IBM has announced a partnership with Tata Consultancy Services to assist clients with cloud transformation using IBM Cloud Paks.

TCS is to establish an IBM Cloud Enterprise Architecture Unit involving technical staff from both companies in order to develop solutions for cloud migration across applications, analytics, data and platforms.

This will involve the use of IBM Cloud Paks, which runs on container platform OpenShift, software from IBM subsidiary Red Hat.

In a press release, Raman Venkatraman, Global Head - HiTech & Professional Services Industry Unit, TCS, said: “TCS has been partnering with leading corporations in their growth and transformation journeys, helping them accelerate their application modernization and cloud migration initiatives with its Machine First™ approach. The outcome is a robust, flexible and future-ready digital core that enhances the enterprise’s resilience and adaptability. We are investing in our alliance with IBM to co-create accelerators and other assets to further enhance the speed to market of our customers’ modernization initiatives and drive their transformation to become cognitive ready enterprises leveraging the new IBM public cloud ecosystem.”

IBM’s Cloud Paks include solutions for applications, data, integration, automation, multi-cloud management and security to help clients move enterprise applications to IBM’s public cloud.

“This collaboration with TCS can help businesses accelerate their digital transformation by developing cloud-based technologies leveraging Red Hat OpenShift,” said Bob Lord, Senior Vice President, Cognitive Applications, Blockchain and Ecosystems, IBM. “TCS’ experience in IT consulting across industries combined with IBM’s cloud platform and Cloud Pak solutions can help clients speed their journeys to the cloud.”

Recently, IBM also said it would no longer pursue the development, research or offering of facial recognition and analysis software, with a letter from the company’s CEO to the United States Congress saying: “IBM firmly opposes and will not condone uses of any technology, including facial recognition technology offered by other vendors, for mass surveillance, racial profiling, violations of basic human rights and freedoms, or any purpose which is not consistent with our values and Principles of Trust and Transparency.”
