As of the end of June 2019, HCL Technologies (HCL) has officially closed the previously announced acquisition of select IBM products for security, marketing, commerce, and digital solutions.

The company is also introducing HCL Software, a new division that will operate this enterprise software product business and meet customer demand. 

A business unit of “Products and Platforms” (Mode 3), HCL Software has delivered more than 340 partner releases and more than 90 HCL releases, including such popular products as Informix 14.10, Domino 10, Workload Automation 9.5. 

The division aims to reshape the company’s enterprise software business, focusing on innovation and delivery.

“We are excited for the next phase of the HCL Software Business Unit and are confident that these products will see good growth trajectory backed by our commitment to investing in product innovation coupled with our strong client focus and agile product development,” says HCL Technologies president and CEO C Vijayakumar.

Our customers will be the ultimate beneficiaries, and we look forward to collaborating with them. We are also pleased to welcome the IBM employees who are joining HCL Technologies.”
