New ‘Powered by Amazon Redshift’ Program Helps AWS Partners Enable Customers with Analytics at Any Scale

Independent software vendors (ISVs) in the software-as-a-service (SaaS) space are sitting on tons of data that customers generate within their application. This provides a massive opportunity for ISVs to drive analytics capabilities through their platform, providing a seamless experience and providing self-serve capabilities to customers for better insights and faster decision making.

Customers also benefit from straightforward and fast setup without having to go through the manual pains of connecting SaaS products to their data platform.

With analytics out of the box from their applications, ISVs drive stickier experiences for customers that can lead to higher revenues and profitability. To succeed, ISVs need technical, go-to-market, and sales support to monetize their data.

At Amazon Web Services (AWS), we work with tens of thousands of ISVs who use AWS services to build and run their applications. We offer various programs that provide financial incentives and credits, product integration help, and go-to-market (GTM) support to help ISVs build, run, and sell cloud applications.

Our partners have asked us to do more to help them build analytics-driven applications, so we are excited to announce the launch of the Powered by Amazon Redshift program. This program enables ISVs to build their applications using Amazon Redshift—our fully-managed cloud data warehouse service—and deliver fast, easy, and secure analytics at any scale available within their applications.

With Amazon Redshift powering applications, ISVs can drive up to 3X price performance compared to any other cloud data warehouse, up to 8X more short query processing compared to other cloud data warehouse, and up to 75% savings with reserved price instances. With Amazon Redshift, ISVs can run and scale analytics quickly without the need to set up and manage data warehouse infrastructure. Our joint customers can go from data to insights in seconds by simply loading and querying in the data warehouse.
