By moving their workloads to AWS, DXC’s customers will have access to the highest levels of reliability and security, as well as the ability to increase innovation while lowering the cost of operating IT infrastructure. In addition, DXC, a leading Global Systems Integrator, has chosen AWS as its cloud provider of choice to drive innovation and efficiency across its organization.
“We are proud to work with AWS to modernize our customers’ IT infrastructure,” said Mike Salvino, chairman, president and CEO, DXC. “This expanded agreement encourages us and our customers to accelerate the migration of their core enterprise systems to the cloud. We will leverage AWS’s leading generative AI, analytics, compute, database, machine learning and storage technologies to provide our customers with an ideal platform for to modernize and expand their critical workloads. We expect this transformation path will also help shift DXC from operational stability to higher performance.”

Accelerated cloud migration and modernization
Customers are increasingly transforming their core business platforms from on-premise environments typical of legacy IT outsourcing to the flexibility, reliability and scalability of the cloud. DXC and AWS are collaborating to scale their migration methods, solution accelerators and combined expertise in large cloud migrations. After the initial migration, DXC and AWS will continue to work with these customers to help them on their modernization journeys.
AWS and DXC are collaborating to significantly expand and deepen the cloud skills talent pool at DXC. Both companies commit to jointly train and certify 15,000 DXC professionals over the next five years using role-based training and learning experiences. This underscores DXC as a leader in migrating workloads from legacy IT environments to the cloud and managing complex IT estates. Customers will have access to an expanded bench of highly trained and advanced AWS-certified resources to support their cloud migration and modernization goals.
Together, AWS and DXC will help customers abandon aging data center facilities and IT assets in favor of agile, secure and sustainable cloud technology delivered by AWS. This will accelerate cloud adoption and reduce operating costs for DXC and its customers. DXC also plans to divest some of its existing data centers to interested parties.
