Enhanced APN Solution Space Provides More Go-to-Market Benefits for AWS Competency Partners
By Alice Bartose, Sr. APN Product Manager at AWS
Customers seeking to solve a business or technical problem on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud can now identify a consulting offer and engage with an AWS Competency Partner that has proven expertise solving that specific problem.
AWS Solutions Consulting Offers give customers access to vetted architecture without requiring the in-house capacity to deploy, integrate, and in some cases manage the architecture themselves.
All consulting offers provide customers up-front with a list of what will be delivered by the consulting engagement, the requirements of the customer to participate in the engagement, and a diagram of the architecture solution that will be deployed into their account.
By promoting these consulting offers in the AWS Solutions Library, we are providing greater customer visibility to solutions created by and delivered, through consulting engagements, by AWS Competency Partners.
About the Program
AWS Solutions Consulting Offers layer consultative or professional services on top of a repeatable technical solution. These offers may include deployment, configuration, customization, or ongoing operations and managed services for a particular workload on AWS.
In some cases, a consulting offer may be built on top of an existing AWS Solutions Implementation architecture built by AWS, or on top of an AWS Quick Start architecture built by an APN Partner. In other cases, the technical solution is proprietary to the AWS Competency Partner and only available to customers via the consulting offer.
Regardless of the origins of the technical solution, we evaluate the underlying architecture for every consulting offer through the APN Solution Space program. We do this using a standardized process that incorporates best practices such as the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
Furthermore, AWS Competency Partners participating in the APN Solution Space program have demonstrated their ability to successfully execute on similar engagements with other AWS customers in the past.
After an AWS Solutions Consulting Offer has been validated through APN Solution Space, it gets listed in the AWS Solutions Library to make it easy for customers to discover offerings that address their unique business needs.
By using an AWS Solutions Consulting Offer, customers know the architecture used to solve their problem is validated by AWS, using best practices established by a decade of experience building in the cloud.
How to Participate in APN Solution Space
APN Solution Space is a partner validation program, designed to benefit AWS Competency Partners in promoting their solutions. This new integration makes it easier for customers to find the right solution and request a consulting engagement.
