Amazon Web Services (AWS) recognises five ASEAN partners as leaders in helping customers drive innovation

Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an company, today announced the 2018 ASEAN Partner Award winners, recognising leaders in the ASEAN channel playing a key role helping customers drive innovation and build solutions on the AWS Cloud.

Announced during the annual AWS Partner Summit and on the eve of the AWS ASEAN Summit, the AWS Partner Awards recognise a wide range of born-in-the cloud, and traditional AWS Consulting and Technology Partners, whose business models have embraced specialisation and collaboration over the past year. The Awards also recognise partners whose business models continue to evolve and thrive on the AWS Cloud as they work with customers, enabling them to build on Big Data analytics and take advantage of the benefits of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

The AWS Partner Network (APN), is a global partner program, focused on helping the tens of thousands of participating partners build successful AWS-based businesses or solutions by providing business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market support. The APN includes independent software vendors (ISVs) and systems integrators (SIs) around the world, with APN Partner participation in Southeast Asia has grown significantly over the past seven years.

Nick Walton - Managing Director, AWS, ASEAN said the diverse nature of the AWS Partner Award winners reflected the opportunity provided for partners who were focused on helping customers remove the friction of managing IT infrastructure and set the platform for innovation.

"AWS partners are adding value to customers across a wide range of industries, from banking and finance, to the public sector, and increasingly, the South East Asian startup sector. The winners of the 2018 AWS ASEAN Partner Awards understand that customers can access more than 100 services to innovate in a myriad of ways – including some who are bringing entirely new solutions to market, and others who have been working with AWS since the launch of the AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region more than seven years ago."
