New Delhi: IT major Infosys and Microsoft have entered into a multi-year strategic engagement with Ausgrid to accelerate the cloud transformation of the largest electricity distributor on Australia’s east coast.

This programme will further Ausgrid’s vision to connect communities and empower lives with a focus on affordability, reliability, and sustainability, Infosys said in a regulatory filing on Monday.

The cloud-driven transformation programme – launched in mid-2020 – is being delivered through a phased approach, leveraging a cloud management platform combined with managed services, it said.

“Our engagement with Ausgrid has expanded to include this strategic cloud transformation initiative, leveraging Infosys’ Cobalt ecosystem of platforms, solutions and services as well as our deep expertise in the utility industry,” Infosys Executive Vice President and Global Industry Leader (Communications, Media and Technology) Anand Swaminathan said.
