Capgemini and EMC are on a strategic alliance to jointly identify and build multiple cloud-based IT-as-a-Service offerings. This partnership enables Capgemini to expand its cloud-based business service portfolio globally. The first offering to be rolled out, post-partnership, would be 'Storage-as-a-Service', aimed to help deliver more agile and efficient storage solutions to customers.

The 'Storage as a Service' delivers a cost-effective way to consume storage that removes the complexity of capacity planning by providing storage tiering to meet varied customer demands and increase business agility, claimed a release. Capgemini and EMC have developed a common and repeatable storage architecture that delivers predictable costs and service levels and shifts storage costs from capital expenditure to operational expenditure.In addition, 'Messaging-as-a-Service' and other offerings will be rolled out over the next 12-18 months.

Under the terms of a five-year agreement, both companies will jointly work to identify and build solutions based on Capgemini's global service capabilities and EMC's cloud optimized information management technologies. The solutions will be designed to meet customers' business challenges, requirements and service level agreements for specific vertical market segments and geographies including North America, the UK, Netherlands, the Nordics, France, Germany, China and Brazil.
