TEKsystems Achieves AWS Service Delivery Partner Status for Amazon Redshift and Amazon EMRJanuary 27, 2017
TEKsystems, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today announced it has achieved AWS Service Delivery Partner status for Amazon Redshift and Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR).
The AWS Service Delivery Program was recently launched to help AWS customers find qualified Amazon Partner Network (APN) members that provide expertise in a specific service or skill area. To qualify, partners must pass service-specific verification of customer references and a technical review, meaning customers can be confident they are working with partners that provide recent and relevant experience.
"For many reasons-rising software, hardware and infrastructure costs, increased security demands and so forth-more and more of our clients are transitioning to a cloud-first model," says Tom War, executive director at TEKsystems. "We’re in a strong position to help them on that journey. Our status in the APN enables us to leverage our strengths as an IT services provider to help our customers reach their strategic goals. Our status as a Redshift and EMR Service Delivery Partner highlights our growing capabilities to deliver more and enhanced cloud services to our customers."
Amazon Redshift Service Delivery Partners provide tools and services for loading, transforming and visualizing data.
Amazon EMR Service Delivery Partners help customers build and deploy big data analytics applications using Amazon EMR, a managed service that simplifies running big data frameworks such as Apache Hadoop, Spark, Presto, Hive and HBase on massively scalable clusters.
TEKsystems Cloud Services provides tailored, end-to-end solutions, supported by practice expertise, to help clients transition to and navigate the AWS Cloud. "It’s a given in today’s business environment that the cloud is increasingly integrated into the DNA of how organizations run. However, making that transition is not as simple as flipping a switch," War says. To support clients in this effort, TEKsystems Cloud Services-based on AWS-spans the different stages of transitioning to the cloud, from current-state analysis and the migration itself, to managing cloud services.
