The country’s third largest software services firm HCL Technologies has been selected by Asda — UK’s third-largest grocery retailer — to help drive IT transformation at the company. The three-year application services contract will involve Asda’s IT Application Services being transformed with a new DevOps delivery model to drive data and analytics and support back-office applications. HCL will also build a central data management platform to enable Asda to improve its insight and analytics capabilities, the company said in a statement on Thursday.“As organizations embark on a digital transformation with technology increasingly driving the business, it’s critical that we have the agility to respond quickly to changing needs, particularly in capabilities such as Data and Analytics” said Phil Tenney, CIO at Asda. The retailer operates more than 600 stores across the UK, employing over 135,000 people. The partnership would allow the company to respond faster to business requirements and reduce time to market, while driving better user experience and satisfaction. Ashish Gupta, Corporate Vice President, at HCL Technologies said, “Today’s grocery retail market is highly-competitive and the increasing trend towards online shopping and in-store digitalization puts more pressure than ever on IT to accelerate innovation.”The company however did not disclose the size of the deal.
