The company has delivered cloud solutions for more than 85% of the 200 largest public companies on the Forbes Global 2000, and their client portfolio is a “who’s who” of business and technical innovations. Capgemini was the 2022 Partner of the Year in Power Apps and a finalist for both the Partner of the Year Global System Integrator (GSI) and Partner of the Year SAP on Azure.
