Infosys announces digital transformation collaboration with STARK Group
Infosys, a global frontrunner in next-generation digital services and consulting, has entered into a strategic multi-year partnership with STARK Group, Europe’s leading retailer and distributor of building materials. The collaboration will focus on advancing STARK Group’s digital transformation journey by leveraging Infosys Topaz, an AI-first suite of services and platforms. The deal also involves the establishment of a cutting-edge data center in Denmark that aims to provide technological support and services to STARK Group’s European offices.
Infosys to Empower STARK Group with AI-Driven Efficiencies
An ‘AI-first’ approach, powered by Infosys Topaz, will be central to this partnership. The collaboration aims to elevate STARK Group’s operational efficiencies and service quality through AI-driven technologies. Infosys will also employ its cloud-enabled Live Enterprise Application Management Platform (LEAP) as part of its Cobalt suite to automate STARK Group’s IT operations, aiming for continual improvements and innovations.
Pernille Geneser, Group CIO, STARK Group, said, “We at STARK Group are excited to announce our collaboration with Infosys as we embark on a transformation journey to deliver state-of-the-art and future-fit IT services to our colleagues in the Nordics, Austria, Germany and UK. With Infosys’ expertise, we look forward to enhancing the quality of our offerings and kickstarting many new innovations.”
A Boost to Infosys’ Presence in the Nordics Region
Karmesh Vaswani, EVP & Global Head Retail, Consumer Goods & Logistics, Infosys, added, “We are thrilled to embark on this transformative multi-year collaboration with the STARK Group, aimed at driving digital transformation. Leveraging our cutting-edge technologies, including Infosys Topaz and our cloud-enabled platform LEAP, we are confident that this collaboration will bring unparalleled value and innovation to Stark Group.
