Amazon Web Services (AWS) has signed a three-year global strategic collaboration agreement with PwC to boost innovation and operational efficiency.

The collaboration will build on a long-standing relationship, combining PwC’s consulting and software engineering capabilities with AWS’ infrastructure and services, and hopes to deliver approximately $800m in value to clients.

In addition, it will play a part in building PwC’s global strategy, The New Equation, to deliver human-led and tech-powered solutions.

The agreement will look to strengthen PwC’s offerings across services, including cloud migration and modernization, data and analytics, cybersecurity and risk, customer experience, managed services and climate reporting and transition to net zero.

Tools used for real-time monitoring and detection of complex cybersecurity attacks will be one area of focus, as PwC looks to help clients build and maintain trust with customers and other stakeholders.

Now, PwC has more than 5,200 AWS-certified professionals globally including 15 AWS Ambassadors. This newest collaboration with AWS has already helped more than 200 of PwC’s Fortune 500 clients.

Julien Courbe, PwC deputy global advisory leader, PwC US, said: “The rapidly changing nature of today’s business landscape requires organizations to be agile and responsive, staying ahead of challenges and disruption, while also rethinking their business models.

“PwC’s collaboration with AWS provides our mutual customers what they need on that journey, helping them build a modern technology infrastructure, reinvent their business models and position themselves for the future.”

Matt Garman, senior vice president of AWS sales and marketing, said: “We are delighted to collaborate with PwC and bring advanced cloud technologies and expertise to our mutual customers. Together, we can help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation and leverage the power of the cloud to drive business value.”

The collaboration hopes to include AWS and PwC professionals in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Singapore, Spain, the UK and US.
