Organizations are increasingly seeking ways to accelerate their migration to cloud and efficiently scale their digital strategies. “The worldwide public cloud services market is projected to grow 17.5 percent in 2019 to total $214.3 billion, up from $182.4 billion in 2018, according to Gartner, Inc.”
“Organizations need cloud-related services to get onboarded onto public clouds and to transform their operations as they adopt public cloud services,” said Sid Nag, research vice president at Gartner. “Currently almost 19 percent of cloud budgets are spent on cloud-related services, such as cloud consulting, implementation, migration and managed services, and Gartner expects that this rate will increase to 28 percent by 2022.”
The DXC and Microsoft Azure Digital Transformation Practice will focus on helping organizations manage the pace of technology change by bringing greater agility to the creation and execution of public cloud strategies. For example, DXC is teaming with Alstom, a world leader in sustainable mobility that is migrating its systems to the Azure public cloud.
“The public cloud is naturally the key component of our transformation,” said Stéphane Detruiseux, chief information security officer and technology vice president, Alstom, which offers systems, equipment and services for the transport sector.

“The DXC and Microsoft Azure Digital Transformation Practice enhances our deep and long-standing relationship with Microsoft,” said Dan Hushon, DXC senior vice president and chief technology officer. “Through this initiative, we will provide clients with a highly integrated team approach to modernizing their IT systems on Azure.

Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft said,“The expanded partnership deepens the long-standing DXC Technology and Microsoft relationship to help organizations more swiftly benefit from digital solutions through Microsoft Azure.
