“Intertoys accelerated their digital transformation through this partnership by successfully going live in 15 weeks”, said Robin Tichler atInterToys. “Not only were we able to go live so quickly, we were able to scale seamlessly to 3X transaction volumes, as families bought games and toys during the recent crisis.”
“The HCL Google Cloud Business Unit is enabling product collaboration across HCL Software and Google Cloud. The launch of HCL Commerce on Google Cloud is the first among a number of planned joint offerings built around application modernization, data center and database value unlock.” said Kalyan Kumar, CTO and Corporate Vice President, HCL Technologies.
