Ap­prox­i­mately 2,500 highly skilled peo­ple work­ing for the Volvo Group will trans­fer to HCL across 11 coun­tries. The deal is one of the largest IT deals signed by any In­dian IT com­pany, and a first in the in­dus­try to use prin­ci­ples of Vested Sourc­ing as the ba­sis of the re­la­tion­ship for an IT out­sourc­ing en­gage­ment of this size and mag­ni­tude.

HCL will de­liver on a tech­nol­ogy trans­for­ma­tion roadmap that spans over 3,500 ap­pli­ca­tions, 20 + data cen­tres, over 11,000 servers, 12 PB of stor­age, 20,000+ MIPS of main­frame ca­pac­ity and over 15,000 net­work de­vices. As part of this roadmap, HCL will also pro­vide over 65,000 Volvo end users with ac­cess to pro­duc­tiv­ity and user en­able­ment so­lu­tions, such as Mi­crosoft Of­fice 365.

We are ex­cited to drive busi­ness trans­for­ma­tion through IT for one of the world’s lead­ing com­pa­nies,” said Anant Gupta, Pres­i­dent & CEO, HCL Tech­nolo­gies.“We wel­come over 40 new Volvo IT cus­tomers to the HCL client base. This ad­di­tion en­ables HCL to achieve an even stronger pres­ence in the Nordics and the wider Euro­pean re­gion, and ac­cel­er­ates our jour­ney in these mar­kets. We are also pleased to have sig­nif­i­cantly en­hanced our di­verse work­force, with highly skilled in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als join­ing us from Volvo’s IT busi­ness. The Volvo Group em­ploy­ees and con­sul­tants will add great value for our cus­tomers with the skills and ex­per­tise that they bring. We are de­lighted to wel­come them to our team. The deal per­fectly em­bod­ies HCL’s on­go­ing mis­sion to de­velop its busi­ness with an in­no­va­tion-led mind set.”
