Last December TIQQE was awarded the AWS Advanced Partner status for the second time. Second time? Nothing new there. So what are they bragging about. We brag because it’s of strategic importance for us to hold the AWS Advanced Partner status to be able to support you all, in the best way possible. And of course, just to be able to brag about the achievement. Why you may ask yourself? Allow me to explain.
As a partner, not only to AWS, but also to our customers. We want to be relevant as an AWS expert partner, not just a partner providing resources. A strategic and important steppingstone on this journey is the Advanced Partner status. The Advanced Partner status opens up several different competence tracks inside AWS for a partner company like TIQQE. When we seek to deepen our knowledge in AWS for the benefit of our customers. Not having the Advanced Partner status will keep these tracks closed for an AWS partner as well as their customers.
What does the Advanced Partner label say about TIQQE? The Advanced Partners status is nothing you get without a track record. It shows that a partner company has a proven track record in providing business value on the AWS platform for its customers.
To be awarded an AWS Advanced Partner status, a partner company needs to prove for AWS that they have:
- Documented and public testimonies from customers about what kind of business value they have contributed with.
- Several named individuals that have reached a certain level of technical and business certifications on AWS.
- Good and documented relationship with AWS customers.
- A drive to continuously improve the knowledge in the AWS platform.
- Capability to develop the business value of their customers AWS investments.
And we need to do this over and over again. And we cannot do it without asking our customers to contribute. Therefore we need to continuously develop our partnership with our customers in order to motivate them to helping us keeping the Advanced Partner status with AWS. We think this is a win-win-win situation.
I dare to claim that if you truly looking for an AWS partner, you shall not accept anything less than one that holds an AWS Advanced Partner status. So why not select one that brag about it? Welcome to contact us!
