JG Summit cued for move to Azure with Infosys

Infosys in collaboration with Microsoft has partnered with JG Summit Holdings, to help formulate and execute the digital transformation strategy based on Microsoft Azure for the Philippine conglomerate.

The collaboration between Microsoft and Infosys will offer JG Summit seamless implementation and migration to Microsoft Azure cloud platform, to develop an agile and robust digital infrastructure for its business processes.  

Infosys will leverage its Infrastructure Management Solution Suite, a comprehensive hybrid IT management platform to build, adopt and govern hybrid cloud environments, thereby enhancing the overall end-user experience.

Also, Infosys will implement SAP S/4 HANA on Azure, and deploy Wingspan, its next-gen learning solution, to create a culture of learning and collaboration for the employees of JG Summit to help them upskill in this journey.

“Our objective is to embed digitisation into our core business strategy across units, subsidiaries, and affiliates,” said Lance Y. Gokongwei, president and CEO of JG Summit.

Ricky Kapur, VP of Sales, marketing and operations at Microsoft Asia Pacific, said JG Summit is pioneering the way organizations in the Philippines should look at their transformation journeys.

“Many companies don’t realise that the opportunity cost of not embracing digital technologies like cloud,” Kapur said.
