New APN Competency – Mobile

My doctor, my dentist, and my car mechanic each display their diplomas, licenses, and certifications in prominent locations within their offices. These documents reassure me (and prospective patients or customers) that the owners take their professions seriously, that they have invested time in their education, and that they have demonstrated their competency to the appropriate licensing board or agency.

The APN Competencies are similar. They indicate that a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN) has demonstrated their hard-won expertise and proven success in specialized solution areas. After a partner has demonstrated their expertise to us, they are eligible to join the APN and to list their competencies in their marketing materials. In the past year we have announced the following new competencies:

  • Security
  • Marketing and Commerce
  • Healthcare
  • Digital Media
  • Storage
  • Life Sciences

New Mobile Competency
The new APN Mobile Competency recognizes partners that have deep experience with mobile-first development. They help their customers to build, test, analyze, and monitor their AWS-powered mobile apps.
