DXC Technology to spearhead Alstom’s digital transformation and innovation strategy

DXC Technology, a leading global technology services provider, has signed a contract with Alstom to manage the organization’s entire information system for the next five years.

Extending the two organizations’ long-standing partnership, DXC will support Alstom in its digital transformation journey and help achieve its goal of providing innovative and sustainable mobility solutions.

In order to become one of the world’s top performers in the transportation market, Alstom has been optimising its cloud infrastructure and has extended its trust in DXC to assist in addressing new challenges in the mobility sector.

As part of the new contract, DXC will develop an optimal, cost-effective cloud strategy on a large-scale project encompassing 122 physical locations. With advanced tools and agile methodologies, DXC will streamline Alstom’s essential IT architecture, modernising its enterprise applications including SAP. To protect data and control costs, DXC will help Alstom maintain critical data centre infrastructure at specific sites.

“To accelerate our agility and lay the foundations for future growth, we needed secure and flexible IT infrastructure,” explained Stéphane Detruiseux, Chief Information Security Officer and Vice President of Technology at Alstom. “Migrating and optimising our IT infrastructure to public and hybrid cloud environments is a key element of this transformation and working with DXC allows us to choose the most efficient and cost-effective solutions.”

“Alstom is a world-leading manufacturer and we are proud to have been selected to bolster its innovation strategy and drive forward its digital transformation with cutting-edge, cloud-enabled business solutions,” said Chris Drumgoole, Executive Vice President and Global Lead, Cloud Infrastructure & ITO at DXC Technology. “We have already implemented DXC Platform X to automate Alstom’s processes and consolidate workloads into a single, highly virtualized solution, and have seamlessly migrated over 1,000 virtual machines to Microsoft Azure.”
