DXC Technology has expanded its existing partnership with Microsoft by forming an Azure Digital Transformation Practice.

The global deal aims to boost customer’s migrations to the Microsoft Azure public cloud with “greater efficiency and agility”.

Under the partnership, DXC and Microsoft will co-invest in the development of products and services built for Azure, and go to market jointly.

“The DXC and Microsoft Azure Digital Transformation Practice enhances our deep and long-standing relationship with Microsoft,” said Dan Hushon, SVP and CTO of DXC. “Through this initiative, we will provide clients with a highly integrated team approach to modernising their IT systems on Azure. 

“The result will be a reduced time-to-digital and a more rapid movement of client workloads from legacy IT to a modern cloud architecture on Azure.”

The announcement comes five months after Microsoft opened its multimillion-dollar technology centre in Sydney in partnership with DXC and the NSW Government.

DXC is now an Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (MSP) and claims to be one of Microsoft’s largest Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) resellers.

“The expanded partnership deepens the long-standing DXC Technology and Microsoft relationship to help organizations more swiftly benefit from digital solutions through Microsoft Azure,” said Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft.

“I am inspired by the digital transformation stories from our clients who leverage the power of the Azure cloud. Together, DXC and Microsoft will bring even greater innovation and value to enterprises from Azure.”

The announcement comes ahead of Microsoft’s global partner conference Inspire. Ahead of this, Schuster revealed to journalists that the vendor plans to launch new specialisations and competencies as well as new programs within Azure, Dynamics 365 and Teams during the event.

Microsoft’s latest cloud push also coincides with its controversial decision to cut off benefits such as internal use rights licenses for partners with Microsoft Action Pack, Silver and Gold competencies, as well as on-premises product licensing support, a move some called a sign of Microsoft’s move away from its traditional reseller base.
