PwC is joining forces with Amazon Web Services (AWS), the cloud computing division of the e-commerce giant. In a press release, the Big Four firm announced a “three-year strategic collaboration agreement with AWS with [the] goal to deliver $800m [€746.88m, editor’s note] of value to clients” globally.
“This collaboration will strengthen PwC’s offerings across a wide array of services, including cloud migration and modernisation, data and analytics, cybersecurity and risk, customer experience, managed services and climate reporting and transition to net zero,” said the company.
Asked about the precise terms of the agreement, including financial terms, PwC had not responded to Delano’s sister publication Paperjam by the time of publication.
PwC and AWS are already working together, in particular through Amazon Bedrock (a foundation model API, or application programming interface, service for integrating artificial intelligence into businesses). “The newest collaboration with AWS has already helped more than 200 of PwC’s Fortune 500 clients," adds the Big Four firm. PwC has 5,200 AWS-certified professionals worldwide and 15 AWS ambassadors.
Luxembourg professionals included
The new partnership is part of PwC’s global strategy “The New Equation,” which aims to deliver human-led, technology-enabled solutions. “One area of focus will be on tools for real-time monitoring and detection of complex cybersecurity attacks,” said the firm’s press release.
The collaboration includes AWS and PwC professionals from 16 countries... including Luxembourg. The others are Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Poland, Romania, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
What effects are expected in the grand duchy? PwC had not responded by the time of publication.
“For both PwC Luxembourg and AWS the goal is clear--to enhance the support we provide our clients in transforming and improving business performance in Luxembourg and beyond,” commented Matt Moran, advisory partner and alliances leader at PwC Luxembourg, in the press release.
“Together, AWS and PwC provide an unmatched combination of cloud infrastructure and consulting including UX/UI, product design and PMO activities. This offers our clients a one-stop shop for practical, industry-tailored solutions to drive and ensure the success of their business today and into the future,” added Xavier Roch Lhotellier, advisory director, technology & alliances at PwC Luxembourg.
