HCL Technologies Ltd. has hired former Accenture Plc executive Siki Giunta to head its cloud-consulting business, at a time when demand for cloud services has picked up due to pandemic-induced remote working.
Giunta, who joins HCL Technologies as executive vice president, has a rich experience in leading the development of global cloud strategies for multinational clients. She has scaled enterprise-grade hybrid cloud, data centre and hosting businesses and has been a software products business leader.
She joins HCL Technologies from Accenture, where she was managing director and global strategy lead for that company’s Journey to Cloud programme. Before that, she served as chief executive officer of Managed Objects and Fortisphere.
“Cloud has become the strategic pillar within any organisation to build a responsive, scalable and resilient business model,” Guinta said. “Organizations today are facing an urgent need to ‘rethink cloud’ to accelerate digital transformation and maximise business value aligned with customer needs, organisational goals and unique market conditions.”
Indian IT firms are benefiting from the increased spending by their clients in adopting cloud services for their business. For most companies, a third of the revenue comes from customers looking to shift their applications from their servers to the cloud. VNExplorer
