Infosys Teams with AWS To Ease Cloud Migration

Infosys Ltd., in a new strategic alliance with Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), is aiming to help enterprises smooth the transition to cloud computing.

To do that, Infosys will provide a suite of technologies hosted on AWS, focusing on: workload migration solutions (such as SAP and other enterprise workloads); services to modernize complex mainframe and legacy workloads; and solutions centered on data and analytics, such as hybrid cloud analytics and analytics as a service.

"Together, Infosys and AWS will enable clients to move enterprise workloads including mainframe and enterprise resource planning (ERP) to the AWS Cloud," Infosys said in a statement last week. "Infosys will also leverage AWS's offerings around analytics to provide deep, actionable insights and enable enterprises to gain competitive advantage in their industries. Infosys will also support enterprises in their transition from legacy technologies to the modern, innovative AWS Cloud."

Another aspect of the pact will see Infosys providing a dedicated AWS Cloud Center of Excellence intersecting with all of the company's service lines, employing thousands of AWS-trained and AWS-certified resources targeting AWS' services.

"AWS works with many large, complex enterprise organizations that are looking to transform their business by leveraging the AWS Cloud," said AWS exec Mike Clayville. "The strategic collaboration with Infosys will help accelerate these organizations' legacy workload migrations to the cloud by empowering them to rapidly achieve the agility benefits of moving to AWS. Customers will now have more streamlined access to several innovative cloud computing solutions that stand to transform and modernize their enterprise."
