New APN Program Launches and Updates Announced at AWS re:Invent 2019
The annual Global Partner Summit was held Dec. 2-6 at AWS re:Invent 2019, and we are excited to introduce the APN’s new program launches and key initiatives for 2020. Global Partner Summit helps APN Partners to leverage AWS technologies and learn how the APN program can help companies build, market, and sell their AWS-based offerings. This post will showcase the new APN programs that partners can take advantage of today, including AWS Service Ready and the APN Global Startup Program.
Introducing the APN Global Startup Program
Mid- to late-stage startups need to move at a fast pace in order to compete with much larger companies. To help businesses build, market, and sell faster with AWS, we developed the APN Global Startup Program. This program is invite-only and helps startups become enterprise-ready with prescriptive benefits, simplified paths to meeting foundational requirements for the AWS Partner Network, and a robust set of resources to help startups accelerate their growth.
AWS Service Ready Helps Customers Find Validated Products That Integrate with AWS Services
Before making a purchasing decision, AWS customers tell us they want to know if a tool or application will integrate with AWS services running in their cloud environment. To meet this need for customers, we are excited to introduce AWS Service Ready. This program identifies and validates products from APN Technology Partners that integrate with specific AWS services, and recommends these products to customers.
AWS Partner Network (APN) Launches Showcase of its Best-in-Class Retail Partners
Finding the most qualified and experienced partners can be time-consuming for retailers, and may not always lead to the best partners for their cloud adoption journey. To assist retailers with this search, the APN launched the AWS Retail Competency. This designation helps retailers find top APN Partners with highly specialized solutions and consulting practices that offer retail technology and services that are powered and vetted by AWS.
Introducing the AWS Public Safety & Disaster Response Competency
First responders, public safety agencies, disaster response organizations, hospitals, schools, and cities are facing a growing number of challenges in resiliency planning. With the new AWS Public Safety & Disaster Response Competency, AWS customers can identify top APN Consulting Partners that can identify, build, and implement technology offerings that improve organizational capacity to prepare, respond, and recover from emergencies and disasters.
APN Partners Can Now Conduct AWS Immersion Day Workshops for Their Customers
AWS Immersion Day workshops are day-long, in-person workshop that AWS Solutions Architects created to help customers learn how to best leverage the AWS platform to unlock business potential and meet key objectives. With APN Immersion Days, we are providing APN Partners with a repeatable model, reusable content, and automated tools that will help APN Partners deliver successful technical workshops for their customers.
