DXC Technology and AWS take their strategic alliance to the next level to offer the future of cloud to customers.

DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), one of the leading global technology services companies, has announced an expansion of its collaboration with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) with the goal of accelerating the adoption of modern, cloud-based IT solutions by its clients.

In this joint initiative, both companies will work closely with approximately 1,000 of DXC’s top IT services clients to streamline their transition to the leading cloud services platform provided by AWS. By migrating their workloads to AWS, DXC’s clients will benefit from exceptional levels of reliability and security, as well as improved access to innovative solutions, all while reducing the operational costs associated with their IT infrastructure. It is worth noting that DXC, a prominent global system integrator, has selected AWS as its preferred cloud services provider to drive innovation and efficiency across its organization. This collaboration promises to deliver cutting-edge solutions and empower digital transformation in a wide range of industries and businesses worldwide.

“We are proud to work with AWS to modernize the IT infrastructure of our clients,” said Mike Salvino, president and CEO of DXC. “This expansion of the agreement encourages us and our clients to accelerate the migration of their core business systems to the cloud. We will leverage AWS’s leading technologies in generative AI, analytics, computing, databases, machine learning, and storage to provide our clients with an ideal platform to modernize and grow their critical workloads. We expect this transformation path will also help DXC shift from operational stability to higher performance.”

“Together, AWS and DXC will help change what’s possible for enterprise clients and prepare them for long-term success,” said Adam Selipsky, CEO of AWS. “Companies that lean into the cloud see immediate benefits, such as increased innovation and cost reduction, with the potential for creating new and differentiated growth opportunities. AWS is committed to partnering with DXC to transform its service delivery into a cloud-centric model by training more than 15,000 professionals on AWS.”

As part of this multi-year extension of their agreement, DXC and AWS will build three key strategic elements to benefit clients:

Accelerated cloud migration and modernization

Clients are increasingly transforming their core enterprise platforms from traditional on-premises environments to the flexibility, reliability, and scalability of the cloud. DXC and AWS are collaborating to expand their migration methodologies, solution accelerators, and combined expertise in large-scale cloud migrations. Following the initial migration, DXC and AWS will continue to work with these clients to assist them in their modernization processes.

Workforce transformation

AWS and DXC are working to significantly expand and deepen the talent pool in cloud capabilities at DXC. Both companies are committed to jointly train and certify 15,000 DXC professionals over the next five years using role-based training and learning experiences. This positions DXC as a leader in migrating workloads from legacy IT environments to the cloud and managing complex IT assets. Clients will have access to an extended platform of advanced, highly skilled AWS-certified professionals to support their cloud migration and modernization goals.

Asset transformation

Together, AWS and DXC will help clients leave behind outdated data center facilities and IT assets in favor of agile, secure, and sustainable cloud technology provided by AWS. This will accelerate cloud adoption and reduce operational costs for DXC and its clients. DXC also plans to sell some of its existing data centers to interested parties.
