The following is a guest post from Ken Chestnut, Global Ecosystem Lead, Big Data, AWS

The AWS Partner Network (APN) is designed to help APN Partners build a successful AWS-based business through technical and GTM support. Today, the APN includes tens of thousands of Consulting and Technology partners. Given the broad selection of partner services and offerings available via APN, customers have sought the go to partners in specific solution areas, such as Big Data, Migration, Security, DevOps, and Storage to name a few. To address our customers’ needs, AWS launched the AWS Competency Program to highlight APN Partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized segments. Big Data was the first competency launched under this program.

Today, the AWS Big Data Competency includes more than twenty technology partners and over thirty consulting partners listed here.

In this inaugural blog post, we want to highlight some of the latest updates and news from a few of our Big Data Competency Partners that may be of interest to AWS customers and other partners in the ecosystem:
