November 8, 2019 GMT

TYSONS, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 8, 2019--

The acquisition of Virtual Clarity further positions DXC as a leading provider of IT Modernization services for applications and infrastructure and strengthens DXC’s ability to assess, design and manage transformations to cloud.

The company complements and enhances DXC’s capabilities in cloud, platforms and IT modernization, enabling DXC to help our clients with their digital transformation journey and improve their business outcomes.”

The addition of Virtual Clarity also builds on DXC’s acquisition earlier this year of Luxoft as clients increasingly are seeking industry specific application development and innovation as part of their IT modernization approach.

Founded in 2008, Virtual Clarity is comprised of a blend of enterprise IT experts with deep knowledge of modern tools, techniques and key industries – including Financial Services, Health Care, Manufacturing, and Telecommunications.

Together with DXC, we create an immensely powerful and compelling opportunity for clients to unlock new value and competitive agility across the enterprise. We will make a real difference for clients, partners and our industry.”
