Broadcom to Outsource Some CA Technologies Work to HCL Tech
Broadcom has selected HCL Technologies as the services partner for its enterprise software products, one of the two primary business units of CA Technologies, an enterprise software company that the chipmaker bought earlier this year for $19 billion. Along with services, the deal also foresees HCL taking on some of the former employees of CA Technologies.
CA Technologies operated two main business units – mainframe and enterprise software - when it was acquired by the chipmaker. The current partnership is for the latter.
“Broadcom’s Mainframe and US Public Sector professional services group will continue to operate as-is outside of this partnership agreement,” HCL Tech said.
HCL has been a traditional partner to Broadcom for over a decade, which makes the Indian tech company a logical choice to offload some CA Tech workloads.
As part of the contract, the firm will create a Centre of Excellence for Broadcom enterprise software products “to provide broad capabilities and solutions for a superior customer experience”.
According to a company press release, “Broadcom customers will have access to HCL’s technological expertise across consulting, implementation, upgrade and support services. In addition, the majority of Broadcom’s professional services personnel with expertise including Agile, CyberSecurity, and DevOps will transition to HCL.”
