Key Findings & Highlights
In FY 2014, HCL decided to accelerate the development of its analytics and data capabilities and took several measures, including regrouping related capabilities from several units such as its information lifecycle management (ILM, mainly around Informatica software products), its enterprise data warehouse (EDW) capabilities from its ADM units, and its SAP BO-related services from its Enterprise Application Services unit. This led to the creation of Business Analytics Services (BAS), a horizontal service line with full P&L, sales, and delivery responsibility.BAS also went through a reshaping of its service portfolio, enhancing its strengths in ILM and SAP with big data, advanced analytics, and visualization. BAS’ portfolio reshaping also came with an emphasis on new ISV partners (Cloudera, Hortonworks, Tableau Software, Qlik, Denodo) and on open source (the Apache Hadoop ecosystem including Splice Machine, and also MangoDB), building on its strengths with Informatica, SAS, SAP, IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Microstrategy, and Teradata. Because of the high client demand for big data, Cloudera and Hortonworks have become several of HCL’s most important partners. BAS has a headcount of ~5.5k (5% of HCL Tech’s headcount) and is one of HCL’s fastest-growing units (growing by 15% to 20% annually). It provides IT services and is not involved in BPS.
