AWS Partnerships That Have Upgraded the Way Businesses Collaborate
Through the AWS Partner Network (APN), brands have been able to reach customers and help improve businesses across the globe. AWS channel chief Doug Yeum explains that the benefits to brands in the APN can be tremendous. In his keynote presentation at the AWS re:Invest 2020 conference, he said, “Companies are looking for AWS partners who can deliver end-to-end solutions, develop cloud-native applications in addition to managing the cloud infrastructure, and have deep specializations across industries, use cases, specific workloads like SAP and AWS services. Partners who can meet these customer requirements and truly understand that speed matters — there will be lots of opportunities.”
Indeed, we’ve seen some great AWS partnerships present innovative ways to solve every business need imaginable. Here are some of the most memorable AWS partnerships to have upgraded the way businesses collaborate:
