AWS Service Ready Program

Validate and promote your software products that work with AWS services

What is the AWS Service Ready Program?

The AWS Service Ready Program is an AWS Specialization Program designed to validate software products built by AWS Partners that work with specific AWS services. These software products are technically validated by AWS Partner Solution Architects for their sound architecture and adherence to AWS best practices, and market adoption including customer successes.

Attaining an AWS Service Ready Specialization helps AWS Partners promote their software products globally. Through this AWS Specialization, you can demonstrate to your customer that your tools or applications help reduce technology risks.
