HCL Technologies announced its IT transformation deal with Asda, the third-largest grocery retailer in UK.
India-based HCL will transform Asda’s IT Application Services with a new DevOps delivery model to drive data and analytics and support back-office applications according to the three-year application services contract.
HCL will also build a central data management platform to enable Asda to improve its insight and analytics capabilities. Infosys, TCS, Wipro, Cognizant, among others, are also looking for similar IT deals.
Asda, which operates more than 600 stores across the UK, aims to respond faster to business requirements and reduce time to market, while driving better user experience and satisfaction, by selecting HCL Technologies for the application development and testing.
“As organizations embark on a digital transformation with technology increasingly driving the business, it’s critical that we have the agility to respond to changing needs, particularly in capabilities such as Data and Analytics,” said Phil Tenney, CIO at Asda.
