AWS Partner Profitability Framework: Deepen and Diversify Your Offerings


The AWS Partner Profitability Framework is an intuitive and reliable way to maximize business value with the AWS Partner Network.

In 2012, we launched the APN with a few hundred partners. Today, AWS customers can choose offerings from more than 100,000 partners in 150+ countries. Partners are an integral part of AWS, empowering customers to grow their business by leveraging the scale, security, and flexibility of the cloud.

To better understand the key factors that drive partner growth and business opportunity, we commissioned an independent study of AWS Partners with Canalys, a leading global technology analyst firm.

According to the 2022 study conducted by Canalys, for every dollar of AWS revenue, partners across the globe generated a multiple based on their activities, cloud maturity, and business models.

Whether reselling, offering services, co-selling, or a combination of these, partners with a full stack of professional services and the most diversified offerings can achieve a $6.40 multiplier per $1 AWS sold. Services include advisory, design, procurement, building, adopting, and managing.
