In order to that, we needed to count on the best IT Partner who can help define, develop and implement our IT transformation roadmap for the next 5 years. As such, HCL was the right partner for Alstom as we found HCL to be flexible, agile and having a collaborative approach and these were also the most important criteria we were looking for in a partner”

Alstom engagement is HCL’s one of the largest infrastructure services engagement across France and Benelux.” said Ashish Gupta, Corporate Vice President & Head-Diversified Industries & Infrastructure Services, EMEA, HCL Technologies.

“Our track record in carrying out build, operate and transfer projects, and implementing multi-sourcing services integration gave Alstom the confidence that we were their ideal technology partner. One of the pillars of our core philosophy is being flexible and agile in our approach, so we are well-positioned to align seamlessly and respond to the demands of this exciting start-up business as it evolves rapidly.”

With extensive experience of core IT business across industries, HCL has made significant progress in becoming one of the most successful IT firms in the European market.

Moreover, it helps its clients to focus on meeting the challenges of the market and growing their business by integrating IT systems and business processes, optimizing the utilization of IT Delivery processes, resources, applications and infrastructure, and predicting visibility across supply chain and reliability into operations.
