About the AWS Well-Architected Tool

At AWS re:Invent 2020, we launched APIs for the AWS Well-Architected Tool that allow AWS Partners to extend Well-Architected functionality, best practices, measurements, and learnings into their existing architecture governance processes, applications, and workflows.

We launched the Well-Architected Tool APIs with AWS Competency Partners that provide automation around the AWS Well-Architected Review to reduce the time and resources it takes to compete a review and generate insights.

Utilizing these tools can provide benefits for AWS Partners and customers conducting Well-Architected Reviews on a regular basis:

  • Decrease discovery time: These solutions provide hundreds of checks aligned to various Well-Architected best practices to accelerate the discovery of risks in workloads.
  • Increase productivity: By automating portions of the Well-Architected Review, AWS Consulting Partners can increase the volume of Well-Architected Reviews and focus resource time on improvements and providing additional value to customers.
  • Conduct a more consistent review: These solutions dive into customer accounts, providing a more accurate view of AWS service configurations to provide more prescriptive, real-time insights. Additionally, these tools make it easier to review several workloads at once and on a continuous basis to ensure a Well-Architected posture is maintained overtime.

Details About Each PartnerCast Session

The ISV Partner solutions highlighted in this series will enable AWS Well-Architected Partners to automatically discover issues based on Well-Architected best practices, and gain additional insights to make it easier to remediate high-risk issues (HRIs).

We invite AWS Consulting Partners to explore how ISV solutions can help you deliver Well-Architected Reviews up to 95 percent faster through hundreds of automated best practice checks, and increase the volume of reviews by up to 3x.
