The new group will also focus on accelerating migration to the cloud, building modern apps more rapidly, and using the cloud as a foundation for innovation and new business models, ultimately realizing greater value.
Deep expertise in hybrid cloud and cloud migrations
The new business group represents a new multi-year, multi-million-dollar investment from the two companies. It also brings dedicated professionals together with deep expertise in hybrid cloud and cloud migrations, cloud-native and application modernization, and security across key industries.
