Noida-based IT major HCL Technologies has signed a five-year digital transformation deal with US-based MKS Instruments.

MKS is a provider of instruments, systems, subsystems and solutions for advanced manufacturing processes.  

“End users will benefit from a seamless digital experience with access to smarter and better processes and systems,” Ajay Bahl, executive vice president, HCL Technologies, said.

As part of the deal, HCL will drive the digital and cloud-based transformation for MKS utilising automation through artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions.

HCL will also provide end-to-end infrastructure services, digital workplace services and IT transformation. 

MKS Instruments has its presence in 60 countries and its employees will now be able to utilise HCLs global delivery centers, along with its frameworks and IT tools.

“MKS Instruments looks forward to partnering with HCL to enhance its end-user experience by automating operations and migrating us toward a hybrid cloud journey,” Connie Flynn, Chief Information Officer, MKS Instruments, said.

MKS Instruments, founded in 1961, has 5,400 employees worldwide, with a market capitalisation of close to $11 billion. 60% of the company’s sales are from its semiconductor portfolio.  

Last week, HCL partnered with software vendor for the financial services industry, Finastra, to drive digital transformation deals in South Korea and Taiwan.    

As part of the partnership, HCL will offer Finastra’s strategic products – Fusion Cash Management and Fusion Summit – in the region.   

Earlier this month, HCL also launched a dedicated HCL Cisco ecosystem unit focused on creating solutions to accelerate clients’ digital journeys.  

“It will aim to ensure the success of complex transformation programs around network-as-a-service, digital workplace, multi-cloud modernization, hyper-automation, security, private 5G and telco modernisation,” HCL said in a statement.
