After last year’s virtual event, AWS re:Invent 2021 promises to be bigger and better than ever! As the world’s premier cloud computing experience, the five-day hybrid (in-person and online) event delivers expert sessions, hands-on workshops, and breakout sessions, along with big announcements about new AWS technology. As an AWS Strategic Collaboration Partner and gold sponsor, we look forward to bringing our team of cloud experts to Las Vegas to meet with our customers, partners, and colleagues and showcase Virtusa’s leading-edge cloud capabilities. Our Global Executive for Strategic Transformation in Digital, Cloud, and Infrastructure Technologies Anirudh Joshi, shares his background on our partnership with AWS and what to expect from the event and discussions with our team both on-site and virtually. 

Schedule a virtual meeting with Anirudh.

Virtusa is an AWS Strategic Collaboration Partner—how does this partnership enhance Virtusa’s offerings?

This partnership is really designed to benefit the customer who can experience the credibility and quality of big, global SIs (like Accenture, Deloitte, Capgemini, and TCS) with the nimbleness, focus, and flexibility of a start-up that can move much faster. With a strategic goal of focusing on cloud, we can bring focus and depth to help our customers leverage the most value out of the AWS value proposition. 

AWS: Reinvent celebrates its 10th year, November 29-December 3, 2021, in Las Vegas. Why is it important for Virtusa to be there? What can attendees expect from the event?

Virtusa is a strategic digital engineering partner to some of the world’s most reputed companies in the BFSI, healthcare, and telecom sectors. As companies within these industries march forward in their journey to the cloud, we have a unique value proposition in influencing this journey, at scale, in three different dimensions – ideate, accelerate, and optimize. The event is an opportunity for customers to explore our solutions, learn from the ecosystem, and discover how Virtusa can play a part in influencing their journey at scale based on these dimensions. 

Attendees to this event can also expect a preview of our differentiated solutions that focus on specific aspects of the cloud transformation journey, and how they can benefit from Virtusa’s expertise and experience. The key here is speed at scale and our solutions focus on both these benchmarks simultaneously.

Why should attendees book a virtual meeting with you during re:Invent?

The event is a great opportunity to explore the cloud journey and how we can work together. Participants from enterprises who are stakeholders in organizational cloud journeys can expect to meet a partner who is very committed to accelerating the adoption of cloud in specific areas like Cloud Workspace, Cloud Contact Center Transformation, Data on Cloud, and Multi-Cloud Operations. 

Participants from technology companies, whether they are start-ups, mid-size, or large companies can find in Virtusa a willing partner who can integrate their technology products into simple and effective solutions to solve pressing customer problems. AWS re:Invent gives us the opportunity for an introductory meeting and to plan the next steps to get things rolling. 

This year, Virtusa’s theme at the event is Ideate. Accelerate. Optimize. Can you touch on how the idea of acceleration aligns with the cloud migration journey? 

Looking at ideate specifically, our team is focused on how we can help customers differentiate their innovation on the cloud. Solutions like Digital Product Workbench and OIP – that have been proven in large financial institutions – can help enterprises innovate and build products much faster at a much lower cost and get their product ahead of time compared to the competitors. Our solutions in the modernization of data and analytics, and in partnership with some unique start-ups, can help customers solve data modernization problems in a way that is significantly faster compared to competitor solutions.

What are you most looking forward to at AWS re:Invent? 

Learning about the new and innovative products and solutions, both from AWS and their partners in the AWS ecosystem.
