DXC Technology opens Analytics Migration Factory to boost migration to Microsoft Azure
Virginia-based DXC Technology opened its first Analytics Migration Factory in Bangalore, India on 18 September
The factory’s purpose is to accelerate clients’ workload migration to Microsoft Azure, the tech giant’s cloud platform augmented with a strong range of AI-based productivity tools.
Azure’s intelligent platform enables companies to strengthen their data analysis, and rapidly develop smart applications.
Edward Ho, executive vice president and general manager of Offerings at DXC, said:
“DXC’s dedicated Azure factory and Azure-certified teams help clients achieve faster, more efficient and safer cloud migrations, while rapidly implementing new applications with innovative tools and integrating pre-built analytics and AI services”.
The factory offers companies a complete migration solution, utilizing a production line methodology to maximize quality control and optimize scheduling and productivity.
This approach also mitigates costs, as well as simplifying governance and project execution.

- Adobe to buy marketing software firm Marketo for $4.75bn
Factory lines focus on vital areas of assessment, design, development, testing, and migration deployment, all of which are supported by DXC managed services and a meticulous method of product management.
DXC’s factory deploys “consistent and repeatable deployment methods” according to its press release, which ensures “seamless integration and efficiency of the migration process to minimize business disruption”.
Risks in security management, service continuity, and workload support are reduced by mature ‘run’ processes, tools, DevOps and thorough usage reporting as part of the package.
The firm has plans to open two further factories in Warsaw, Poland, and Manila, the Philippines.
