HistoryEdit

CreationEdit

DXC Technology was founded in 2016[4] as the result of the spin-off of Hewlett Packard Enterprise's Enterprise Service segment[5] and its merger with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) and Electronic Data Systems (EDS). At the time of its creation, DXC Technology had revenues of $25 billion, 170,000 employees and operated in 70 countries[6].

The spinoff from HPE did not include two parts of the Enterprise Service segment: the Mphasis Limited reporting unit and the Communications and Media Solutions product group[5].

In India, the company started a three-year plan to reduce the number of offices in the country from 50 to 26, and to ask 5.9%, or 10,000, of its employees to leave[7].

In 2017, DXC split off its public sector segment and acquired two companies, Vencore Holding and Keypoint Government Solutions, to form a new company called Perspecta Inc.[8].

AcquisitionsEdit

In 2017, the company completed its first acquisition, buying Tribridge, a provider of Microsoft Dynamics 365 solutions[9].

In 2018, it announced several additional acquisitions, including Molina Medicaid Solutions (previously part of Molina Healthcare), Argodesign and two ServiceNow partners, BusinessNow and TESM[10].

SponsorshipsEdit

The company sponsors Team Penske[11] with 2016 Champion Simon Pagenaud, and in 2018 became title sponsor of IndyCar Series race DXC Technology 600.[12] DXC is also a partner of Australian Rugby Union team Brumbies.[13]
