Multi-year Strategic Collaboration Agreement between Innovations ON by PCG and Amazon Web Services
Bundled know-how for the benefit of SMEs and enterprises in the DACH region: focus on cloud migration, SaaS and cloud transformation
Joint establishment of a dedicated SaaS factory for the development of new cloud-native applications and the modernization of existing applications
Numerous customers already rely on the expertise of Innovations ON, the AWS division of PCG, 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, Innovations ON started with a clear goal: 100% focus on the AWS public cloud. Today, as part of the Public Cloud Group holding, 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 Innovations ON GmbH.
With the AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP program), Innovations ON 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 Innovations ON GmbH. “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!”
To build on this development in the coming years, Innovations ON and AWS 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.
“Innovations On 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 Innovations ON 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, Innovations ON 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) Innovations On GmbH and AWS 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.
