Randstad Goes All-in on AWSSeptember 27, 2017
Today, Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that Randstad, a leading international staffing and recruitment company, will migrate its global data centers to AWS. With this move, Randstad aims to increase efficiencies and align IT infrastructure with its digital vision to provide high-quality service to its customers around the world. AWS’s proven security and operational expertise helps Randstad protect sensitive data and meet its compliance needs. Randstad also has access to the most robust and full-featured set of cloud capabilities with AWS, allowing Randstad to innovate from idea to launch in record time.
Randstad is consolidating its IT infrastructure across 30 IT departments, providing service to 40 operating companies globally. This consolidation involves the migration of Randstad’s applications and IT services to AWS. Currently, Randstad has a number of operating companies running successfully on AWS, and the next step in Randstad’s journey is to move all of Randstad’s operating companies to AWS so that the entire organization can take advantage of the cloud. In addition to driving digital innovation, Randstad’s move to AWS has helped the company become more agile and competitive while reducing capital expenditures.
"At the beginning of our digital transformation, we adopted a ‘cloud-first’ policy for all of our new IT projects, which helped us to decrease our cost of innovation. Due to this success, we chose to migrate our entire global IT infrastructure to AWS," said Bernardo Payet, General Manager at Randstad Global IT Solutions. "By migrating our data centers to AWS, we can further reduce our global IT operational costs and increase our pace of innovation."
"We are thrilled to be fueling Randstad’s digital transformation," said Mike Clayville, Vice President, Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS. "Randstad has already seen an uptick in companywide innovation and been able to implement deeper, more streamlined security practices with AWS. We look forward to continuing to support Randstad on their journey to AWS over the next year."
