Cutting through the press release haze, which seems particularly thick on this one, the Microsoft-Infosys alliance was reaffirmed as Jean-Philippe Courtois, president of Microsoft International, inaugurated the Catalytic IT concept center on the Infosys campus in Bangalore, India.
This state-of-the-art concept center has been established to provide customers with an informative and interactive experience wherein they can envision, architect and evaluate Catalytic IT solutions.
The Catalytic IT solution and services suite addresses four pivotal IT business issues: legacy modernization, connected business, infrastructure optimization and enterprise resource planning (ERP) consolidation. Over 30 intellectual property assets, service offerings, blueprints and award-winning solutions enable transformation.
And what exactly is Catalytic IT? The short explanation:
Catalytic IT combines Infosys’ consulting, research, intellectual property and project methods with the latest Microsoft application platform, which includes Windows Server System™, the Microsoft Office system and Visual Studio® development tools.
