Infosys Ltd and Microsoft have entered into a multi-year strategic engagement with Ausgrid, the largest electricity distributor on Australia’s east coast, to accelerate its cloud transformation journey and establish Ausgrid as a leading digital utility. This programme will further Ausgrid’s vision to connect communities and empower lives with a focus on affordability, reliability and sustainability, Infosys said.
“With over 4 million Australians relying on our services every day, it is essential we are maintaining our high standard of reliability and connectivity, as well as delivering on the expectations of Australian communities.
Accelerating our cloud transformation journey in partnership with Infosys and Microsoft allows us to improve the reliability of the network, keep downward pressure on electricity prices and bring new services to market at speed and in a cost-effective manner,” said Nick Crowe, acting chief information officer, Ausgrid.
Cloud adoption is a crucial enabler for Ausgrid to increase the agility, security, and resilience of business operations. Infosys said the cloud programme is designed to reduce Ausgrid’s cost of ownership and improve the performance of its IT systems and applications.
