Rackspace has partnered with Tech Mahindra to drive cross-selling opportunities across both customer bases amid plans to increase digital deployments.
Terms of the alliance will see both parties combine on joint product and services offerings, while boosting Rackspace’s internal business applications and processes.
Through executing a new go-to-market commercial model, the cloud provider will also leverage Tech Mahindra’s expertise to enable customers to “close the gap” between cloud and digital transformation strategies.
“Our partnership with Tech Mahindra is a powerful combination,” said Subroto Mukerji, COO of Rackspace. “Their understanding of innovative and customer-centric IT experiences is uniquely complimentary to how Rackspace provides a Fanatical Experience.
“We believe that this will help generate industry leading technology services and platforms. With 121,000+ associates, working across 90 countries and helping 938 global customers, including Fortune 500 companies, this partnership will allow us to drive far more business impact for our customers.”
Delving deeper, the partnership will also provide improvements and efficiencies for running multiple Rackspace business applications and processes.
Mukerji said Rackspace will continue to own their application strategy and roadmap, while Tech Mahindra will bring “expertise and best practices” to deliver against this.
“Partnering with Rackspace to deliver digital transformation for our customers will allow us to provide the best business, program and portfolio strategies to build the next generation of innovative IT,” added Lakshmanan Chidambaram, president of Americas at Tech Mahindra.
