Persistent Systems Ltd. said it’s expanding further its collaboration with International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), less than a month after the Pune-based IT firm joined the partner ecosystem of the American company.
Over the last 20 years, the collaboration between the two companies has grown from a project in security to working with more than 400 shared customers and 50 IBM brands.
The mid-tier software services firm will now help fuel digital transformation for customers across the enterprise, while continuing to invest in IBM technology that helps its customers adopt hybrid cloud architectures with Red Hat OpenShift, industry-specific clouds and advanced security practices.
“Today more than ever, organisations realise the urgent imperative to accelerate digital transformation by building and scaling with future-ready technologies,” said Sandeep Kalra, chief executive officer, Persistent Systems. “Our shared mission encourages enterprises to modernise their infrastructure and operations with advanced technology and we look forward to continuing our work together.”
“Our longtime collaboration with Persistent across industry sectors fuels our shared mission to help enterprises and their customers accelerate their digital transformations with Red Hat OpenShift,” Evaristus Mainsah, general manager at IBM Hybrid Cloud and Edge Ecosystem. Together with Persistent, we’re delivering hybrid cloud and AI strategies that customers need to succeed in the marketplace.” 24htech
