Wellington-based technology firm API Talent has achieved Advanced Consulting Partner status in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network.
The status recognises “proven capability” of providing full-service consulting services on the AWS platform, making API one of only a few Kiwi companies to have completed the requirements for promotion to Advanced Consulting Partner status in the AWS Partner Network (APN).
To achieve the certification, API Talent was required to provide supporting evidence demonstrating its expertise, including proven customer success on AWS.
“Having founded our company less than two years ago, to achieve Advanced Consulting Partner status in the APN is a tremendous accomplishment,” says Wyn Ackroyd, co-Founder and CEO, API Talent.
“This accreditation shows API Talent has demonstrated best practice capabilities in consulting and creating applications on AWS.
“We’re committed to continuing to help business successfully migrate their IT and applications onto AWS.”
Ackroyd says achieving Advanced Consulting Partner status is the latest in a series of accomplishments for API Talent, following the induction of its co-Founder and Director of Cloud Engineering, Sebastian Krueger, into the Amazon Partner Cloud Warrior program, for his several Amazon certifications and ongoing Amazon Web Services advocacy.
API Talent’s involvement and leadership in the AWS community in New Zealand is well documented: since 2014 it has organised the Wellington AWS Meet-up User Group, and in November hosted a special AWS briefing for Public Sector Officials at Te Wharewaka o Poneke Function Centre in Wellington.
“Achieving Advanced Consulting Partner status in the APN provides us with a stronger mandate and wider platform to continue supporting businesses and help them gain competitive advantage with their journey onto AWS,” Krueger adds.
