Consulting, technology and outsourcing services provider, Capgemini, has dedicated more global resources to help enterprise customers build and migrate applications on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Capgemini shares a longstanding relationship with AWS, which dates back to 2008, with both businesses working to bring solutions to enterprise customers leveraging Capgemini’s industry expertise coupled with AWS’s technology such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Redshift.
As part of its extended Cloud services program, which includes Cloud advisory, migration and managed business services, ‘Capgemini Cloud Choice with Amazon Web Services’ will see Capgemini further invest in its dedicated migration factory, leverage AWS technology and develop sector-specific IP solutions hosted on AWS.
It is enabled through collaboration with a broad ecosystem of Cloud partners, and includes a range of services: business Cloud assessment and strategy, proof of concepts, migrating applications to the Cloud, Platform as a Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Business Process-as-a-Service and cybersecurity.
The Capgemini migration factory for AWS, in Chennai and Bangalore, will support customers’ migration of enterprise applications to the AWS Cloud.
The company said more than 1000 professionals are anticipated to be trained across India, the UK, the US, Netherlands and France by the end of 2016. The migration factory will use the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) planning tool as part of its methodology to enable enterprises to migrate workloads faster and more efficiently to the AWS Cloud.
Capgemini Cloud Services global leader, Franck Greverie, said a key goal of Capgemini’s increased focus on AWS will be to develop Cloud advisory, migration to AWS and managed offerings specifically for the financial services sector, based on Capgemini IP hosted on the AWS Cloud.
"The continued execution of our client-centric strategy demands even more targeted solutions and responses for our clients' most challenging business demands.
“Cloud Choice with AWS combines the strength of Capgemini's Cloud Services global capabilities and delivery assets with the on-going technology innovation from AWS to continue to develop and deliver the right Cloud solutions to our collective clients with speed, predictability, risk mitigation and sustainable business impact," he said.
AWS worldwide partner ecosystem vice-president, Terry Wise, said the company is delighted to be working with Capgemini as it expands its commitment to AWS customers including a dedicated migration factory.“With our respective strengths and methodologies, Capgemini and AWS help enterprise customers become more agile in building and migrating applications, thereby accelerating their transformation to the AWS Cloud,” Wise added.
