The offerings include cloud strategy planning, application transformation, cloud-native cultural transformation, proof of concept building, and next-generation cloud-native software development services – all of which are being extended to include the IBM Cloud offerings.    Additionally, HCL will offer services to help migrate ISV solutions to IBM Cloud. Finally, HCL and IBM plan to collaborate to assist clients in building joint solutions that include IBM AI capabilities.    HCL CTO Kalyan Kuma says, “HCL will provide the necessary services to enable a customer’s cloud-native journey covering portfolio assessment, platform design/build, applications transformation, software engineering, and platform operations, which makes this collaboration significant.

“The HCL teams will now help customers to understand the Art of the Possible, and see where ICP / IBM hybrid cloud can enable their cloud-native journey.’

“The HCL Cloud Native Labs would become a single location where the complete IBM tooling and methodologies come together and offer the customer a unified cloud enablement journey based on the full set of IBM capabilities.”
