Digital transformation is the process of evolving from rigid, legacy platforms to a modern IT environment equipped to rapidly adjust to changing business and customer needs. Ultimately, this is driven by two things: technology and people. Whether you are just getting started with your cloud journey, or looking to operationalize your organization’s cloud education initiatives, AWS Training and Certification can help support AWS Partners along the way.
The amount of time invested in achieving an AWS Certification is no small feat. It’s important for individuals to get recognized for this hard work. Since November 2019, AWS Partners have been able to record the AWS Certifications achieved by employees in their organization, but individuals who work for AWS Partners must provide consent for this information to be shared with their employer. Doing so can provide significant growth opportunities for both the individual and APN Partner organization.
