HCL announced new re-platforming and refactoring services to enable enterprises to build and migrate applications to IBM Cloud Private from within the company’s HCL Cloud Native Labs. The services will be orchestrated and available from HCL’s Cloud Native Labs in London, New York and Noida, later this year.
HCL 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 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,” said Kalyan Kumar, HCL Corporate Vice President and CTO. “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.”
“Application and Platform Transformation is a critical entry point for organisations on their hybrid cloud journey, yet we see that only few enterprise workloads have been modernised to date,” said Denis Kennelly, General Manager for IBM Hybrid Cloud Integration. “Our IBM hybrid cloud solutions combined with the expertise HCL will simplify this for clients and accelerate their journey to the cloud enabled via their Cloud Native Labs. We are excited to work with HCL to drive true transformation for clients worldwide.”
