HCL Technologies (HCL) and VMware have launched HCL’s dedicated VMware business unit to help enterprises unlock the untapped value of multi-cloud and app modernisation.
The new unit combines the power of HCL’s CloudSMART Framework with VMware’s Cross-Cloud services to help enterprises accelerate cloud transformation, scale cloud-native platform operations and empower hybrid workforces.
HCL’s new VMware business unit is part of its Strategic Alliance Partner Ecosystem, which leverages the CloudSMART Framework to provide multi-cloud and app modernization solutions. HCL will help enterprises pursue the path of digital dominance by aligning transformation with overall business objectives while remaining agile through cloud freedom and enterprise control enabled by VMware product and service offerings.

“With HCL, we are helping our mutual customers by providing the smartest path to app, cloud and edge modernization and a more secure, frictionless experience for the distributed workforce. VMware preserves customer choice and protects against lock-in through multi-cloud services that offer businesses the freedom and flexibility they need to build the future.”
