How AWS consulting transforms business efficiency?
AWS Advanced Consulting Partners help you choose the right technology for your enterprise, and move your applications and business processes to the cloud.
AWS certified consultants
Amazon Web Services (AWS) certified consultants focus on helping customers navigate and cope with the technical aspects of the various AWS cloud offerings.
This responsibility typically begins with assisting the client in moving their data and applications to a cloud computing environment hosted by Amazon.
An AWS certified partner will use specialist knowledge and best practices to help cloud customers implement AWS solutions. In this regard, AWS consulting companies may provide training and advice to explain AWS and cloud-based operations to a client’s management and employees.
The certified consultant may also have a hand in the design and deployment of AWS applications for your business.
AWS consulting and technology partners must follow a rigorous path to achieve official certification from Amazon. AWS partner requirements demand a certain level of expertise in the consultant’s chosen field of specialization.
In some instances, this may require a minimum academic qualification of a bachelor’s degree in information technology or a related field.
Companies that provide professional, consulting, or managed services to help customers design, architect, build, migrate, and manage workloads on AWS are eligible for consideration.
What is AWS consulting?
AWS consulting is an advisory function aimed at helping customers design, build, and manage workloads on Amazon Web Services.
AWS Consulting Partners are professional, consulting, or managed services firms that help customers of all types and sizes accelerate their cloud journey.
These professional services firms include system integrators, strategic consultancies, agencies, managed service providers (MSPs), and value-added resellers.
Consultants help facilitate the digital transformation of their clients through best practices and expertise in AWS infrastructure, AWS applications, and AWS solutions.
Amazon runs a level or tier system for grading its AWS consultant network. AWS Premier Tier Partners are the most experienced AWS Consulting Partners. These organizations are recognized as market leaders, and have deep technical expertise with multiple Partner program validations.
Premier Tier Partners will typically have considerable experience and success, from working with a larger number of AWS customers at scale, to deploy innovative solutions on AWS.
An AWS Advanced Partner or Premier Consulting Partner can apply for an AWS Competency. This program is intended to identify, validate, and promote AWS Partners with demonstrated AWS technical expertise and proven customer success.
AWS Partners who succeed in attaining the AWS Competency designation can use it to showcase their skills in specialized areas across industries, use cases, and workloads.

What is the AWS Partner Network?
The AWS Partner Network (APN) is a collective that includes professional services firms, developers, system integrators, strategic consultancies, agencies, managed service providers, and value-added resellers.
All of these bodies are dedicated to helping customers from all industries and of all sizes to accelerate their journey to the cloud.
The AWS partner program is a tiered system, in which organizations at the higher levels have demonstrated, been validated for, and are certified as possessing expert knowledge in cloud computing, cloud consulting, and best practices for deploying and managing AWS apps and solutions.
Over time, AWS partner organizations must prove and expand their experience to gain APN status. Amazon provides AWS APN Consulting Partners with access to a variety of resources, training, tools, and support to build, market, and sell with the Partner Network.
