This marks the third year in a row in which Sungard AS has been accepted into the program.
The AWS MSP Partner Program recognizes and validates leading AWS Consulting Partners that are highly skilled at providing full lifecycle solutions to customers. Next-generation AWS MSP Partners can help enterprises invent tomorrow, solve business problems and support initiatives by driving key outcomes. AWS MSP Partners provide the expertise, guidance and services to help companies work through each stage of the cloud adoption journey: plan and design, build and migrate, run and operate, and optimize.
The AWS MSP Partner Program validation process consists of a rigorous multi-day onsite audit performed by an independent, third-party auditor. It aims to confirm the AWS Partner’s ability to provide next-generation managed services and capabilities in cloud architecture, automation, optimization and management to its clients’ AWS environments.
“Sungard AS is pleased once again to receive the AWS MSP Partner designation,” said Jim Paterson, Executive Vice President of Sungard AS. “With this designation, we join an exclusive group of AWS MSP Partners, differentiated by focusing on the delivery of resilient, recoverable IT solutions on AWS. Our Next-gen Managed AWS team has sole responsibility to architect, develop, deliver and continuously improve customers’ AWS solutions and engage with them throughout the cloud adoption lifecycle.”
By migrating to and building on AWS, companies around the world are re-defining what is possible. The explosive growth of technology solutions available from AWS and AWS Partners, combined with the need for faster and more agile solution development, raises many questions for companies seeking to modernize their business.
