Indian IT services provider Infosys has inked a deal with Huawei Technologies in order to bring cloud computing and big data services to its enterprise customers.
According to an announcement by the companies on Thursday, the agreement will see Infosys and Huawei jointly develop cloud, big data and communication solutions that bring together Huawei’s cloud infrastructure with Infosys’ service expertise.
The partnership comes as Huawei has committed to growing its revenue in the enterprise space. In March, Huawei set its sights on $10 billion in revenue from its enterprise division by 2017, indicating that cloud computing partnerships would help it achieve this goal.
Huawei and Infosys will build reference architectures for big data platforms on Huawei infrastructure for joint go-to-market efforts, according to a statement. Huawei’s customer contact technologies will also be integrated with communication services from Infosys. The companies will set up a joint lab in China to “enable better delivery in all areas of the partnership.”
“Infosys is focused on helping customers succeed with software and services to both grow their business in new ways and to achieve operational efficiencies,” Infosys CEO Dr. Vishal Sikka said. “We are really excited to partner with Huawei to bring the power of Huawei’s cloud infrastructure and communication technologies to our joint customers, so that they can efficiently achieve this dual objective.”
Infosys also announced extended partnership agreements with Microsoft and Hitachi to help enterprise customers migrate to Microsoft Azure public cloud and offer Hitachi data center transformation solutions, respectively.
Targeting the enterprise cloud opportunity has brought many companies together to develop joint solutions. Recently, IBM and Apple joined forces to develop mobile and cloud solutions for enterprises.
