End User AWS Competency Partner Program Unveiled
Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) announced a new partner competency program to identify firms that can help customers manage cloud services and resources.
The new AWS End User Computing Competency for Consulting Partner program was unveiled on Aug. 7, joining several other partner programs in which AWS identifies partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialized solution areas, allowing them to differentiate themselves to customers by showcasing expertise in a specific solution area.
"End user access is coming under increased security threats and compliance requirements, accompanied by a growing workforce of mobile and contingent workers," AWS said in an announcement post. "As a result, end user access to the applications and data that’s been migrated to AWS is driving customer requirements to move or add the capability for desktop and application streaming on AWS for similar customer benefits.
"Today, we are excited to announce new AWS End User Computing (EUC) Competency Partners who can support customers that need to provision, protect, and get intelligence from end-point devices, end-user apps, and data on AWS. These APN Consulting Partners provide services and offerings that help customers with strategy, professional services, managing infrastructure, repeatable intellectual property, and optimization of End User Computing technologies on AWS."
AWS said partner offerings provide:
- A resource brokering mechanism (control plane)
- Visualization/remote display protocol
- An application execution environment, with either the control plane and/or application execution environment running on AWS
"APN Consulting Partners with the AWS EUC Competency provide services and offerings that help customers with strategy, professional services, managing infrastructure, repeatable intellectual property, and optimization of End User Computing technologies on AWS," the company said in an associated Aug. 7 blog post.
The post lists 15 partners in the program so far.
