Infosys and Microsoft Facilitate Global Adoption of Cloud

Infosys and Microsoft Facilitate Global Adoption of Cloud

Infosys and Microsoft will jointly address the needs of global enterprises as they adopt the cloud, across industries such as financial services, manufacturing, retail and healthcare.  Both companies will provide cloud-based offerings to clients and collaborate on solution area development, technical proof of concepts, and sales and marketing initiatives.

A MoU has been signed to this end, according to economictimes.indiatimes.com. The article notes that Infosys gets about 2% of its total revenue from its cloud business and sees it as a major growth driver.  Apparently, this is a smart move as a Forrester estimate indicates the global market for cloud technology to go from about $40 billion at present to $241 billion by 2020.”We believe that by 2015, 50-60 % of the enterprise workload or the activities that enterprises use IT for, will be on the cloud,” said global head for Cloud and vice-president at Infosys, Vishnu Bhat.

As per the agreement between the two companies, Infosys will offer Microsoft Private Cloud solutions such as Windows Server Hyper-V and Microsoft System Center, and solutions on Windows Azure to clients. The MoU, according to economictimes.indiatimes.com, also include the co-creation of cloud environments for large corporates, and development of solutions across hybrid IT environments.

These solutions have to be marketed globally and initially targeted to users in the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Middleeast and India.

Looking forward, Infosys will work with clients as an end-to-end cloud ecosystem integrator. It will also provide professional services on the cloud, business platforms in the cloud and a partner ecosystem.  Infosys has partnered with Capgemini to manage ecosystems of suppliers in customer clouds, reports Karl Finders from computerweekly.com. This partnership is important as services in a cloud will be provided by several suppliers and a partner to manage the cloud ecosystem will improve efficiency of this project.
