Technical Proficiency and Seamless Solutions Delivery among Selection Criteria

Paris, New York -- Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing services, announced today that its Financial Services Business Unit (FS SBU) has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Financial Services Competency status. This designation recognizes Capgemini for delivery of effective solutions delivered on the AWS Cloud such as Capgemini's Insurance Connect and Connected Banking, which are part of Cloud Choice, Capgemini's portfolio of services for delivering a cloud-first way of working for the enterprise.

AWS Financial Services Competency distinguishes Capgemini’s FS SBU as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that has demonstrated relevant technical proficiency and proven customer success while seamlessly delivering solutions within the AWS Cloud environment. Capgemini’s FS SBU earned competency status by demonstrating deep expertise in the AWS platform and undergoing an assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of its solutions.

"It is a special honor for Capgemini Financial Services Unit to be recognized as one of the first APN partners to achieve AWS Financial Services Competency status," said Thierry Delaporte, Head of Capgemini’s Global Financial Services Business Unit and Member of the Group Executive Board. "Achieving AWS competency status is especially meaningful for us as we see this as a validation of both the customer successes we have delivered in the AWS Cloud environment as well as our built-in-cloud solutions for banking and insurance clients."

Capgemini Cloud Choice with Amazon Web Services delivers a cohesive, end-to-end set of offerings to identify and move applications from on-premises infrastructure to the AWS Cloud. The AWS Cloud enables Capgemini to provide superior customer experiences in Financial Services regardless of channel with its Connected Banking and Capgemini Insurance Connect solutions. Connected Banking provides a full technology stack for greenfield banks on the AWS Cloud, integrating the Temenos core banking system with a dozen partners. Capgemini’s Insurance Connect is a subscription-based service hosted on the AWS Cloud for claims, policy, and billing that helps insurers leverage on-demand, pre-configured applications across the entire insurance lifecycle. This allows insurers to respond to new market opportunities, gain operational efficiencies, and focus on essential business activities, improving customer experience and brand differentiation

The AWS Cloud enables scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions for banking and payments, capital markets, and insurance organizations of all sizes, from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the Financial Services Partner Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
