French technology giant Capgemini has teamed up with EMC to offer next-generation cloud solutions to enterprises in Brazil.
The two companies will deliver a portfolio of end-to-end As-a-Service cloud offerings designed for specific vertical market segments.

“The As-a-Service solutions will be aimed at delivering more agile and cost-efficient cloud IT solutions, designed to meet customers’ unique business challenges and requirements,” the French company stated in a press release.
The integrated solutions, Capgemini said, will help IT organizations gain business agility without sacrificing trust and control in their cloud computing.

Moreover, state-run companies in Brazil are likely to make a huge investment on information technology as they are preparing the country to host soccer world cup as well as the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Capgemini has been an EMC Global Alliance Partner since the program’s inception in 2008 and its relationship with EMC dates back to 2002 when the companies began offering joint pay-as-you-go storage services.
The French company said they would soon extend the cloud service to more markets in the region.
“As the fourth largest IT services provider in Brazil, we have witnessed a shift in IT spending patterns as our customers here move to a more service-based cloud approach to IT procurement,” said Jean-Claude Viollier, Corporate Vice President, Capgemini.
