Capgemini Group strengthens Microsoft relationship

Paris, July 25, 2019 – Capgemini is expanding its relationship with Microsoft through a strategic initiative aimed at helping enterprises to accelerate their adoption of cloud technologies.

The new Enterprise Portfolio Modernization (EPM) initiative includes several solutions to support Capgemini’s Cloud and application development and maintenance (ADMNext) portfolio of assets and services. EPM optimizes enterprise applications and enterprise ERPs (enterprise resource planning) and reaps the benefits of cloud economics to achieve new business speed and agility. This new initiative focuses on four key solutions based on Azure: Modernize and Migrate Legacy Applications, Data Center Transformation, Develop Cloud-Native Applications and Migrate SAP applications to Azure.

Capgemini’s client, Coke One North America (CONA Services), a platform that provides each of the 12 largest Coca-Cola Company North American bottling partners with tools they need to collaborate as one company, chose to migrate its existing SAP BI environment to Azure to achieve business agility, security, cost savings, flexibility and high availability. This comprehensive migration, the biggest of its kind, led Capgemini to be recognized as the 2019 Microsoft SAP on Azure Partner of the Year.

Reinhard Meister, CEO CONA says, “We partnered with Capgemini because of their strong understanding of our business, how we operate, and their valuable expertise and resources. We saw a real commitment from both them and Microsoft; a clear demonstration of a successful partnership.”

Brad Little, Global Head of Applications Services including ADM and SAP for Capgemini said, “Our clients look to Capgemini for its global expertise in delivering digital transformation capabilities enabled by the cloud. With these new initiatives based on a range of Microsoft technologies, we are enabling new business agility for enterprises.’’

As a Microsoft Azure Expert and Managed Services Provider (MSP), the Capgemini Group has thousands of Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs) and Microsoft Azure cloud solution architects. Capgemini serves Microsoft-enabled enterprises in 35 countries across the Americas, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

Corey Sanders, CVP Solutions at Microsoft said, “Capgemini’s new Enterprise Portfolio Modernization initiative is a joint investment with Microsoft that empowers customers to achieve business speed and agility as they achieve their digital transformation goals. This work is a significant contributor to Capgemini winning SAP on Azure partner of the year, this year.”
