New Delhi, Sep 26 (IANS) Global technology company HCL Technologies (HCL) on Wednesday announced a five-year infrastructure services deal with Britain-based mining firm Anglo American.
The deal requires HCL to support Anglo American through the adoption of Cloud, reducing Anglo American’s global data center footprint through consolidation of its on-premise infrastructure and partial migration to an Infrastructure-as-a-Service operating model.
HCL said it would also continue to provide regional and local service desk support and end-user computing services.
Anglo American runs mining operations with a workforce of 69,000 people worldwide.
HCL was enlisted as Anglo American’s IT services partner in 2013.
Through the renewed deal, HCL said it would further improve quality and consistency by standardising and centralising IT infrastructure services across both organisations.
“This renewal underscores a key tenet of HCL’s success strategy, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to satisfying customers and building relationships that evolve over the long term,” said Sandeep Saxena, Senior Vice President, HCL Technologies.
