Together, Infosys and AWS will enable clients to move enterprise workloads including mainframe and enterprise resource planning (ERP) to the AWS Cloud. 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.
Yesterday's legacy technologies are challenging today's enterprises on several fronts. Legacy deployments are increasingly difficult and costly to improve and maintain, hindering the delivery of new business applications and preventing companies from innovating rapidly. The AWS Cloud infrastructure changes this equation by allowing businesses to reduce IT spend while enabling the realization of new IT innovations, all while reducing infrastructure spending.
Infosys and AWS are focusing on workload migration solutions (SAP and other Enterprise workloads), mainframe and legacy modernization services to move complex legacy workloads, and data & analytics solutions including hybrid analytics cloud platform and analytics as a service. Additionally, this relationship 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), an industry-leading data and analytics platform that helps enterprises leverage their data assets for innovation and enhance business growth.
As part of this collaboration, Infosys is creating a dedicated AWS Cloud Center of Excellence cutting across all Infosys Service lines, and Infosys will employ 5,000 AWS-trained and 2,500 AWS-certified resources focused on the entire portfolio of AWS services. 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.
