New AWS Competency – AWS Migration

More and more, I hear from customers who want to migrate large-scale workloads to AWS, and seek advice regarding their cloud migration strategy. We provide customers with a number of cloud migration tools and services, including the AWS Database Migration Service, and resources, such as the AWS Professional Services Cloud Adoption Framework. Further, we have a strong and mature ecosystem of AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting and Technology Partners who’ve demonstrated expertise in helping customers like you successfully migrate to AWS.

In an effort to make it as easy as we can for you to identify APN Partners who’ve demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in migration, I’m pleased to announce the launch of the AWS Migration Competency.
