A quiet revolution

Zafar Anjum | July 12, 2010
Indian IT company HCL, focused on 'transformational outsourcing', is trying to break the mould and shape a new destiny for itself as the brain behind new technologies, and in a seemingly historical move, is helping the ailing Japanese electronics giants to stand up on their feet once again. How is HCL doing this?

To illustrate, HCL is investing in seven core engineering markets, four verticals cloud, mobility, sustainability and green, and convergence, and three product horizontalsdevice to device communication, device and remote management and product validation suite. HCL is building more than 20 solutions and IPs in these areas to offer a differentiable platform for our customers. Solutions include a unified communication platform, remote diagnostic reusable module, a telematics platform and test platforms in multiple verticals. Some of the key HCL IPs today are: Agora (HCL SaaS platform), Nimbo (private cloud enablement solution), Cirrus (Microsoft Azure enablement solution), Athena (sentiment analytics solution), Retail Track and Trace solution, UECPX (unified communications platform), ASPIRE (product portfolio management system), Telematics platform, H-PAC (Aerospace verification platform), among others.

Outside IPs and frameworks, HCL invests in domain-specific quality certifications so that our engineering processes are aligned to the customers needs. HCL Technologies was the first Indian company to be certified for AS9100 (Aerospace) and ISO13485 (Medical).

Another area of differentiation is investment in test and certification facilities. HCL set up the first private 10m EMI/EMC chamber in India so that we can extend our services to include product certification thereby reducing supply chain issues and time-to-market constrains for our customer. Our investment of more than US$10 million includes product certification to all major global markets.
