Infosys, India's second largest IT services company, on Thursday announced an expansion of its relationship with Microsoft to accelerate the digital transformation of enterprise clients.

In a release issued on Thursday, Infosys said the company has launched a new Microsoft Cloud Business Unit that will focus on the comprehensive cloud needs of enterprises – from infrastructure to business applications.

The Microsoft Cloud Business Unit at Infosys will consist of a central pool of trained consultants, architects and specialist sales team that will be aligned to four core solution areas - Modern Workplace, Business Applications, Application Development & Infrastructure and Data & Analytics.

The new unit is chartered to develop and deliver integrated experiences, solutions and services spanning Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Office 365, Windows 10 and Microsoft Dynamics 365, the company said.

Commenting on the development, Infosys President and Deputy Chief Operating Officer Ravi Kumar S said Infosys clients are continuing to scale their digital agendas to transform their business and operating models.

"This presents a unique opportunity for Infosys to partner with our clients and help them navigate this disruption," he said.

As part of this enhanced alliance, Infosys will also establish a global Microsoft Cloud Innovation Centre in the US, which will act as a forum to help enterprise clients utilise the power of Microsoft Cloud. The Centre will enable incubation, co-innovation and proliferation of solutions leveraging Microsoft Cloud services.
