The AWS Service Delivery Program highlights APN Partners with a track record of delivering specific AWS services to customers. Attaining an AWS Service Delivery Distinction allows partners to differentiate themselves by showcasing to AWS customers areas of specialization. From helping customers run serverless code with AWS Lambda or delivering workloads on AWS GovCloud (US), AWS Service Delivery Program Partners can assist AWS customers with using many AWS services.
Partners can qualify for one or more AWS Service by demonstrating strength in an area focus through ongoing training and skill-specific customer references.
