Telefónica Business Solutions has got into a strategic collaboration with Amazon Web Services in order to offer more cloudy stuff to its customers.
This seems to be a fair bit more than just a reseller agreement, with TBS creating an in-house team of AWS specialists as well as a ‘Cloud Center of Excellence’ in Spain that will relentlessly obsess about all things AWS. It’s all about holding companies’ hands during their cloud and digital transformation journey.
“Our customers are asking for advice and support in their cloud adoption processes,” said Hugo de los Santos, Director Global B2B Products and Services at Telefónica. “AWS, with its depth and breadth of services as well as global presence, is a piece that fits perfectly in our cloud portfolio. Telefónica’s cloud offering thus empowers our customers to run their infrastructure, applications and workloads on the most suitable cloud service possible.”
“Service providers are playing an important role in driving innovation and creating value for organizations,” said Niko Mykkanen, Head of EMEA Partners & Alliances at AWS. “We are excited to work with Telefónica to enable the digital transformation of enterprise customers and help them leverage the scalability and breadth of services that AWS offers.”
TBS said a bunch of other stuff that amounted to a compilation of associated buzzwords and clichés. Terms like ‘agility’, ‘digital services’ and ‘leveraging’ saw vigorous action, surely leaving TBS customers in no doubt that their digital aspirations are in safe hands.
