NOIDA - November 24th, 2009 - HCL Technologies Limited ('HCL'), a leading global IT services provider, today announced its strategic partnership with Savvion, the trailblazing business process management company to extend its service focus into the Business Process Management (BPM)** space.

Through this partnership, both companies will now be able to help customers implement and optimize business processes across the organization. The BPM solutions enable visibility into extremely critical business processes such as order management, onboarding new clients and releasing & supporting products with an ability to track and measure these processes real-time.
