Bangalore: Infosys has announced the expansion of their decade-long partnership with Microsoft Corp. to help enterprises transform their business and tap opportunities in a cloud-first, mobile-first world.
As one of Microsoft’s leading systems integration partners globally, Infosys has thousands of Microsoft Certified Professionals. It will now expand its capabilities for analytics and other service offerings on Microsoft technologies. Infosys will also establish a global centre of excellence for Microsoft Azure Machine Learning capable of training more than 1,000 engineers by the end of fiscal year 2015.
Infosys also announced the expansion of its partnership with Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) to bring next-generation infrastructure and data center transformation solutions to enterprises. The new solutions will help improve operational efficiencies and facilitate smooth transition of their IT infrastructure to new cloud-based environments.

Together we have transformed businesses and redefined the way enterprises use computing technologies.
