Tech Mahindra has announced an expansion of its strategic collaboration with AT&T to accelerate its IT network application, shared systems modernization and movement to the cloud. Tech Mahindra will take charge of many of the applications which support AT&T's network and shared systems.
The agreement is a multi-year one which will enable AT&T to focus on core objectives, including having the most advanced software defined 5G network, and migrate the majority of its non-network workloads to the public cloud by 2024. This comprehensive program will help drive sustainable operational improvement across the network and software development domains.
Together, AT&T and Tech Mahindra aim to improve the agility in rolling out and supporting networks of the future, while improving returns on investment through the use of technology-led transformation. Both the companies will integrate several world class technologies and platforms in areas like artificial intelligence, DevOps, data analytics and 5G.
CP Gurnani, managing director and CEO of Tech Mahindra said “This is a step towards elevating Tech Mahindra’s long standing strategic relationship with AT&T to help make the vision of a 5G-enabled future, a reality. As part of our TechMNxt charter, Tech Mahindra is betting big on 5G – network of the future, and is focused on technology-led innovation to enable digital transformation for our customers globally.”
The transformation roadmap also aims to optimize AT&T's IT application footprint by summing functionalities, while optimizing business costs, efficiencies and overall quality.
