Wellington company achieves AWS partner milestone
API Talent, a tech company focused on cloud computing and based in Wellington, has achieved Advanced Consulting Partner status in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network.
The status recognises the success API Talent has had in providing full-service consulting services on the AWS platform.
To achieve the certification, API Talent was required to provide supporting evidence demonstrating its expertise, including proven customer success on AWS.
API Talent is one of only a few Kiwi companies to have completed the requirements for promotion to its status in the partner network.
“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, API Talent co-founder and chief executive.
“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," he says.
“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,” says Sebastian Krueger, API Talent co-founder and director of cloud engineering.
Earlier this year, Krueger was inducted into the Amazon Partner Cloud Warrior programme for his several Amazon certifications and ongoing Amazon Web Services advocacy.
Since 2014, API Talent 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.
