New initiative’s first focus to be on the European market
Capgemini is launching a Group strategic initiative to aggressively expand its cloud capabilities with Amazon Web Services (AWS), helping clients to increase their business insights, agility, security and cost effectiveness to drive improvements in their business performance. Increasing attention to the needs of European clients, Capgemini and AWS will focus on SAP migrations, mass application migrations, accelerated data center modernization, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Cloud has fundamentally changed the economic landscape for many enterprises. Faced with disruptions from both existing players and new competition in parallel industries, many enterprises are now under significant pressure to maintain and improve their competitive advantage. Earlier this year Capgemini found that cloud leaders are building more than 20% of their applications in the cloud, driven by the need to improve velocity, collaboration, and customer experience.
This new initiative combines AWS’s comprehensive ecosystem of cloud technologies with Capgemini’s global expertise in applications, on-premises infrastructure and cloud managed services to drive time-to-market reduction, productivity gains and cost savings. It will also open up new business opportunities for enterprises through the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and innovative customer interfaces.
This initiative with AWS builds upon the two organizations’ ten-year relationship. Capgemini is a Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and an AWS Managed Service Partner.
Aiman Ezzat, Group Executive Board member and Chief Operating Officer at Capgemini said, “Our clients look for global scale and excellence in digital transformation, enabled by cloud technologies. With a commitment to scaling our AWS capabilities we can bring to our clients’ digital journeys both operational efficiencies and the power of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning.”
Andy Isherwood, Vice President and Managing Director EMEA, Amazon Web Services, Inc. said, “Capgemini has already helped many customers leverage the scale, security, and agility of AWS services to innovate on the cloud. This new business group will help organizations of all sizes accelerate their adoption of cloud technologies, and we look forward to collaborating with them to help even more customers on their digital transformation journeys.”
