Capgemini Partners with AWS
Capgemini is launching a strategic initiative to aggressively expand its cloud capabilities with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Geared first toward European clients, Capgemini and AWS will focus on SAP migrations, mass application migrations, accelerated data center modernization, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.
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. It will also open new business opportunities for companies through the implementation of artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and innovative customer interfaces.
The first focus of the initiative will be on:
- Migration of enterprise SAP implementations to AWS;
- Accelerated application renewal through mass application migration to deliver managed services and solutions on AWS and build new cloud native applications leveraging the extensive AWS ecosystem;
- Accelerated data center modernization strategies leveraging VMware cloud on AWS to deliver an end-to-end hybrid cloud solution; and
- Support for European and global enterprises to help meet regulatory compliance needs and use data more strategically.
As part of this new focus, Capgemini plans to build end-to-end solutions and accelerators with AWS, leveraging the global network of Capgemini's Applied Innovation Exchanges (AIEs) to infuse automation, artificial intelligence, and machine learning into customer solutions. One example is the integration of Amazon Alexa with customer data to create both new interactions and increased customer satisfaction in the hospitality sector.
This initiative with AWS builds on the two organizations' 10-year relationship. Capgemini is a Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and an AWS Managed Service Partner.
"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," said Aiman Ezzat, group executive board member and chief operating officer at Capgemini, in a statement.
"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," Andy Isherwood, vice president and managing director of EMEA at Amazon Web Services, said in a statement.
