Cloudreach launches its consultancy services in France to stimulate enterprise cloud adoption

Cloudreach, the global consulting firm specializing in cloud computing, is pleased to announce the official launch of its activities in the French territory. All the French companies who want to benefit from the advantages of the cloud will now have the possibility to profit from the unique and well-structured approach of Cloudreach.

Paris, March 2015   The aim of the arrival of Cloudreach in France is to provide the best support to French companies to make their cloud projects a success. French organizations now enjoy state of the art advice on the design, migration and operational steps of their cloud journey, as well as the management of all services offered by cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS). Cloudreach has established a subsidiary in Paris, based 100% on its own consultants and delivering specialized advice, 24/7 managed services and optimization of cloud environments.

Pontus Noren and James Monico, cloud pioneers and founders of Cloudreach Europe, said "The public cloud platforms play a transformational role for business. However, historical integrators still treat this development as a simple iteration of the traditional computing while it requires a fresh approach, tools and new skills."

Cloudreach is an AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner, with over 80 AWS certified engineers. Miguel Alava, Director, Amazon Support Services France SAS, commented on the arrival of Cloudreach in France: "We are pleased that Cloudreach adds teams in Paris to work more closely with their French customers. Indeed, the rapid adoption of AWS cloud computing in France and throughout Europe is largely due to local APN Partners. They play an important role helping the end customers to benefit from the scalable, reliable, secure and flexible technologies offered by AWS”.

Benefiting from concrete achievements in organizations such as Time Inc., Nissan, Financial Times and British Petroleum, Cloudreach intends to stimulate cloud initiatives in France through the adoption of the right culture, processes and  methods such as DevOps and continuous integration.

Michel Tournier, Group CIO of Anovo, an Ingram Micro Company, leading provider of logistics and repair within the technology marketplace, has adopted the Cloudreach approach to accelerate and ensure successful migration of its critical applications on AWS. "Cloudreach clearly allowed us to migrate quickly and smoothly critical industrial applications on AWS. The local team effectively shouldered the entire network and was fully efficient. We intend to benefit from Cloudreach 24/7 operational services to ensure the continuity of our business”.

On April 16th, 2015, Cloudreach Europe will officially inaugurate its French subsidiary and present a new approach to cloud initiatives at Elysées-Pavillion Lenôtre in Paris.
