HCL Technologies said that it has inked an end-to-end IT transformation services agreement with German chemical company Wacker Chemie.
Under the five-year deal, the Indian IT services provider will help Wacker Chemie in setting up a modernized digital workplace and enhance its quality-of-service delivery.
Dr. Rolf Frank Fehler — Senior Vice President of HCL Technologies said: “Germany is a key strategic market for HCL and our engagement with Wacker is testament to our continued growth in the region.
“We are excited to partner with Wacker, as we strongly believe digital transformation is a collaborative journey. HCL’s global delivery model and regional service management will help ensure delivery success at Wacker.”
Wacker Chemie has four business divisions and presently operates 26 production sites around the world.
Its engagement with HCL Technologies is expected to result in considerable cost efficiencies by means of modernization, standardization, and automation.
HCL Technologies will employ artificial intelligence (AI) enabled virtual assistants for driving efficiencies for the German chemical company.
Dirk Ramhorst — CIO and CDO of Wacker Chemie said: “Wacker was looking to transform its current sourcing model with a long-term ‘Next Generation Managed Service’ sourcing model.
“We wanted a partner to not only enhance our digital transformation journey but also support the ‘Wacker Digital Program,’ helping us to become a digital leader in the chemical industry. We have great confidence this partnership will improve efficiencies through potential harmonization of service delivery across IT areas while ensuring frictionless and streamlined processes.”
