CSC (NYSE: CSC) and IBM (NYSE: IBM) have collaborated to support CSC clients moving to the cloud, who want a more secure, scalable, flexible information technology infrastructure at reduced operating costs, the companies said.
IBM said it will provide IBM Cloud for z, its cloud-managed services for z systems, and associated mainframe hardware, software, monitoring and governance support to CSC clients who are moving to the cloud.
The expanded alliance further advances CSC´s vision of the service-enabled enterprise and IBM´s as-a-service strategy, both designed to increase client choice in adopting emerging technologies. The as-a-service strategy provides consumption-based pricing for the IBM z Systems environment to give clients´ greater capital investment flexibility.
The agreement builds on an announcement earlier this year that the IBM Cloud is available to CSC clients as an option through CSC´s next generation IT services.
CSC provides next-generation technology services and solutions that leverage industry expertise, global scale, technology independence and an extensive partner community.
IBM global technology services offers end-to-end IT consulting and business services supported by global delivery network.
