Acquisitions Enrich Portfolio

DXC Technology is also focusing on acquisitions to expedite growth. This is helping it gain access to newer markets and technologies. We believe that the acquisitions will further strengthen DXC Technology’s position as one of the leading IT services providers in the world. Moreover, acquisitions have helped the company boost revenues amid intensifying competition in the cloud computing and cybersecurity market.

It acquired digital innovator, Luxoft, last year to establish presence in the autonomous vehicle market. Moreover, the buyout of customer experience solutions provider, Bluleader, in November last year was part of DXC Technology’s focus on growth and investment in SAP-based customer experience solutions.

DXC’s Automotive Push to Boost Growth

The company is trying to take advantage of the growing market for autonomous vehicles. Luxoft already has partners like Daimler, whose automotive platforms and IP include autonomous driving platforms, human machine interface, toolchain, digital cockpit, user experience, and telematics and IoT for connected vehicles.

Per MarketsandMarkets, the advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) market is projected to reach $134.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 20.7%, from 2019.

DXC Technology’s sound technical know-how in autonomous vehicle systems positions it to benefit immensely.

Notably, in January, Luxoft announced a partnership with LG Electronics to accelerate the development of large-scale series production systems, including digital cockpit systems, rear seat entertainment, cabin and center stack display, in-vehicle infotainment and others.

Moreover, the partnership with BMW pushes DXC Technology further into the market for self-driving cars and is expected to boost its Digital Solutions business.
