Businesses are moving towards the cloud, but they’re not doing it single-handedly. As part of its associate drive this week, AWS has teamed up with Accenture (ACN) to make an innovative business group intended to help businesses shift to the cloud.
In an declaration at AWS Invent on Wednesday, Accenture COO Omar Abbosh said that originally the Accenture AWS Business Group will propose cloud migration and big data examination, with a variety of services in other areas being added in excess of time, as well as exploring the expansion of services around the Internet of Things (IoT) and Security on the AWS Cloud.
Accenture lately acquired Cloud Sherpas in order to level its cloud consulting capacity, boosting its Accenture Cloud First Applications group.
The group brings together devoted professionals from both company with skill in cloud solutions architecture and improvement, selling, trade, and business development. It will build up a suite of services that contain application migration services, building design and application growth for the AWS Cloud.
Abbosh told in the meeting at the AWS keynote that AWS and Accenture will be putting jointly a set of capabilities and contributions born in the cloud, which accompaniments Accenture’s cloud-first approach.
As part of the statement, Accenture is teaching 1,000 employees and certifying 500 of them on AWS, Abbosh told.
Accenture and AWS have worked mutually for almost 10 years, collaborating on end-to-end cloud movement and management services previous year, counting Discovery Networks International and Wire and Wireless Co as clients.
