Hitachi ABB partners with HCL on digital foundation

Hitachi ABB Power Grids has partnered with HCL Technologies to develop a new greenfield digital foundation as part of its global transformation programme.

Hitachi ABB Power Grids was formed in 2020 as a joint venture between Hitachi and ABB to create a new global leader in pioneering power and digital technologies.

HCL will help the company establish a new independent IT organisation and reduce dependency on historic ABB IT services infrastructure.

HCL will provide hybrid cloud services, digital workplace Services, next-gen network services, unified service management and cybersecurity services.

“As a pioneering technology leader, we’re digitalising the entire energy value chain to make the world’s power grids stronger, smarter and greener. It’s crucial that this transformation also includes our internal operations, as well as the solutions we create for our clients,” said Michael Loechle, chief information officer, Hitachi ABB Power Grids. “We knew we needed to break away from the historic IT organisation we’d inherited, and HCL was the perfect strategic partner to help us create a next-generation operating model."
