It’s been a banner year for DXC Technology. In September 2021, President and CEO Mike Salvino and members of the DXC leadership team highlighted an incredible twelve months of partnerships and growth by ringing the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange.
The technology company has continued to expand its success in aiding global companies run mission-critical systems and operations, all while evolving its own ability to deploy crucial services across the enterprise technology stack.
The recognition of DXC’s growth is further underlined by the awards the organization has received from some of the world’s most steadfast and storied technology companies. In 2021, Dell Technologies recognized DXC as its Partner of the Year, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise cited DXC as its HPE Ezmeral Software Ecosystem Partner of the Year. Microsoft, too, awarded the company its FY21 Business Applications Inner Circle award.
Vice President and Global Head of Litigation Feras Sadik has no doubt played a vital part in both maintaining those partnerships and ensuring that DXC’s global reach always falls under the appropriate jurisdictions.
The litigation head got his start at firm WilmerHale and later accrued start-up experience prior to coming to DXC. While the company has provided an invaluable role in helping its partners harness the use of artificial intelligence and other leading technologies, Sadik has used AI within his own team as a means of identifying trends and implementing efficiencies on a global scale.
DXC’s reach is worth noting. The Fortune 500 global IT services leader spans more than 130,000 people and is active in more than 70 countries, and its partner list continues to grow in new ways. The sheer diversity of partners DXC services is a testament to its commitment to finding new and innovative solutions to help its clients, whatever the goal.
In August 2021, DXC and Mosaic Insurance announced the deployment of a new insurance technology platform aimed at increasing the speed of specialty insurance sales, underwriting, and service.
“Legacy-free technology is fundamental to Mosaic’s model, and our collaboration with DXC represents the first insurtech operating platform of its kind. We believe it gives us a tremendous advantage,” said Mitch Blaser, Mosaic’s cofounder and co-CEO, in a statement. “This open platform also delivers the benefit of leveraging the latest technology that’s very modular. You can look at what’s available in the market, put it on your platform because it suits your needs, and modify it easily. Overall, this allows for better decision-making and lower expense ratios.”
Even more recently, DXC, along with Lenovo, announced a partnership with Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan with the hope of harnessing assistive technology solutions to better aid those with disabilities. Scott-Morgan, affectionately known as the “world’s first human cyborg,” was diagnosed with motor neuron disease in 2017 and has been exploring ways to slow the disease’s progression since that time.
“The bedrock of our collaboration is a belief in the untapped potential of technology to unleash your dreams—whatever you are, whatever your background, whatever your circumstances, whatever your ambitions,” Scott-Morgan said in a statement. The doctor—whose mantra is “Add hope with AI and Robotics!”—will enlist DXC, Lenovo, and several other volunteers in the technology space to provide hardware, software support, integration, and AI to continue Scott-Morgan’s research.
