DXC and AWS announce strategic partnership

08 Aug 2018

DXC Technology and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have forged a multi-year, global agreement to build a new multi-billion dollar DXC - AWS integrated practice that will deliver IT migration, application transformation, and business innovation to global Fortune 1000 clients.

The new collaboration will focus on application migration, digital transformation, and industry-specific services that optimise DXC's industry intellectual property (IP) running on AWS.

In a release, AWS says that this is a direct response to growing client demand for integrated, highly-secure, industry-based solutions that leverage the advanced cloud technologies, reliability, scale, and pace of innovation of AWS.

The agreement also encompasses joint development, marketing, sales, and delivery of AWS solutions.

"Today's agreement combines DXC's deep expertise in enterprise services and industry-specific IP with the power of the AWS cloud to speed our clients' digital transformations," says DXC Technology chairman, president and CEO Mike Lawrie.

"In addition to driving new levels of performance and productivity, clients will realise cost savings that can be reinvested in game-changing digital technologies that benefit their customers, employees, and all stakeholders."

The DXC - AWS Integrated Practice will work to optimise DXC's AWS offerings, with an initial focus on:

  • Managed security and compliance services
  • A dedicated VMware Cloud migration solution
  • Analytics services
  • Application services
  • Mission critical support for SAP

"For many years, successful enterprises have relied on DXC's expertise to manage their IT," says AWS CEO Andy Jassy.

"This agreement represents a commitment for both DXC and AWS to make it much easier to enable long-time and newer DXC clients to take advantage of the Cloud with the most functionality, the most innovation, the largest partner ecosystem, and the most experience at helping companies run at scale - all of which allows customers to access the best set of capabilities to evolve and differentiate their customer experience."
