Paris, September 26, 2023 – PAC, the leading European IT consulting and market research firm, today publishes three PAC RADAR reports presenting a detailed analysis of the IT service provider landscape around AWS in Europe, France, and Germany. The service providers are assessed on over 60 criteria to help companies select the best suppliers for their migration to the cloud and the deployment of AWS services. The 29 IT service providers evaluated range from major international players such as Accenture and Capgemini to large European players such as Orange Business and T-Systems to smaller local companies such as Arvato in Germany and Claranet in France.
Cloud computing is now a key technology allowing companies to successfully carry out their digital transformation with the help of new services and capabilities such as AI. This makes the cloud services market one of the most dynamic in the IT sector.
Today, hybrid and multi-cloud models have become the new norm, enabling companies to access the services best suited to their specific needs. Nevertheless, these increasingly complex-to-manage environments can quickly lead to skyrocketing consumption – and therefore costs – of public cloud services.
It has therefore become essential for companies to assess the capabilities of their cloud providers – both infrastructure providers (IaaS/PaaS) and service providers – to find the best match for specific competencies and target business outcomes. In this context, large IT service providers, major consulting firms, and small innovative players have positioned themselves to form a dynamic, highly diverse ecosystem. In this rapidly growing market, developing clear differentiators is a must, and many of the companies featured in this study are aggressively investing in the talent, assets, and solutions available on the AWS marketplace to differentiate themselves and gain market share.
AWS has now established itself as the undisputed market leader in public IaaS/PaaS, with a market share of 45% in Europe in 2022, according to PAC’s ranking, far ahead of its main competitors Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. It has thus become an indispensable partner for IT service providers aiming to fully exploit the enormous growth potential offered by the public cloud model.
In this series of three PAC RADARs, PAC presents a detailed analysis of the IT service provider landscape around AWS in Europe, France, and Germany. The players are evaluated on over 60 criteria to provide a comprehensive and independent benchmark, helping decision-makers in private and public organizations to differentiate between providers according to their investments in talent, training, and the development of dedicated verticalized solutions.
