AWS Partner Network – Report from re:Invent 2014
The AWS Partner Network (APN) helps our technology and consulting partners to build businesses around AWS. Members of APN have access to business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market (GTM) resources and support.
The Global APN Summit is an important part of AWS re:Invent. I’d like to give you a brief report, fresh from the floor of the Summit!
Recognizing Top AWS Partners
The keynote, led by Terry Wise (Director of the AWS Partner Ecosystem), announced 28 new Premier Consulting partners, 28 leadership award winners, and over 25 additional benefits to the program. Terry noted that the AWS partner ecosystem has gained a lot of momentum in the last 12 months.

These partners have embraced Customer Obsession: Blazeclan, Compusoluciones, Leidos, LinkbyNet, Megazone, Nimbo, Sourced, Sumologic, and Unisys
- Invent & Simplify – Cloud computing has evolved a new set of business models and successful partners are those who are embracing this change.
