Capgemini and VMware to Create Business Cloud Orchestration Solutions to Accelerate the Customer Journey Towards IT as a Service

Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, and VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced they have expanded their strategic partnership to jointly develop new solutions. The move will extend Capgemini’s service integration, aggregation and orchestration platform by leveraging VMware’s industry leading cloud management offerings. This expanded partnership reflects Capgemini’s and VMware’s vision of how IT organizations are evolving in the cloud era. The new solutions will help customers more easily achieve IT as a Service by improving the way they manage cloud consumption across multiple providers and operators with policy-based service provisioning, data sovereignty protection and improved time to value for cloud adoption. The expanded partnership brings together VMware’s virtualization and cloud management solutions with Capgemini’s expertise in service integration, aggregation and orchestration. The new solutions from Capgemini and VMware will help enterprises worldwide simplify cloud management complexity, maximize operational efficiency and increase IT and business agility, while improving quality of service.

These new solutions, which are a key component of Capgemini’s Orchestration Platform, will combine Capgemini’s market-leading service integration solution, as well as Capgemini’s service aggregation and orchestration solutions, with VMware vCloud® Automation Center™, vCenter™ Operations Management Suite™ and VMware IT Business Management Suite™. As a result, enterprises will be able to more rapidly create and deliver new business services while transforming their IT infrastructure and modernizing their existing applications.

For instance, an enterprise marketing director seeking a new application for business analysis and operations management will have the ability to access a robust set of pre-packaged solutions that align to overall business policies and specific marketing needs, eliminating time-consuming background research, procurement and provisioning. Through the end-user service portal, the marketing director will be able to select the best provider and solution in accordance with business goals, policies and budget requirements. This enables IT and the business to more effectively manage usage, quality and costs of available services, while dramatically improving time to market.

In addition, the joint solutions are designed to improve financial and service level management of cloud services and providers via a real-time dashboard, that can provide CFOs with visibility into LOB usage and IT spend. Similarly, CIOs will gain transparency into overall application usage, allowing for greater control over the support of business processes and enabling true collaboration across the enterprise ecosystem. The platform will also allow businesses to consume services in a rapid and efficient manner.

In order to support a globally connected workforce, cloud solutions that are efficient, effective and bring real-time business insights are essential,” comments Raf Howery, Senior Vice President and Head of Infra Strategy and Ecosystem for Capgemini. “Expanding our VMware partnership with the introduction of our new business cloud solution is a key part of our cloud orchestration strategy, allowing enterprises to better manage the complexity of their IT transformation journey. It will enable them to transition to cloud with greater flexibility and simplicity and to obtain resources across legacy, public, private or hybrid environments. They will see an immediate business impact.”

“VMware Cloud Management solutions have been designed to meet the demands of IT-as-a-Service – self-service, scale, velocity of change, shared infrastructures – as well as the modern applications they support. This industry leading cloud management solution, along with Capgemini’s power and expertise to implement large-scale successful enterprise solutions significantly expands our partnership and joint value for our customers,” said Ramin Sayar, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cloud Management Business Unit, VMware. “I am excited about our joint investment and strategy, which will span across multiple business and technology practices, and will provide unique and differentiated value to the industry and our enterprise customers.”
