The AWS Public Sector Partner Program – Quickly and Easily Find Partners

The AWS Public Sector Partner Program (PSP) recognizes partners with solutions and experience in helping government, education, and nonprofit organizations around the world achieve their missions.

AWS has developed strong relationships with partners that deliver public sector specific solutions, and we’re thrilled to provide our customers with access to this network. At launch, the AWS PSP recognizes almost 400 APN Partners with experience and readiness to support government, education, and nonprofit customers.

What does this mean for public sector organizations?

Whether you are a K-12 school, a nonprofit focused on the environment, or a justice and public safety organization – ask for an authorized public sector partner and we will help connect you with the right partner for your needs. Qualified partners will be vetted within categories, including government, education, and nonprofits.

“Participation in the AWS Public Sector Partner Program will take one of our most important strategic relationships to the next level,” said Jeff Ray, President and CEO of Ellucian. “AWS cloud infrastructure helps our solutions reach their full potential with the security, extensibility, scalability, and availability that colleges and universities demand. Through our close work together, Ellucian and AWS are changing the way higher education achieves student success – and we look forward to accelerating and building on the tremendous impact we are having on campuses the world over.”

“We take pride in supporting a diverse set of clients, especially those with such unique missions as our government, education, and nonprofit clients,” said Hemant Datta, co-founder and COO of JHC. “We do not take it lightly that such organizations are trusting a portion of their innovation and enterprise strategy to JHC for implementation. The recognition as a launch partner for the Public Sector Partner Program will continue to drive our key strategic relationship with industry-leading AWS.”

What does this mean for APN Partners?

Joining this program helps APN partners build and accelerate their AWS public sector business. We enable partners to accelerate their business growth on AWS through alignment with our public sector sales, marketing, partner, and bid teams. Through the program, partners receive a designation as a public sector partner in our APN Partner Solutions Finder and eligibility for further benefits.

“Participation in the AWS Partner Network has expanded our business potential, enabling success with government clients such as the Department of the Interior, the State of Washington and the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau – as well as a new contract for cloud services with the National Association of State Procurement Officials,” said Mark Forman, head of global public sector at Unisys. “Working with AWS, we are providing cloud-based, mission-critical solutions to these and other government clients around the world. We are proud to have been named as a member of the AWS Public Sector Partner Program, continued recognition of Unisys’ approach to delivering more efficient and cost-saving cloud services to government.”
