In the midst of their AWS re:Invent series, Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company, and Slalom LLC, a global business and technology consulting firm, recently announced a multi-year extension to their strategic collaboration agreement between companies.
The two companies will work together to develop vertical solutions and accelerators on AWS for clients in the energy, financial services, healthcare, life sciences, public sector, and media and entertainment industries, providing specialized cloud migration and modernization services end-to-end to help accelerate their journeys to the cloud.
Brad Jackson, CEO of Slalom, pointed out:
This agreement enhances our relationship with AWS and serves as a key growth driver for Slalom’s business over the next three years.
In addition to supporting the accelerated growth in the slalom markets in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Japan and New Zealand, AWS and Slalom will co-create go-to-market strategies in 2023 and make joint investments in support of the continued expansion of Slalom in Ireland and the Netherlands, followed by additional countries in Latin America, Asia Pacific and Europe over the next three years.
In addition, the two firms announced the presentation of the AWS | Slalom Launch Centers that help companies accelerate their business transformations and modernize information technology services.
Supporting more than 160 users over the past three years, the Launch Centers provide customers access to a global team of AWS experts who help customers achieve their desired results with the cloud, and the expertise of Slalom in business transformation, software engineering, and analytics capabilities.
“Through the expansion of our AWS practice, we will be better equipped to help our customers find new ways to use AWS technologies to dream bigger, move faster, and build better tomorrows for all,” added Jackson.
