Interested in Publishing a New AWS Test Drive Before re:Invent?

There’s never been a better time to explore how the AWS Test Drive Program can help you reach your target customer base on AWS. As I’ve said before, the AWS Test Drive program is a key program for APN Partners. It provides you with a very effective opportunity to showcase your enterprise solutions on AWS to prospective customers, and to educate them on how a particular solution may address their business needs. If you’re an APN Competency Partner, you can develop a Test Drive that demonstrates your areas of expertise on AWS. Do you offer products on AWS Marketplace? You may consider having a Test Drive that then links to your offerings. If you develop SaaS solutions on AWS, I encourage you to think about how you may be able to use Test Drive to illustrate the benefits of your offerings to end customers. The Test Drive framework allows you to publish multiple Test Drives with the same Orbitera account, with the goal of making it easy to reach different target audiences by providing you with the ability to publish multiple audience-specific Test Drives.

For a limited time, we’ve increased the AWS Test Drive start-up bonus to $3,000 in AWS usage credits. This is a great opportunity for your firm if you’ve been considering developing and publishing a new or additional AWS Test Drive prior to AWS re:Invent. To receive the increased start-up bonus, you must commit to publishing a new Test Drive before September 15th, 2015.
