Persistent Systems has announced a multi-year strategic collaboration agreement with AWS to accelerate the pace of innovation and development of generative AI solutions for clients. Persistent is a long-standing AWS partner and has a proven track record of early scale generative AI adoption across multiple industry verticals leveraging services like Amazon CodeWhisperer and Amazon Bedrock. Amazon CodeWhisperer provides generative AI-powered code recommendations directly in multiple integrated development environments (IDEs) to help developers build applications quickly in more than 15 coding languages; Amazon Bedrock is a fully managed service that makes foundation models (FMs) from leading AI companies accessible via an API to build and scale generative AI applications.
This strategic collaboration with AWS will help Persistent to further increase the impact it delivers to its clients that are embracing generative AI. Through this teaming, Persistent will have access to additional resources from AWS to build proofs of concept to help clients identify tangible business outcomes from generative AI. This will also support use case discovery and rapid build out of solutions with additional go-to-market funds from AWS. One of the key benefits to combined clients will be continued early access to AWS’s generative AI services and investments that will help clients with their aspirations around growth, time-to-market, and better customer experience.
The strategic collaboration agreement builds on Persistent’s 30+ years of software engineering heritage, its best practices from more than 120 AWS engagements for cloud migration and modernisation and its 2,500 AWS practitioners to enable flexible and scalable generative AIpowered solutions tailored to clients’ unique needs. This collaboration reflects Persistent’s proficiency in building robust Cloud infrastructure, crucial in today’s Cloud-first, AI-first world, enabling clients to implement cloud-powered generative AI solutions. These combined assets from AWS and Persistent can bolster the value provided to joint clients, helping them unlock the full potential of their technology investments.
Rajiv Sodhi, Senior VP, Hyperscaler Business & Strategic Alliances, Persistent said, “Enterprises across industries are looking to tap into the transformative potential of generative AI to reimagine, redefine, and rethink their business models for improved customer experiences and business growth. Combined with our newly acquired AWS Migration Competency status and our SCA, AWS will help us scale generative AI adoption among our clients so they can identify and implement use cases where this technology can have a real impact. We remain committed to helping clients reach their technology goals by leveraging the agility, breadth of services, and rapid innovation that AWS provides.”
