The technology consulting and data transformation consulting company, Mindtree is set to introduce a business unit centered on creating new solutions based on Microsoft technologies. This business unit will also contribute to skilling the staff across the Mindtree organizations globally.

The launch of a new unit is a part of the company’s initiative. The multi-tiered initiative speaks about supporting and fulfilling continuous demand for cloud solutions and services. The plans are to expand the Microsoft experience center and make optimal use of the skills academy to ensure that all technical professionals are proficient and certified on Microsoft Azure technologies.

“As long-standing partners, our mutual goal is to bring together our complementary strengths to deliver specialized capabilities, industry solutions and services that will help our customers get maximum value out of their investment in Microsoft technologies,” said Debashis Chatterjee, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Mindtree. “Today’s announcement broadens Mindtree’s reach and expertise within Microsoft’s business which continues to grow at scale and underscores the unwavering commitment that Mindtree has made to drive strategic work for common enterprise clients.”

The Microsoft’s partner-led model is of greater significance to the clients. It helps Mindtree deliver best-in-class, Azure-based solutions to drive clients’ digital transformation initiatives setting an example for those who refrain from adopting cloud technology.

“By enhancing the focus on a dedicated Microsoft business unit, Mindtree is taking a critically important step forward in our collaboration and making further investments in the Microsoft ecosystem,” said Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft. “As a result, enterprise customers will further benefit from the innovative products and services tailored to their digital and cloud transformation initiatives, as well as Mindtree’s world-class talent around the globe to develop and apply industry-specific solutions to solve customers’ business challenges.”

Overall, Mindtree’s strategy, in collaboration with Microsoft, is going to grow in three directions. It is laid down below:

  • Mindtree’s Microsoft go-to-market business unit, headquartered in Redmond, Washington, will offer continuous support in the client’s digital transformation journey.
  • There will be a 1,35,000 square foot Global Azure Experience Centre with a pool of talented professionals rendering the best cloud solutions to the clients.
  • A global Microsoft Excellence Academy will provide technical training and certifications on Azure Technologies to the members of Mindtree.
