Introducing the AWS Solution Provider Program for APN Consulting Partners
By Mira Ayad, Head of Strategy for AWS Partner Network (APN) Incentive Programs
The new AWS Solution Provider Program is designed for AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partners including Systems Integrators, Managed Service Providers, Value-Added Resellers, and Public Sector Partners to resell AWS services to end customers.
In the new program, Authorized Solution Providers benefit from a tiered discount structure that rewards APN Consulting Partners for their technical investments on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and for driving new business. This program enables Authorized Solution Providers to manage, service, support, and bill AWS accounts for end customers, and enables end customers to have their own terms with AWS.

What’s New with the AWS Solution Provider Program?
In the AWS Solution Provider Program, we offer additional incentives for APN Consulting Partners who are part of the AWS Competency Program or the AWS Managed Service Provider (MSP) Program, and for bringing in new customer opportunities. The program also offers choice and flexibility to both customers and APN Partners, and new support plans will reward Partners based on their capabilities and performance.
