World leader in transport and energy infrastructure Alstom on Tuesday announced that it had entered into a strategic partnership with Infosys Technologies in global research and development (R&D), engineering and engineering IT services.

This partnership envisages substantial strategic investments over the next five years to develop next generation solutions for the power sector, according to a statement issued here.

Under the partnership, Infosys will provide support to Alstom Power's global business units in core business areas including product development, simulation, product lifecycle management (PLM), and engineering IT. It will also support Alstom in building knowledge management processes for its design and engineering teams.

This collaborative operating model will enable Alstom to benefit from faster time-to-market for new products, customisation and adaptation of existing products for emerging markets, while also sustaining its current offerings.

“We see this long-term technological partnership with Infosys, a leader in IST, as one of the key drivers to developing the next generation of Alstom's power solutions. Given our experience with Infosys and our confidence in their strong competencies, they are a natural partner of choice,” Philippe Joubert, President, Alstom Power, said.

This engagement builds upon the existing relationship between Alstom and Infosys, which began in 2005 with the establishment of the Alstom R&D Centre at the Infosys campus in Mysore and now extends to all of Alstom Power's business units.

“Infosys has invested in engineering and technology-specific centres-of-excellence to support Alstom Power globally. As Alstom Power strengthens its focus on emerging markets, we have been able to combine our deep understanding of their business and engineering processes with our extensive knowledge of these markets to function as an innovation hub for Alstom,” B. G. Srinivas, Member of Infosys' Executive Council, said.
