Newest APN Competency – Mobile Solutions

AWS offers a robust set of services for mobile developers, such as AWS Lambda, Amazon Cognito, Amazon SNS, Amazon Mobile Analytics, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon API Gateway, and the recently announced AWS Device Farm. As the number of services supporting mobile development grows, APN Partners have an increasing opportunity to work with customers and help them as they develop innovative mobile applications on AWS. We strive to help customers identify APN Partners with expertise and solutions in the mobile space on AWS; to support this effort, I’m excited to announce the launch of the APN Mobile Competency.

What is the APN Mobile Competency?

The APN Competency Program is designed to highlight APN Partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas, including mobile. APN Mobile Competency Partners have deep experience working with developers, mobile-first businesses to help build, test, analyze and monitor their mobile apps.

Partner solutions pre-qualified by the APN Partner Competency Program are highlighted to AWS customers as solutions that can help them with comprehensive mobile application development, faster deployment, and easy management on the AWS Cloud.
