Indian IT services major HCL Technologies has bagged a multi-million dollar five-year deal to provide IT infrastructure management to the US-based chip maker Freescale Semiconductor.
“We will transform and manage Freescale’s IT infrastructure operations spanning desktop support, compute, storage, database, telecom, process automation and compliance,” HCL senior vice-president Vinod Chandran said in a statement.
As the chip maker’s technology partner, HCL will use its management tools as a service and gold standard processes for executing the long-term contract.
“Our tools will enable Freescale to develop resilient systems, optimise operational costs and reduce technology complexity to sustain highest level of customer service and drive innovation,” Chandran, who also heads HCL’s infrastructure services division in North America, asserted.
Noting that the multi-billion dollar semiconductor industry was dynamic, fast paced and competitive, Freescale IT infrastructure director Hal Yarbrough said HCL would build a robust and agile IT environment required to keep pace with innovation and explore next-generation opportunities worldwide.
