[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Capgemini and EMC have expanded their global alliance with a strategic go-to-market agreement to expand operations in Brazil, and work collaboratively to deliver cloud solutions.

Capgemini and EMC will deliver a portfolio of end-to-end As-a-Service cloud offerings designed for specific vertical market segments. A new dedicated Integrated Solutions business unit will be operated by Capgemini Brasil to bring these cloud solutions to the Brazilian market.

The integrated cloud-based services will focus on vertical markets including agribusiness and banking and will include foundational services such as Storage as a Service, Backup as a Service, and Archive as a Service; and transformational services including SAP as a Service, Testing Platform as a Service, and Enterprise Content Management as a Service.

Capgemini’s relationship with EMC dates back to 2002 when the companies began offering joint pay-as-you-go storage services. Capgemini has been an EMC Global Alliance Partner since the program’s inception in 2008, and the two companies formed a strategic alliance in 2011.
