Capgemini, a leading IT consulting and outsourcing firm, has expanded strategic partnership with VMware to jointly develop new solutions that accelerate the deployment of IT as a Service.
The new solutions will be offered as a key component of Capgemini’s Orchestration Platform. They will combine Capgemini’s 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.
These 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 partnership will also help enterprises worldwide simplify cloud management complexity, maximize operational efficiency and increase IT and business agility, while improving quality of service, Capgemini said.
The service allows enterprises to more rapidly create and deliver new business services while transforming their IT infrastructure and modernizing their existing applications. They can get 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.
The joint solutions are also 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, the company said.
Additionally it allows CIOs to gain transparency into overall application usage, giving 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.
