Noida, India and Sunnyvale, CA — November 1, 2018 — HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, today announced a collaboration with Pivotal Software, Inc. (NYSE: PVTL) that combines the unique strengths of two leading cloud visionaries who share a joint vision to transform the way the world builds software.
This collaboration will help enterprises create a new generation of cloud-native applications for Pivotal Cloud Foundry® (PCF), the cloud-native application platform, running on advanced digital infrastructure helping enterprises to accelerate business transformation.
As part of the collaboration, HCL will use Pivotal’s software offerings and Platform Acceleration Lab (PAL). PAL is an immersive training experience to learn PCF, microservices architectures, and continuous integration and delivery practices. HCL will also open three Cloud-Native Labs where enterprises will be able to both build new and modernize existing infrastructure and applications for deployment to PCF. HCL’s services for PCF include building new and modernizing existing applications onto Pivotal Application Service® (PAS) and Pivotal Container Service® (PKS).
HCL intends to open Cloud-Native Labs in London; Dallas, Texas; and Noida, India. The labs in London and Dallas will focus on client-facing ideation, prototyping, and development of new cloud-native solutions. In addition, these labs plan to undertake the replatforming and refactoring of existing applications for PCF.
The Noida lab will address ecosystem product modernization and will be a Center of Excellence (CoE) for PCF third-party ISV product migrations. This lab also plans to replatform key HCL products, such as the DRYiCETM Autonomics and Orchestration suite, to run natively on PCF.
The HCL Cloud-Native Labs will offer immersive training to help large enterprises undertake the cultural transformation necessary to adopt modern cloud-native approaches to software development. Featuring both public and hybrid cloud environments, the HCL Cloud-Native Labs will showcase Pivotal Ready Architecture (PRA) hardware from Dell EMC.
“HCL Technologies’ collaboration with Pivotal is significant as it enables the full spectrum of cloud-native services for our customers. It aligns with the real, pressing requirements for agility, speed, and innovation that we hear from our clients,” said Kalyan Kumar, HCL Corporate Vice President and CTO. “Our range of cloud-native services to be offered on PCF, combined with HCL’s existing services, will allow us to execute complex application migrations and new digital projects at scale, as well as help set up, maintain, and support advanced cloud-native platforms to enable our customers’ digital initiatives.”
“HCL and Pivotal share a similar vision: to enable enterprises to modernize their development practices and securely operate their most important applications across multi-cloud environments,” said Rob Mee, CEO at Pivotal Software. “I am also delighted to announce that HCL has received the Systems Integrator Rising Star award. This award recognizes a partner who has an emerging practice around Pivotal’s offerings that is having early impact with customers.”
HCL, a Platinum sponsor of the SpringOne Platform, received the 2018 Systems Integrator Rising Star Partner of the Year award at the show, Pivotal’s annual conference held in Washington, D.C., September 24-27, 2018.
