Atos, AWS collaborate to help fast-track cloud migration

France-based IT consulting firm Atos is partnering with cloud computing services provider Amazon Web Services (AWS) in a bid to accelerate the cloud migration of clients with a comprehensive portfolio of outsourcing contracts.

The agreement — which will last for five years — gives AWS access to over 800 of Atos’ infrastructure services and customers globally. At the same time, Amazon’s cloud provider will train 20,000 of Atos’ employees on their technology.

According to Reuters, this collaboration is another step in Atos’ recovery after its stocks dropped by more than 70% over the last 12 months. 

Meanwhile, Atos co-CEO Nourdine Bihmane stated that working with AWS “sends a very strong message to my teams that the future will be made with ‘hyperscalers’ (AWS, Google, Microsoft’s Azure) and that we’ll have to start developing our services around their platform and not only in our datacenters.”

Bihmane added the partnership would probably lead to lower revenues but to better satisfaction of top clients and higher margins at the division.

Atos said it would consult with over 800 customers to offer a new hybrid cloud service with the option to move selected workloads to AWS.
