Digital services and consulting provider Infosys
and cloud giant Google have strengthened their strategic partnership. Infosys, which has headquarters in Bangalore, Karnataka, India, was established in 1981. The company bills itself as “a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting” and provides services to customers in 45 countries. It prides itself on guiding customers through their digital transition and offers expertise in a broad range of areas. Alongside IT solutions and consulting, these include cloud services, Artificial Intelligence (AI) options and Big Data solutions. Its partnership with Google Cloud is designed to accelerate customers’ “digital transformation”.
Infosys has become a Google Cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP). The MSP initiative provides a network of potential providers who have met Google’s requirements and can “deliver certified expertise, more flexibility, cost savings, and reduced time to market to their customers.'' To achieve this status, companies have to submit to rigorous third-party audits to verify their capabilities in terms of managing, monitoring, and optimizing workloads. Infosys will offer “industry-specific solutions on GCP” with solutions for “healthcare, financial services, insurance, telecom and retail industries”.
“Cloud has been a key focus area for our clients and Infosys, and we continue to invest in new solutions, partnerships and offerings to enable our clients to navigate their digital transformation journeys,” explained Senior Vice President and Head Infosys Partner Ecosystem, David Wilson. “This enhanced partnership with Google Cloud is an example of how we are helping enterprises as they look to the cloud for digital transformation. Enterprises will significantly benefit from the best in class, highly secure and reliable cloud platform of Google Cloud and Infosys’ expertise in data, AI, analytics, workload migration and cloud deployments.”
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with Infosys and to recognize their expertise in managed services,” added Google Cloud’s Vice President, Worldwide Channel Sales, Carolee Gearhart. “Customers increasingly want to move mission-critical workloads to Google Cloud. Infosys’ experience and knowledge in cloud migration, particularly with priority workloads such as SAP applications and in hybrid cloud deployments, will be a valuable resource for customers as they modernize business processes on Google Cloud.”Do you know of any other companies achieving Google Cloud Managed Service Provider status?
