The Bangalore-based company has also entered into a global pact with Chinese multinational Huawei to jointly offer cloud, big data and communication solutions to enterprise customers. Under this partnership, the two companies will explore setting up a joint lab in China to enable better deliver in their selected areas of partnership.
While Infosys has been a system integration (SI) partner for US-based Microsoft for a decade, the company has now expanded the partnership to strengthen its capabilities for analytics and other technology areas. Infosys will also set up a global center of excellence for Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, capable of training over 1,000 engineers by the end of financial year 2015.

"This collaboration offers enterprises easy access to an analytics platform without the need for big investments and extended time-to-market."
The expansion of scope of partnership with Hitachi Data Systems will enable Infosys to add next-generation infrastructure and data center transformation solution capabilities. The new solutions will facilitate smooth transition of clients' IT infrastructure to cloud-based environments, and would be tailored to meet refresh cycles of enterprise data centers.
Infosys said, it will also set up a center of excellence to co-create pay-per-use solutions with Hitachi Data Systems.
"Growing our partnership with Hitachi Data Systems will enable us to bring together our complementary capabilities around cloud and big data to help our customers enhance their IT infrastructure with new technology solutions," said U B Pravin, chief operating officer at Infosys. " Infosys and Hitachi Data Systems will help enterprises implement infrastructure and data center solutions faster, and at lower costs."
Under the new partnership with Huawei, the two companies will jointly develop IT solutions that combine Huawei's cloud infrastructure and Infosys' global IT services expertise. The solutions developed under this partnership will target enterprise customers looking to modernise their operations by leveraging cloud infrastructure.
"Infosys is focused on helping customers succeed with software and services to both grow their business in new ways and to achieve operational efficiencies," said Infosys' Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Vishal Sikka. " We are really excited to partner with Huawei to bring the power of Huawei's cloud infrastructure and communication technologies to our joint customers, so that they can efficiently achieve this dual objective."
