Capgemini is expanding its collaboration with Amazon Web Services by dedicating more global resources to help customers build and migrate applications on the cloud service.
This comes as part of the Capgemini migration factory for AWS in Chennai and Bangalore, which will support the migration of enterprise applications to the AWS cloud. It is expected that over 1000 professionals will be trained to help support migration across the UK, India, the US, Netherlands and France by the end of the year.
Migration is helped by using the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework planning tool as part of the migration factory’s methodology.
The reason why Capgemini is placing an increased focus on AWS is partly to do with the success that the public cloud leader has experienced and forms part of the ‘Cloud Choice’ programme. This programme aims to help enterprises use the cloud to transform business performance.
One of the goals of this is to develop cloud advisory, migration to AWS and managed offerings that are specifically focused on the financial services sector; this is based on the Capgemini IP that is hosted on the AWS cloud.
Capgemini’s Insurance Connect is one offering that is already available in this area. The service offers a managed business service insurance platform that aims to enable core processing, digital services and insights and analytics on AWS.
According to the consulting company, asset-intensive industries such as energy and utilities will benefit from the extension of the relationship. This is because the company offers a Digital Industrial Asset Lifecycle Management as a managed business service built on AWS. While this is an on-premises offering, it is not also available on AWS Cloud, this is so that it can be up and running in a short period of time.
Franck Greverie, Capgemini‘s Global Leader for Cloud Services, said: "The continued execution of our client-centric strategy demands even more targeted solutions and responses for our clients’ most challenging business demands."
The consulting company has had a long relationship with AWS dating back to 2008.
