DXC Technology and Amazon Web Services (AWS), have announced an agreement to build a new DXC - AWS Integrated Practice that will ease cloud migration for businesses.

The new DXC - AWS Integrated Practice builds on the existing DXC and AWS relationship and is focused on enabling clients to easily migrate their existing IT environments and applications to the cloud. The practice is the centerpiece of a far-reaching, multi-year agreement between the two companies that 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,” said Mike Lawrie, chairman, president and CEO, of DXC Technology. “In addition to driving new levels of performance and productivity, clients will realize 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 for AWS; dedicated VMware Cloud on AWS migration solution; analytics services on AWS; and, application services for AWS.

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

DXC is already a Premier Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and is an audited AWS Managed Service Provider, and holds multiple AWS Migration Competencies. DXC has more than 8,000 AWS Business and Technical Professional Accreditations, which is the most held by one company outside of AWS. In addition, DXC holds more than 900 AWS certifications including associate and professional level certifications, with plans to double that number in the next year, as part of the DXC AWS collaboration.

In the region, Union Insurance recently deployed DXC’s Integral, an end-to-end insurance solution that covers the entire insurance lifecycle, from point of sale to claims and payouts, with functions accessed from a single web portal, on AWS. “We’re excited about the power of DXC and AWS coming together to accelerate our migration to the cloud,” said Anshul Srivastav, CIO of UAE-based Union Insurance. “Now, our time-to-market with innovative products that are designed to thrill our customers is almost real-time. As a result, a lot more new, technology-based insurance products are getting rolled out and are generating revenue for the company.”
