EY and Infosys join forces to accelerate digital transformation

EY has formed a new global alliance with Infosys, digital services and consulting provider, to support organizations in their end-to-end business transformation and growth.

The alliance takes the current relationship of teaming and go-to-market efforts between EY and Infosys forward to deliver tech-enabled transformation programs.

It will combine EY’s industry-specific consulting services with Infosys’ technology assets and platforms to enable organizations to equip themselves for the future. This approach leverages sector-specific platforms and solutions through emerging technologies such as cloud, internet of things, blockchain and artificial intelligence.

The alliance will focus on building services around Infosys’ sector-specific platforms, co-developing solutions around Infosys’ existing cloud assets and solutions, and co-creating new assets and solutions to address emerging opportunities and challenges.

Andy Baldwin, EY global managing partner of client service and executive sponsor of the EY-Infosys alliance, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many organizations to accelerate the pace of their digital transformation to meet changing customer and market demands. They need to leap-frog from their current legacy business to new models enabled by cloud and powered by disruptive technologies. To achieve this, they will need to draw on a diverse set of external skills and expertise from across the vendor ecosystem.

“The EY-Infosys alliance is designed and positioned to help businesses explore the impact of digital on their strategy, products, services, customers and employees, and assist to unlock maximum value to gain competitive advantage. Through the alliance, businesses can rapidly leverage the complementary skills of EY and Infosys to navigate their own digital transformation journey to effectively build a better working world.”

Mohit Joshi, president of Infosys, added: “Enterprises globally are investing in becoming ‘digital-ready’ organizations today to stay relevant and competitive. Digital technology has evolved, and its significant impact can be seen in most industries. There is now an increasing need for organizations to embrace digital technology than ever before, and we are delighted to collaborate with EY on this journey to enhance client value and help clients mitigate challenges that come with legacy transition.”
