The move will help convert LG CNS’s systems into cloud services further accelerating the adoption of cloud services among other Korean companies.
LG Corp.’s IT services unit, LG CNS Co., Ltd. has recently inked a strategic agreement with E-commerce giant Amazon’s cloud computing unit, Amazon Web Services (AWS) to accelerate data cloud migration by Korean companies.
Sources cite that LG CNS, under this collaboration, will combine its IT systems’ building and running know-how in Korea with AWS’s global infrastructure and service expertise to help Korean companies carry out strategies to shift to cloud computing that links with their existing system operations.
According to BusinessKorea, Ed Lenta, MD, AWS APAC, said that the company will closely work with LG CNS to help boost the adoption of cloud services among Korean customers, allowing them to enjoy the full benefits of digitization.
Reliable sources claim that LG CNS, for the first time, will be introducing AWS’s ‘50 in 50 Conversion Program’ in Korea, which allows a firm to convert its 50 applications into cloud services in just 50 days. The initiative will initially be used to convert some of LG CNS’s systems into cloud services and will later be extended to other Korean companies including LG Group affiliates, claim sources.
Commenting on the future plans, LG CNS said that it will also be collaborating on newer technologies such as the 5G (fifth-generation) network, artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and smart factories.
For the record, in 2017, LG CNS and AWS had expanded their collaboration in the cloud sector. In 2018, LG CNS was awarded a project worth 200 billion won to convert Korean Air’s enterprise system into an AWS cloud. Furthermore, in January 2019, the duo developed a Korean financial cloud model and are currently offering services based on it.
