Infosys Extends Alliance With Microsoft for Cloud-Based Digital Transformation Solutions

Infosys (NYSE: INFY), a global leader in consulting, technology and next-generation services, today announced an expansion of its relationship with Microsoft to accelerate the digital transformation of enterprise clients. Infosys has launched a new Microsoft Cloud Business Unit that will focus on the comprehensive cloud needs of enterprises – from infrastructure to business applications.

The Microsoft Cloud Business Unit at Infosys will consist of a central pool of trained consultants, architects and specialist sales team that will be aligned to four core solution areas – Modern Workplace, Business Applications, Application Development & Infrastructure and Data & Analytics. The new unit is chartered to develop and deliver integrated experiences, solutions and services spanning Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Office 365, Windows 10 and Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Infosys currently provides a broad set of industry solutions leveraging Dynamics 365 and other Microsoft Cloud services for customers across sectors, including Financial Services, Retail and CPG, Communications, Oil and Gas, and Life Sciences. Further, Infosys delivers a spectrum of technology solutions to help customers migrate to the Microsoft Cloud, derive deep insights from existing hybrid environments and harness intelligence for automation. Building on the current collaboration, Infosys and Microsoft have concluded a strategic Cloud Solution Provider Agreement (CSP) that enables Infosys to directly manage the entire lifecycle for its enterprise customers including billing and support, and deliver integrated end-to-end solutions as a managed service on Microsoft Cloud.

As part of this enhanced alliance, Infosys will also establish a global Microsoft Cloud Innovation Center in the US, which will act as a forum to help enterprise clients utilize the power of Microsoft Cloud. The Center will enable incubation, co-innovation and proliferation of solutions leveraging Microsoft Cloud services.
