Soltius has continued its whirlwind romance with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in New Zealand, with the SAP specialist achieving managed service provider status.

The recognition comes only 18 months after the Auckland-based cloud provider entered the AWS ecosystem, building on its history in delivering SAP solutions to businesses across the country.

Specifically, the new status comes in response to the company’s strong growth on the AWS platform, in addition to enhanced capabilities around security, DevOps and customer management.

Recognised by the tech giant as skilled cloud infrastructure and application migration providers, AWS MSPs deliver value to customers by offering proactive monitoring, automation and management of customer environments.

In order to achieve such accreditation, MSPs must meet stringent requirements, including a third-party audit assessing its AWS managed service capabilities.

“The audit process covers how partners should plan, build, integrate, operate, optimise and provide security on AWS,” Soltius platform business line manager Ryan Lewis said.

“The MSP Partner Program accreditation shows how far we’ve come in the 18 months since we first started to build this capability internally.

“It’s been a great journey so far, of branching out into a new area and helping many of our existing clients innovate with the AWS Cloud. The MSP certification is a credit to our team and proof of the fantastic value we’ve already been able to deliver our clients.”

The accreditation comes less than two months after the business took out the Specialised Partner of the Year award during the 2017 AWS Partner Awards across Australia and New Zealand.

As reported by Reseller News, the New Zealand-owned company joined the Kiwi contingent of top performing AWS partners following a year of strong growth within the AWS partner ecosystem.

Operating as a 20-year-old business, Soltius works with over 80 organisations New Zealand-wide, providing SAP solutions, support and consulting services.

As the only SAP partner with Gold status in New Zealand, the business has established itself as a leading IT consulting firm, capable of re-platforming SAP on to the AWS platform.

“Soltius are a market leader in New Zealand,” AWS head of channels and alliances Stefan Jansen told Reseller News.

“It’s been a joint journey for both sides and we’re continuing to innovate in equal measure. Our partner programs are updated in response to the experience we have in the field and the foresight of a partner such as Soltius to get on that journey with SAP is a great example of this.

“We listen to our partners and we innovate alongside while staying focused on the customer.”

Specific to AWS, Soltius achieved Advanced Partner status in July 2016, reseller status in September and in November was SAP Competency accredited, making them one of 17 partners worldwide to achieve such a status.

From a customer perspective, Mercury Energy engaged Soltius at the outset of the company’s cloud migration, leveraging its expertise around local deployments.

Michael Nicholls, Platform and Solutions Manager at Mercury Energy, engaged Soltius at the outset of Mercury’s cloud journey because of their focus on innovation using AWS and how that would add value to their customers.

“You can't just look internally - you have to look outside for partners, to take advantage of their expertise and experience, because they've done it before,” Mercury Energy platform and solutions manager Michael Nicholls added.

“And there's no substitute for experience on the journey you are about to take. What we were looking for was evidence that the partners we had chosen had done it before. From AWS, to SAP to Soltius we have a set of people we were leaning on.”
