DXC Technology Launches Analytics Migration Factory for Microsoft Azure

End-to-end IT services firm DXC Technology has announced the first-ever Analytics Migration Factory for Microsoft Azure, a new factory model featuring advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities that aims to help clients garner greater value from their data and analytics in the cloud.

DXC opened the factory in Bangalore, India Sept. 18, and has plans establish two more Analytics Migrations Factories in Warsaw, Poland, and Manila, the Philippines, by December.

The Analytics Migration Factory offers clients an efficient, end-to-end experience for developing and delivering analytics workload migration solutions to Azure, with the Bangalore team featuring professionals skilled in data science and cloud architecture, design and deployment, and Azure skills and certifications. DXC has more than 900 Azure professional certifications, another 900 analytics clients and approximately 8,000 analytics and AI professionals worldwide.

“We’ve entered a new artificial intelligence (AI)-based innovation cycle in the digital era,” said Edward Ho, EVP and GM of offerings at DXC. “Increasingly, global enterprises want to leverage and benefit from digital innovations like AI and machine learning for smooth, rapid and orchestrated migration of data and analytic workloads from any source to the cloud.

“Our partner, Microsoft, has built Microsoft Azure, a productive cloud platform with a wide portfolio of AI productivity tools that enable clients to unlock the value of their data and build smart applications with incredible speed and agility. DXC’s dedicated Azure factory and Azure-certified teams help clients achieve faster, more efficient and safer cloud migrations, while rapidly implementing new applications with innovative tools and integrating pre-built analytics and AI services.”

Rohan Kumar, corporate VP of the Azure Data Platform for Microsoft, added, “DXC’s Analytics Migration Factory approach is a significant advancement for companies seeking to move their analytics workloads quickly and efficiently to Microsoft Azure and open new opportunities to gain value from their data and analytics.” Kumar also said that having analytics capability on a modern cloud platform will “enable the infusion of artificial intelligence and machine learning, providing additional insight to client businesses.”

Multiple lines at the factory address core areas of assessment, design, development, testing, and migration deployment, supported by DXC managed services and project management. The DXC Analytics Migration Factory also employs DXC Bionix, the company’s secure digital-generation services delivery model.

“Creating a new business model to transform an organization is not easily achieved by large enterprises,” said Ali Zaidi, research director of IT consulting and systems integration services for IDC. “These organizations are looking for ways to take advantage of new platforms using IoT and analytics solutions, without disrupting the business. The ability to migrate the analytics and data workload efficiently to these platforms, with no business disruption, helps organizations to improve analytic insight while managing risk.”
