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 centres to AWS.

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 centres 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.”
