Mahindra Satyam, the new identity of Satyam Computer Services Ltd, has announced a strategic alliance with Gen-i, one of Australasia's leading ICT services providers for migration to Wndows 7-based services.
Mahindra Satyam, a leading global consulting and IT services provider, said the partnership of two innovative companies will offer a suite of leading edge services that will help reduce costs and complexity to improve productivity for customers.
"We are thrilled to strengthen and expand our relationship with Gen-i. Today's agreement leverages both companies' expertise to enable customers to realise an improved user experience with greater reliability and lower total cost of ownership. We believe this is where we can make a real difference and add value to our customers," said CP Gurnani, CEO of Mahindra Satyam.
"It's great to see our partners joining together to form alliances that will bring increased business benefits to our customers. Services such as their automated testing will dramatically reduce overheads for enterprises, allowing them to accelerate their deployment and reap the benefits of Windows 7," said Sarah Vaughan, Windows 7 commercial group lead, Microsoft Australia.
Mahindra's Satyam Windows 7 migration approach includes tools for automated testing, automated remediation, and packaging for Vista, Windows 7 and App-V that aids enterprises to automate 90 to 95 per cent of its remediation requirements. This will help to reduce the compatibility testing and remediation costs of up to 40 to 50 per cent, the company said in a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
"Our partnerships with Tech Mahindra, Mahindra Satyam and Microsoft enables us to manage client transformation programmes rapidly, efficiently and cost-effectively," said Murray Young, general manager (professional services) of Gen-i.
