IT consultancy firm, Infosys, has launched a global strategic initiative with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to transition infrastructure from on-premise to the Cloud.
Infosys will use AWS to host a suite of its technologies that it said will help enterprise customers securely adopt cloud-based systems swiftly.
The partnership will enable clients to move enterprise workloads including mainframe and enterprise resource planning (ERP) to the AWS Cloud.
Infosys said it will also leverage AWS’s insights to give enterprises customers a competitive advantage in their industries. Infosys will also support enterprises in their transition from legacy technologies to the AWS Cloud.
The two companies are focusing on workload migration solutions like SAP and other enterprise workloads, mainframe and legacy modernisation services to move complex legacy workloads, and data and analytics solutions including hybrid analytics Cloud platform and analytics-as-a-service.
The deal will include Infosys Assurance Suite that focuses on security, risk management, compliance and governance aspects of AWS deployment for customers and Infosys Information Platform (IIP).
As part of the initiative, Infosys is creating a dedicated AWS Cloud Center of Excellence and will employ 5,000 AWS-trained and 2,500 AWS-certified resources focused on the entire portfolio of AWS services.
Infosys said the AWS Cloud Center of Excellence, which has access to all the latest tools and technology from AWS, will constantly help create new enterprise transformation solutions leveraging the AWS Cloud and based on design thinking with Zero Distance to the customer.
