Companies to deliver agile, end-to-end cloud migration solutions that
couple the power of the AWS cloud with DXC industry-based digital
services and intellectual property

New global DXC - AWS Integrated Practice will provide clients with
increased agility, innovation, and cost savings

DXC
Technology
(NYSE:DXC) and Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an
Amazon.com company (NASDAQ:AMZN), today announced a multi-year, global
agreement to build a new multi-billion dollar DXC - AWS Integrated
Practice that will deliver IT migration, application transformation, and
business innovation to global Fortune 1000 clients.

The DXC - AWS Integrated Practice will offer clients secure, cloud-first
solutions that combine the breadth and depth of cloud services offered
through AWS with DXC enterprise services to enable them to innovate in
their industries, be more agile, and better adapt to dynamic market
conditions with speed and at scale -- while also modernizing their
operations for a digital era.

DXC clients are global enterprises that are looking to accelerate their
digital transformations by migrating to AWS with DXC, leveraging the
trusted relationships they have relied on for years. The new
collaboration will focus on application migration, digital
transformation, and industry-specific services that optimize DXC's
industry intellectual property (IP) running on AWS, the world's leading
cloud.

About the Practice

The new DXC - AWS Integrated Practice builds on the existing DXC and AWS
relationship and is focused on enabling clients to easily migrate their
existing IT environments and applications to the cloud. It is a direct
response to growing client demand for integrated, highly-secure,
industry-based solutions that leverage the advanced cloud technologies,
reliability, scale, and pace of innovation of AWS. The practice is the
centerpiece of a far-reaching, multi-year agreement between the two
companies that also encompasses joint development, marketing, sales, and
delivery of AWS solutions.

"Today's agreement combines DXC's deep expertise in enterprise services
and industry-specific IP with the power of the AWS cloud to speed our
clients' digital transformations," said Mike Lawrie, chairman, president
and CEO, of DXC Technology. "In addition to driving new levels of
performance and productivity, clients will realize cost savings that can
be reinvested in game-changing digital technologies that benefit their
customers, employees, and all stakeholders."

"For many years, successful enterprises have relied on DXC's expertise
to manage their IT," said Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS. "This agreement
represents a commitment for both DXC and AWS to make it much easier to
enable long-time and newer DXC clients to take advantage of the Cloud
with the most functionality, the most innovation, the largest partner
ecosystem, and the most experience at helping companies run at scale—all
of which allows customers to access the best set of capabilities to
evolve and differentiate their customer experience."

For two decades Union Insurance Group has designed its policies to
specifically meet the unique needs of more than 6,000 labor
organizations. They have recently deployed DXC's Integral, an end-to-end
insurance solution that covers the entire insurance lifecycle, from
point of sale to claims and payouts, with functions accessed from a
single web portal, on AWS.

"Union Insurance has engaged DXC and AWS to work on Union's digital
transformation strategy in order to better serve and engage with Union's
clients and partners," said Anshul Srivastav, CIO of UAE-based Union
Insurance. "Digital transformation is a game changer and helps position
Union Insurance for continued success.

"We're excited about the power of DXC and AWS coming together to
accelerate our migration to the cloud," Srivastav continued. "Now, our
time-to-market with innovative products that are designed to thrill our
customers is almost real-time. As a result, a lot more new,
technology-based insurance products are getting rolled out and are
generating revenue for the company."

The DXC - AWS Integrated Practice will work to optimize DXC's AWS
offerings, with an initial focus on:

  • Managed security and compliance Services for AWS
  • Dedicated VMware Cloud on AWS migration solution
  • Analytics services on AWS
  • Application services for AWS
  • Mission critical support for SAP on AWS
  • DXC Managed Services for AWS is underpinned by DXC
    Bionix™
    , its digital-generation services delivery model that
    provides a comprehensive approach to intelligent automation at the
    scale.

"Public cloud adoption is accelerating in large part as enterprises
recognize that the cloud has become the launchpad for virtually every
new IT innovation in the last 24 months – including AI, blockchain,
quantum computing and more. Organizations not on the public cloud will
be increasingly isolated from the world of tech innovation," said Frank
Gens
, senior vice president and chief analyst at IDC. "Strong
partnerships, such as DXC Technology and AWS, will help turbocharge this
move to public cloud, while creating digital offerings that transform
organizations and enrich relationships with partners, customers, and
prospects."

DXC is already a Premier Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN)
and is an audited AWS Managed Service Provider, and holds multiple AWS
Migration Competencies demonstrating technical proficiency with proven

more than 8,000 AWS Business and Technical Professional Accreditations,
which is the most held by one company outside of AWS. In addition, DXC
holds more than 900 AWS certifications including associate and
