Data-sensitive industries

Infosys will be able to deploy technical expertise from IBM to support clients in their move to IBM public cloud. IBM will work with Infosys and its clients to speed efforts such as proof of concepts, running cloud pilots, staffing client innovation centers and other mechanisms designed to deliver value quickly and securely

“Enterprises cannot truly succeed at digital transformation without leveraging cloud — be it transforming processes, expanding into new markets, launching new products, automating operations or elevating the customer experience, the cloud is the true enabler to complete digital transformation,” said Ravi Kumar S, president, Infosys.

“But enterprises, especially in highly regulated and data-sensitive industries are worried about privacy, regulatory compliance, security and system downtime as they embark on this transformation journey. Our collaboration with IBM will help enterprises across industries address these concerns and accelerate their digital transformation journey on IBM public cloud.”

RedHat OpenShift

Enterprise-grade capabilities and support for open source technologies, including RedHat OpenShift, the IBM public cloud is designed to extend the hybrid cloud strategies for the most complex enterprise workloads. It also helps provide preventative and compensatory controls for regulatory workloads, multi-architecture support, and proactive and automated security, leveraging a high level of encryption standards.

“As businesses today continue to migrate critical workloads to the public cloud, they are also demanding the highest levels of security and control to ensure their data is not compromised,” said Bob Lord, senior vice president, Cognitive Applications and Ecosystems, IBM. “To help clients achieve this balance, we are collaborating with Infosys to provide clients – including those in highly regulated industries – with a seamless path to the IBM public cloud, which was built with their specific needs in mind.”
