PCG Signs Strategic Collaboration Agreement With AWS

Numerous customers already rely on the expertise of Innovations ON, the AWS division of PCG (BU PCG X AWS), in cloud transformation, automation, and managed services. In addition to modern technological solutions, such as Kubernetes and Infrastructure-as-Code, the focus of the German firm, headquartered in Ulm, is on cloud migrations, operations, and application modernization.

“In 2018, the BU PCG X AWS Germany started with a clear goal: 100% focus on the AWS public cloud. Today, as part of Public Cloud Group, we are the enabler of digital transformation in the mid-market. We are very excited to further expand this expertise through a strategic collaboration with AWS,” explains Dagmar Ziegler, Managing Director of BU PCG X AWS Germany.

With the AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP program), BU PCG X AWS has been able to support a large number of medium-sized customers. “Migrations represent the first step into the world of cloud for many companies,” says Tom Simon, Managing Director BU PCG X AWS Germany. “We accompany and enable our customers to use cloud services and applications efficiently, and for future-oriented digital transformation. In doing so, we build on the close cooperation with AWS and the various certifications we have achieved in recent years. We are very proud of this development!”

Bundled expertise for the success of SMEs: focus on cloud migration, SaaS, and cloud transformation

To build on this development in the coming years, BU PCG X AWS and AWS itself entered into a strategic collaboration under the umbrella of the AWS programs for strategic collaborations in October 2022. In doing so, both companies seek to jointly develop offerings for cloud migrations, application modernization, business process digitalization, and software-as-a-service.

“The BU PCG X AWS took time to understand our goals and constraints in detail and were able to tailor our journey into AWS with skill and highly qualified support” explains Andrew Hobbs-Ray, CEO of Messer Business und IT Consulting, a client. “Thanks to their detail-oriented yet pragmatic approach, focusing on tangible deliverables, we were able to accelerate our cloud transformation.”

“We are happy to take our collaboration with BU PCG X AWS to the next level”, says Florian Hartwig, General Manager AWS Germany. “Digitalization of the German SMB (“Mittelstand”) sector is one of our country’s most important future tasks. With their comprehensive portfolio, BU PCG X AWS supports our customers with migrations to the AWS cloud, application modernization, digitalization of business processes as well as development of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. This agreement provides German Mittelstand customers with a competent one-stop-shop for a successful digitalization in the AWS cloud.”

As part of the multi-year Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA), BU PCG X AWS and AWS itself plan on working together to establish a dedicated SaaS factory for the development of new cloud-native applications and modernizing existing applications to benefit medium-sized business and companies in the DACH region.
