Management and technology consultancy Slalom has partnered with cloud platform leader Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver cloud migration and IT modernization services in collaborative AWS | Slalom Launch Centers.

The three initial Centers in Seattle, Chicago, and Atlanta will deliver end-to-end cloud migration services, combining market leader AWS’s cloud platform with Slalom’s consulting services. The new multi-year, global collaboration has plans to open more centers around the world in the next three years.

Migrating workloads to the cloud from legacy data centers is complex and time-intensive, and enterprises typically don’t have the required resources to effectively handle the transitions. The new Launch Centers combine the resources of the AWS Professionals Services team of cloud experts with Slalom’s business transformation, software engineering, and analytics consultants.

Clients can temporarily relocate their IT team to the Centers, where they can work with experts in a collaborative environment centered on learning and innovation.

The offerings span from initial digital launches on AWS Cloud to customized scaling of processes. AWS and Slalom consultants will help clients define strategy, build migration roadmaps, optimize the transition, and implement approaches for ongoing operational success. The Centers will also offer organizational change management services and training.

“For more than a decade, we’ve been collaborating with AWS and have supported their vision, betting the future of Slalom on the cloud,” said Mike Cowden, president of Slalom Build. “Our expanded relationship with AWS is a differentiated approach to building and operating solutions on the cloud, helping our customers experience the value of modern technology first-hand while accelerating business outcomes.”

Slalom has worked with numerous large corporations on their AWS strategy and implementation, including firms such as LG Electronics and Avis Budget Group.

Slalom last year launched its “Build as a Service” (BaaS) offering that enables companies to build cloud-native software and tech products. As organizations are increasingly forced to use technology as a strategic part of their business, Slalom Build delivers a new way to create those imperative tech products.

From an initial launch of seven Build locations, the company has expanded the BaaS offering into two more locations, spanning the US, Canada, and the UK.
