We recently reported on HCL, a forerunner in India’s technology sector, and the emergence of its Blue Ocean through the combination of collaborative outsourcing (client companies can pick and chose which part of their IT infrastructure operations to outsource) and remote management.
It seems that the HCL’s pursuit of Blue Oceans has drawn the attention of the world’s largest business software company, SAP, setting the stage for an equitable partnership between the two companies.
From a recent press release issued by SAP:
As part of the agreement, SAP and HCL will now partner to enhance value and accelerate growth for customers in a manner that will reduce implementation costs while providing strong domain-centric solutions to transform their business processes.
“HCL’s global partnership with SAP is a step towards delivering on the promise of a services-based IT approach,” said Vineet Nayar, CEO of HCL Technologies. “By combining SAP’s global market leadership in inter-enterprise solutions with HCL’s domain expertise and focus of creating new markets and solutions through a Blue Ocean strategy, we plan to create and deliver new innovative solutions that deliver unique customer value.”
