Heads in the Tech Cloud

Tech Mahindra Ltd will collaborate with IBM to help businesses transform their operations and accelerate their hybrid cloud strategies. Tech Mahindra will help clients migrate core business applications to the IBM public cloud using IBM Cloud Paks.

As part of the relationship, IBM and Tech Mahindra will establish innovation centres to address complex business problems across industries, including telecommunication, manufacturing, financial services, insurance, retail and healthcare.

The first centre, planned to open in Bengaluru later this year, will specialise in transformation solutions built with IBM Cloud Paks, enterprise-ready containerised software solutions running on Red Hat OpenShift. Tech Mahindra currently plans to open additional centres throughout North America and the the United Kingdom in 2020.

Pawan Sharma, President & Global Head of Strategic Initiatives at Tech Mahindra, said “The collaboration with IBM will help us accelerate the development of cloud-based applications for our customers and build multi-cloud data management solutions on the industry-leading hybrid platform. The commitment to building innovation centres aligns with our TechMNxt charter, an initiative that leverages emerging technology to solve real-world business problems for customers.”

Tech Mahindra is the latest company to join the IBM public cloud ecosystem, the industry’s most open and secure public cloud for business. With its security leadership, enterprise-grade capabilities and support for open source technologies, the IBM public cloud is designed to differentiate and extend on hybrid cloud capabilities for enterprise workloads.

Commenting about the partnership, Bob Lord, SVP, Cognitive Applications, Blockchain and Ecosystems, IBM, “This collaboration with Tech Mahindra is designed to help businesses migrate critical enterprise workloads to the IBM public cloud and transform their operations using cloud-native technologies.”

Tech Mahindra aims to help clients build scalable, cloud-native applications that can help address the most critical data and workload. Tech Mahindra’s technologists can also assist Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to develop network automation solutions, IT infrastructure and application modernization, further helping clients shift complex and mission-critical enterprise workloads to the IBM public cloud.
