Indian global technology firm HCL Technologies has teamed up with Google to launch a Google Cloud Business unit through which it aims to push the adoption of enterprise cloud.

A statement from HCL said a dedicated business group would handle the new business and it had more than 1300 employees who were already trained on Google Cloud.

The company said this number would be increased to more than 5000 and expertise would be provided in containerisation, hybrid and multi-cloud with Anthos, compute, data and analytics, AI and ML, and collaboration with G Suite.

Solutions offered by the new business unit would include:

  • SAP workload and application migration to GCP;
  • Hybrid and multi-cloud deployments with Google Cloud’s Anthos;
  • Adoption of leading Google Cloud data, AI, and ML solutions in areas like e-commerce, supply chain, and marketing;
  • Application and data centre modernisation;
  • Workplace transformation and collaboration with G Suite; and
  • DevSecOps and service orchestration.

"HCL and Google have a deep and long-standing relationship, and this new business unit is a strategic step forward in our partnership," said C. Vijayakumar, president and chief executive, HCL Technologies.

"I am confident that the Google Cloud Business Unit will accelerate execution of digital transformation of global organisations as well as incubate new IP and solutions that will redefine the market."

“The cloud is at the heart of innovation and digital transformation for enterprises, and unlocks new opportunities for them to tackle their most important challenges,” said Thomas Kurian, chief executive of Google Cloud.

“Through our partnership with HCL, we can help organisations deploy Google Cloud broadly and at scale, and move their most critical, data-intensive workloads to GCP.”

The company said it would set up three Google Cloud-specific Cloud Native Labs in Dallas, London, and at NCR in India to give customers a place to pilot projects on Google Cloud.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?
