The APN Navigate Journey

If you are already an APN Select Tier or above Partner looking to specialize in a specific service area, solution, or workload, choose the APN Navigate specialization track that best suits your business goals and follow the steps outlined below. These tracks are open to all APN Partners, but we recommend that your organization be APN Select Tier or higher to ensure the best experience.

  • Step 2: Utilize your APN Navigate Checklist
  • Step 3: Share your progress with AWS
  • Step 1: Sign up for Enrollment Trainings
  • To get started in any APN Navigate track, a minimum number of two business and two technical individuals from your organization must complete key enrollment trainings. This will better equip your organization to complete the APN Navigate checklist activities and engage with AWS experts.

    Once the required number of trainings for a given track have been completed, your Alliance Lead will receive access to your dedicated APN Navigate toolbox within one business week.

    Instructions on how to sign up for enrollment trainings (as an individual):

    1. Choose your APN Navigate track from the below list and select the training type you’d like to take (Business or Technical)
    2. Log in to the APN Portal (each participating training member)
    3. Complete the enrollment trainings for your chosen track (each participating team member)

    For support, please email your APN Contact.

  • Step 2: Utilize your APN Navigate Checklist
  • Your APN Navigate Toolbox includes the APN Navigate Partner Goals checklist, your step-by-step guide to achieving your business transformation goals on AWS. Your Alliance Lead can share entire APN Navigate Toolbox across the organization.

    How to use the APN Navigate Partner Goals Checklist (as an Alliance Lead):

    1. Download the APN Navigate Partner Goals Checklist from your APN Navigate Toolbox
    2. Click on the relevant “Checkpoint” button of your desired activity for prescriptive how-to guidance
    3. Submit the checkpoint’s included form to provide AWS with visibility into your achievement
    4. Complete as many activities as needed to support your business transformation goals – work with your APN Contact to determine which exercises are best-suited to your organization’s needs

  • Step 3: Share your progress with AWS

    1. Complete your desired activities through the APN Navigate Partner Goals Checklist, and log your progress through the enclosed checkpoint forms (Note: not completing the checkpoint forms blocks AWS visibility into your activities)
