Under the right circumstances, leveraging the fast developing cloud computing market has the potential to create significant value for enterprise customers in terms of scale, flexibility, reducing time to market, environmental efficiency and given the economic climate, perhaps the most important feature of reduced capital expenditure.
Capgeminiâs new Cloud Computing Center of Excellence will initially focus on three enterprise use cases: MicrosoftÂ® Sharepoint in the cloud, OracleÂ® ERP in the cloud, and Application Development and Testing in the cloud. Capgemini has so far conducted successful pilots of cloud computing capability for all three use cases on the Amazon Web Services platform.
In order to help enterprise customers understand cloud computing and define relevant business opportunities, Capgemini will be offering cloud computing workshops built around its tried and tested Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE*) methodology.
âWe want every business to understand the benefits of cloud computing and the mature services that Amazon Web Service deliversâthat they can save money without giving up speed, reliability, flexibility, and performanceâand to be able to get up and running with our services quickly and easily,â said Adam Selipsky, Vice President of Product Management and Developer Relations for Amazon Web Services. âCollaborating with Capgemini to help them offer their enterprise clients the benefits of cloud computing through Amazon Web Services helps us achieve this goal.â
"This is a ground-breaking partnership that clearly demonstrates Capgeminiâs strategy to always support its clientsâ transformation with the most efficient innovations in the marketâ said Paul Spence, Head of Outsourcing, Capgemini. âThe benefits of the Capgemini Cloud capability will be particularly relevant in todayâs economic climate and we want our clients to be able to take advantage of early providers such as Amazon Web Servicesâ.
