Mumbai, Sep 9 : IT Major Infosys, in collaboration with Microsoft, on Monday announced a long-term strategic partnership with JG Summit Holdings, Inc, one of the largest and most diversified conglomerates, headquartered in Manila, Philippines.
As technology services partner, Infosys will help formulate and execute the digital transformation strategy for JG Summit, based on Microsoft Azure, an open, hyper-scale, enterprise-grade cloud platform, along with SAP S/4 HANA.
The collaboration between Microsoft and Infosys will offer JG Summit seamless implementation and migration to Microsoft Azure cloud platform, to develop an agile and robust digital infrastructure for its business processes.
To enable the digital journey for JG Summit, Infosys will leverage its Infrastructure Management Solution Suite, a comprehensive hybrid IT management platform to build, adopt and govern hybrid cloud environments, thereby enhancing the overall end-user experience. Infosys will implement SAP S/4 HANA on Azure, and also deploy Wingspan, its next-gen learning solution, to create a culture of learning and collaboration for the employees of JG Summit to help them upskill in this journey.
Lance Y Gokongwei, President and CEO, JG Summit Holdings, said, "Our objective is to embed digitization into our core business strategy across units, subsidiaries, and affiliates. Through the partnership with Infosys and Microsoft, we aim to accelerate our digital transformation journey which will enable us to address evolving business requirements, facilitate easy and secure collaboration among employees and offer better service to our end customers."
