DXC Technology DXC recently announced that it is forming a new global DXC ServiceNow Strategic Business Group in collaboration with ServiceNow NOW to advance the transformation of enterprise operational services.

Through this alliance, DXC intends to offer cost-efficient and resilient technology services, built on its data-driven intelligent automation solution, Platform X, to enterprises to automate their service operations and meet customer requirements. The company has selected ServiceNow as its preferred workflow partner for Platform X.

DXC Platform X enables information technology (“IT”) professionals to detect and resolve abiding system lags quickly while automatically predicting and mitigating future business problems. This platform helps the company optimize by reducing costs and offering immediate benefits for future operational models, thus, helping enterprise customers achieve a state of ‘silent operations.’

DXC claims that this modernization approach will drive greater operational resilience and accelerate enterprise transformation by delivering better employee and customer experiences and increasing returns on investment.

Teaming up with ServiceNow and providing its Platform X solutions, DXC aims to become a leader in enterprise service management, expanding its global reach in the days ahead. The company is focusing on partnerships to enhance its offerings. It is digging deep to expand its networking-based infrastructure with the benefits of VMware’s hybrid cloud offerings, which aided it in strengthening its position in the virtualization server market.

Besides, DXC is in partnership with Amazon to develop cloud-based solutions for enterprise and public sector clients. We believe the company’s focus on entering into strategic partnerships will help it expand in the cloud computing space and garner additional revenues.

Currently, the company is focusing on the cloud computing market, cyber business and Big Data business. Clients are increasingly relying on cloud-based services as DXC makes the IT system more agile and productive, which leads to considerable cost savings. However, the segment is still underpenetrated.

Per Gartner, worldwide IT spending is anticipated to be $4.5 trillion in 2022, suggesting an increase of 5.1% from 2021. The research firm expects worldwide spending on IT services to grow 7.9% year over year to $1.28 trillion this year. Therefore, DXC, being a major player in the space, is anticipated to benefit from this untapped opportunity.
