LTI said it has made significant investment to build AWS expertise, having attained AWS competencies for DevOps, migration, data and analytics, financial services, machine learning, Microsoft workloads, and SAP.

“Through this collaboration, LTI will expand their AWS practice to serve global customers as they look to leverage AWS services to accelerate their digital transformation, innovate at a faster pace, and solve the most challenging business problems," said Doug Yeum, head of global partner organization at AWS.

In June 2020, LTI announced a programme where customers who use SAP tools could accelerate their migration from on-premise systems to AWS cloud.

LTI became an advanced consulting partner with the AWS partner network (APN) in 2017. It has achieved the AWS SAP competency status, which certifies the company for successfully migrating SAP environments to AWS.

In May, LIT launched partner ServiceNow’s software-based Operational Technology Management solution for the manufacturing industry.

Earlier this month, LTI was signed on by pan-European financial services firm Hoist Finance to provide banking-as-a-service for the latter’s performing loans segment.

In February, LTI had announced a strategic partnership with Perth, Australia-based business solutions provider DyFlex Solutions, wherein the companies would work together to offer an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to companies operating in the engineering, construction, and operations (EC&O) industries.
