Sapphire, the leading provider of digital operations platform led transformation to mid-market and mid-enterprise companies, today announced it has extended its current agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and signed a strategic services agreement with Cloudreach to accelerate the adoption of cloud-delivered digital operations transformation services to its one thousand customers.

The agreements will see Sapphire grow its cloud services portfolio and transform its current hybrid-cloud platform into AWS over the coming two years, benefiting the company’s existing UK and US clients, and meeting the growing demand for cloud-led digital transformation services.

“Deploying digital operations transformation removes friction from across our clients organisation, and for most organisations today, the question isn’t why they should transform, but how,” commented Chris Gabriel, Chief Strategy Officer at Sapphire.

Across our entire portfolio of digital transformation services; ERP, Financial Management, Asset Operations, BI and Analytics, IT Operating Management or Automation, our customers are self-selecting a cloud first approach, either native SaaS from our strategic partners, or Sapphire delivered Cloud. The speed of transformation becomes faster, consumption simpler, and customers lock-in the reoccurring innovation that cloud native or cloud hosted services bring.

With over 300 cloud native or cloud hosted customers, our long-standing partnership with AWS has proven that when specialist digital transformation providers and disruptive global cloud providers team up we make transformation simpler, faster and more sustainable. With AWS and Cloudreach we intend to accelerate the outcomes the cloud can deliver for our clients.”

Cloudreach will provide a range of cloud strategy, cloud migration and support services to Sapphire as it transitions away from its current hosted platforms, and Sapphire’s agreement with AWS will see it more than quadruple its current platform consumption requirements.

“We’re excited to work with Sapphire to help them achieve their journey to cloud and deliver an even better experience to their customers.” said Brooks Borcherding, CEO at Cloudreach. “The cloud is truly a transformational platform and will allow Sapphire to transform quickly and seamlessly. We look forward to working with the team at Sapphire in this strategic initiative.”
