Broadcom customers will now have access to HCL’s technological expertise across consulting, implementation, upgrade and support services.
Broadcom Inc., a global technology leader that designs, develops and supplies semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions, has signed a global preferred services partnership agreement with HCL Technologies.
With the deal effective immediately, HCL has now become the preferred services partner for Broadcom’s enterprise software products (part of former CA Technologies). The technology company will provide professional services, education and training services to Broadcom customers.
Broadcom customers will have access to HCL’s technological expertise across consulting, implementation, upgrade and support services. In addition, the majority of Broadcom’s professional services personnel with expertise including Agile, CyberSecurity and DevOps will transition to HCL. Broadcom’s Mainframe and US Public Sector professional services group will continue to operate as-is outside of this partnership agreement.
Strengthens infrastructure software capabilities
“This partnership represents an important building block as we grow our infrastructure software capabilities advanced by the acquisition of CA Technologies last month,” said Hock Tan, President and Chief Executive Officer, Broadcom.
“We believe our partnership, which spans more than a decade, and HCL’s strength in Digital and IT Infrastructure will help us jointly deliver the expertise needed to support our customer’s mission-critical infrastructure software,” Tan added.
Meanwhile, C Vijayakumar, President and CEO, HCL Technologies said that this collaboration highlights their strong and growing relationship with Broadcom.
“We will create a new Center of Excellence with dedicated focus on Broadcom enterprise software products to provide broad capabilities and solutions for a superior customer experience. This will also create another strong differentiating edge to our existing IT Services portfolio.”
The HCL and Broadcom partnership aligns to HCL’s overall growth strategy for its high-momentum Mode 2 services in the Digital, Cloud and Cybersecurity space.
