HCL Technologies (HCL) and VMware have launched HCL’s dedicated VMware business unit to help enterprises unlock the untapped value of multicloud and application innovation.
The new unit combines the power of HCL’s CloudSMART Framework with VMware’s Cross-Cloud Services to help enterprises accelerate cloud transformation, scale cloud-based platform operations, and empower hybrid workforces.
HCL’s new VMware business unit is part of the Strategic Alliance Partner Ecosystem, which provides multi-cloud and application innovation solutions using the CloudSMART Framework. HCL will help enterprises navigate the path to digital dominance by leveraging the cloud freedom and enterprise control offered by VMware products and services to align transformation with overall business objectives.
Anand Swamy, Senior Vice President, Technology OEM Ecosystem, HCL Technologies, said, “We believe that in a macroeconomic environment, ecosystems must work together to deliver the innovative and effective solutions the industry needs.” “Our new VMware business unit leverages the collaboration between HCL and VMware to create, build and deliver innovative, customized cloud implementation strategies with the CloudSMART approach as the foundation.”
Zia Yusuf, senior vice president of strategic ecosystem and industry solutions at VMware, said: “Today, we witness the unstoppable power of digital transformation in nearly every industry, and VMware provides a solid foundation for accelerating customer innovation.
“With HCL, we’re helping our mutual customers by providing the most intelligent path to app, cloud and edge updates, creating a more secure and frictionless experience for a distributed workforce. VMware preserves customer choice and prevents lock-in through multiple cloud services that offer businesses the freedom and flexibility they need to build the future.”
Over the past 14 years, HCL and VMware have achieved successful customer outcomes with services and solutions built for the modern enterprise. HCL has more than 8,000 professionals trained in VMware technology, manages three VMware centers of excellence and has created four cloud-based laboratories.
