HCL Outlines Its Cloud Computing Achievements

  1. 1. Analyst Coverage January 07 To September 09
  2. 2. HCL Outlines Its Cloud Computing Achievements "Its client base extends from the enterprise segment to technology vendors. For technology vendors, the company assists in servicing the clients of its clients. The SAP cloud offering is unusual and competing services are only offered by 2 U.S. headquartered vendors and half a dozen European IT services vendors." HCL Technologies has recently outlined key contracts for its cloud computing offering. The company has been involved in building and sometimes operating private clouds for technology vendors and ISVs, combining its product engineering, application and IT infrastructure outsourcing capabilities. The company has been involved depending on the client from the business and IT strategy phase to the project delivery. The range of services that the company has provided is wide: it has been involved in redesigning the internal infrastructure of several ISVs or helping with the software product strategies of its clients to external clients that include first-tier ISVs and technology vendors with headquarters in the U.S. and in Europe and others. For a U.S. Fortune 1000 ISV: HCL has been involved in several initiatives including simplifying the application architecture of its internal ERP applications, upgrading SAP applications and supporting servers. As part of the SAP server transformation, HCL Technologies has migrated the physical servers from a competitors datacenter into its own in Georgia and virtualized those to build a private cloud for the production environment. The company established a back up site to Sungard that is used for testing environments. The client favored building a private cloud rather than using public cloud services for several reasons including its requirement to provide a recovery within 15 minutes. HCL has however wherever possible aimed to share select elements e.g. networks and managed security among several clients. For a Europe-based Fortune 500 ISV: HCL has helped design the clients strategy for its midmarket clients. The clients mid-market SaaS-like offering includes the license cost and the underlying maintenance & support, help desk and hosting services. The application is however single-tenant. A key challenge for HCL has been to keep IT costs under control to enable the SaaS offering of SAP to be profitable. The service is available for demo, trial and production for a fixed price per user per month. 2

  4. 4. HCL acknowledged as an experience partnerfor Virtualization services HCL has been positioned as a “premier full-service infrastructure service providers. HCL Technologies virtualization offerings are particularly suited to large companies looking for an experienced partner, existing outsourcing clients and clients who may wish to outsource their environment after virtualization.” ―From its legacy of building and operating a high-availability, high-response time infrastructure, HCL Technologies has developed into one of the premier full-service infrastructure service providers. Its virtualization credentials include engagements with more than 25 Fortune 500 and Global 1000 customers, a global system integration partnership with VMware and partnerships with Microsoft, Cisco, EMC, Hitachi Data Systems and Sun Microsystems, and a team of more than 150 virtualization professionals supported by 300 other infrastructure implementation specialists on a worldwide basis. While HCL Technologies offers traditional consulting services to virtualize servers, storage, networks and desktops, it started offering in January 2009 a unified virtualization as a service (UVaaS) offering, providing network, storage, server and desktop virtualization. In this offering, HCL Technologies takes over a clients hardware assets, virtualizes them and "rents" them back to the client on a per-month, per-virtual instance basis. For clients, this means no capital expenditure (capex) investments and no upfront investments on licenses. It also offers "Business Ready with Virtual Infrastructure Utility" for specific applications, such as SAP. To date, it has implemented more than 100 licenses. Clients can pick among three productized service packs: basic, gold and platinum, depending on the level of services needed. Pricing is dependent on the number of servers virtualized. As an example, a basic service pack starts at $35 per virtual machine per month. HCL Technologies virtualization offerings are particularly suited to large companies looking for an experienced partner, existing outsourcing clients and clients who may wish to outsource their environment after virtualization. Client feedback indicates that HCL Technologies is particularly flexible as a partner, has the experience and capability to help clients avoid pitfalls in their virtualization journey and is willing to invest in clients by performing upfront work, such as planning and justification on "their own nickel.‖ 4

  38. 38. IDC praises HCL‟ s shift in focus from volume tovalue in APAC With its new value-centric approach, HCL Technologies aims to drive higher revenue and to gain market share from the other Indian service providers (TCS, Wipro, Infosys & Satyam), as well as challenging the traditional leaders like IBM and Accenture in the IT and business services market place HCL Technologies next phase of their transformation strategy is based on five main pillars:  Pricing innovation  Technology disruption  Market Creation  Service Innovation  Investment in Employees HCL Technologies transformation strategy has delivered impressive results  revenue in Asia/ Pacific surged by 81.5% to US$64 million in Q307  Share of Asia/ Pacific revenues in global revenues has also increased from 11.8% in Q306 to 15.0% in Q307 The company is beginning to win some of the larger deals in the region where they have beaten out some of the higher profile competition  signed a key application outsourcing deal with Fonterra Co-operative Group in New Zealand worth approx USD 35 Million  The deal highlights how the company is diversifying from its traditional strong vertical, namely financial industry, into other verticals HCL Technologies has been successful in increasing the average deal size by going after larger and more complex engagements with their customers This trend shows HCL Technologies ability to engage in a business solution type of engagements with its customers IDC believes they will be able to grow the revenues much faster than their customer acquisition 38
  39. 39. Ovum sees HCL as a strong contender in Europe  HCL is a company that works very hard to differentiate itself from the pack of Indian outsourcers  HCL has very healthy growth and profitability indicators, which put it in a good position to expand and invest in new capabilities, geographies and verticals  HCL has a much more balanced service line portfolio compared with its Indian peers, with much stronger infrastructure and BPO service lines.  HCL positions itself away from commodity ADM work and into higher-value ‗transformational‘ outsourcing  HCL is a leader in its peer group in terms of offshore RIM services, and is well placed to pick up expected growth in demand for these services 39
  40. 40. Ovum recognizes HCL‟ s position in the EuropeanRIM Market  HCL has made a notable impact on the European RIM markets (particularly in the UK) in recent years  HCL‘s current aim is to move beyond this and into infrastructure and business process services as part of an ongoing strategy to sustain growth rates, and achieve deeper customer penetration  growth rates in infrastructure management are significantly ahead of broader market growth  The current market demands suppliers to be flexible in how they engage and work with in-house IT teams  For example, HCL uses its ‗co-sourcing‘ model to emphasis its position as a collaborator 40
  41. 41. HCL‟ s value framework and methodology makeswavesAdding business value for customers is an increasingly important focus of the service provider industryHCL has defined the concept of a ‗value framework‘, which is used to model not only the context of the service provider and customer within the service delivery relationship, but also the high-level context of the customer‘s business with external partiesHCL‘s framework recognizes that either or both parties in the service delivery relationship can be beneficiaries of particular measures to add valueIts case studies from one prominent customer in the financial services sector show that HCL conceived changes to business processes, and the underlying technology that delivers savings of over US$850,000 annually, without additional contractual costs 41
