HCL AXON, the Enterprise Application Services division of HCL Technologies Ltd (HCL), a leading global IT service provider, announced its participation as a diamond-level exhibitor at the SAPPHIRE® NOW and SAP® TechEd 2012 conferences, being held from Nov. 13-16 in Madrid, Spain. During this annual event, named as the “most innovative meeting of 2012” by BizBash magazine, HCL AXON will run several demos and speaking sessions, showcasing the latest developments in HCL AXON’s solutions and demonstrating how customers can further enhance their investments in SAP solutions. HCL AXON will be in attendance with more than ten of its clients from the financial services, manufacturing and life sciences industries.
“HCL AXON experts at SAPPHIRE NOW will be presenting best practices and tips on how to increase operational efficiencies,” said Paul Knowles, Executive Vice President, Europe and Africa, HCL AXON. “Our close alignment with SAP is an integral part of our strategy, offering our customers state-of-the-art business transformation solutions to drive continued business benefits and success in Europe and Africa.”
HCL AXON will be showcasing its capabilities in support of SAP solutions within the Mobility Innovation Center at the event. Some of the demos HCL will focus on include Mobility Consumer Energy Management (mCEM) for the utilities industry, Mobile Service and Asset Management (mSAM) and iHostess for the airline industry.
HCL AXON has achieved significant mobility deployments, including HCL’s mobile policing solution, which has successfully been deployed to over 8,000 officers across a number of UK police forces. The solution links some 42 local and national back-office police systems, databases and business processes. This allows officers to work using mobile devices in the community for at least 80 percent of their time without having to return to the station. The service is currently being enhanced to include fingerprinting and image matching with faster real-time enquiry and data analysis. HCL AXON is working with an international telecoms provider to release a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) version for both mobile policing and health care working.
“Anyone can write a mobile app, but HCL AXON is able to weave together ingredients like apps, platforms, back-office systems and business processes to produce effective, real-world mobile solutions,” said Jon Cassidy, Head of Mobility Solutions, HCL AXON. “Our experience working for employees, consumers, service engineers and police officers demonstrates this ability.”
In support of the SAP® Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) application, HCL AXON established a European Centre of Excellence for SAP’s visual enterprise applications. This will generate multiple use cases in new product development, service and asset management, manufacturing and sales and marketing.
“SAP’s interactive 3D visual enterprise applications allow companies to provide a window to all the information they need, empowering people, anytime, anywhere,” said David Green, Lead, PLM/Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Capability, HCL AXON. HCL AXON has also supported an event with SAP on SAP’s visual enterprise applications and will be at the BMW IT Fair in Munich later in the year demonstrating these applications.
In addition, HCL AXON has entered into a global partnership with SuccessFactors, an SAP company and a global market leader in cloud-based business execution software. Under this alliance agreement, HCL AXON will provide implementation services, license referrals, and a general operating program to customers in North America, Europe, Latin and South America, Asia Pacific and India. The partnership will enable HCL AXON to deliver some of the latest available technologies in HCM to customers. The success of HCL AXON’s HCM practice has been illustrated through three significant industry awards this year.
In recognition of its adherence to SAP’s quality standards, HCL AXON has recently been awarded a bronze SAP Quality award for its implementation of SAP solutions at a leading European consumer media publishing group.
