HCL Technologies on Monday said it became preferred the services partner for chip-making giant Broadcom Inc's enterprise software products and will provide professional services, education and training services.
The San Jose, California-headquartered Broadcom designs, develops and supplies semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions.
As a result of the global preferred services partnership agreement between the two companies, 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 will transition to HCL.
Broadcom's mainframe and US public sector professional services group will continue to operate as-is outside of this partnership agreement.
"This partnership represents an important building block as we grow our infrastructure software capabilities advanced by the acquisition of CA Technologies last month," said Hock Tan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Broadcom.
"We believe our partnership, which spans more than a decade and HCL's strength in digital and IT infrastructure, will help us jointly deliver the expertise needed to support our customer's mission-critical infrastructure software," Tan said.
HCL said it would create a new "Center of Excellence" with dedicated focus on Broadcom enterprise software products to provide broad capabilities and solutions for a superior customer experience.
"This collaboration highlights our strong and growing relationship with Broadcom," said C. Vijayakumar, President and CEO, HCL Technologies.
