Infosys, AWS to push cloud biz to financial firms in EMEA regions

Infosys has entered into a Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services Inc (AWS) in a bid to provide technology transformation and industry-specific solutions to financial organisations across the EMEA region.

The three-year partnership is set to see both firms deliver support to financial organisations as they look to aid their cloud adoption journeys by leveraging industry proven capabilities to deliver specialised end-to-end cloud migration and modernisation service.

Companies which are supported by joint investments into go-to-market and delivery capabilities across the EMEA region are set to benefit as a result of this, as Infosys and AWS use their combined industry expertise to ease their cloud transformation.

Users will benefit from the combined force of AWS’s transformative cloud services, Infosys’s domain knowledge and delivery, and Infosys Capital Markets’ expertise in business model transformation and application modernisation, thus ensuring operational efficiency.

Under the umbrella of Infosys Cobalt, a comprehensive suite of services, solutions, and platforms for accelerating cloud adoption, this collaboration will focus on delivering industry-specific use cases. Leveraging AWS’s cloud-native innovation, including generative AI and data analytics, will allow customers to benefit from production-ready shared toolsets and certified architectural and security blueprints, accelerating adoption while ensuring compliance.

The collaboration will also facilitate skill sharing between AWS and Infosys, ensuring a customer-centric journey focused on outcome-based delivery, technical alignment, and risk reduction.

Dennis Gada, Executive Vice President, Global Head of Banking & Financial Services, Infosys, said, “AWS is a pioneer in cloud innovation, and by bringing together our expertise in delivering technology transformation at scale and our unwavering customer centric approach, we are excited to bring a comprehensive and industry-leading offering to our financial services clients in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
