Sourced Group has attained public sector partner status through Amazon Web Services (AWS) amid plans to build out new capabilities with the cloud giant.
The provider - which specialises in large-scale cloud transformations for regulated industries - received the new tiering level in acknowledgement of deep expertise within the vendor’s public sector portfolio of solutions.
Specifically, the status recognises channel partners capable of managing government, education and non-profit workloads on AWS.
To receive such designation, partners must possess “deep AWS expertise” while delivering solutions “seamlessly” at a customer-level.
“As citizens demand better services, and government agencies realise the security and cost benefits of cloud, wider adoption of the technology is inevitable,” said Jonathan Spinks, CEO of Sourced. “We are ideally positioned to help public sector organisations reduce cloud implementation times and potential risks, through our Cloud at Scale Core Foundations program, and our ten years' experience in providing secure AWS solutions in highly regulated industries.”
Sourced's Cloud at Scale Core Foundations program offers public sector organisations the tools to launch or re-boot cloud adoption initiatives while enabling a "holistic, multi-year strategy", designed to "go beyond" technology to address people, tools and processes.
According to Spinks, the new status helps “further differentiate” Sourced - which has deployed AWS offerings since 2010 - from a crowded AWS ecosystem of specialists, through “demonstrated technical proficiency”.
“In as little as 12 weeks, public sector agencies can work with Sourced to quickly and effectively adopt cloud in a compliant manner,” Spinks added.
This marks the fourth significant AWS Partner Network (APN) milestone achieved by Sourced in less than 12 months, following migration and DevOps competences in November and December of 2018 respectively, in addition to premier consulting partner designation in April.
The new status also follows a bolstering of executive ranks at Sourced amid plans to accelerate growth at a global level, alongside key markets of Singapore, Australia and Canada.
To realise such ambitions, the cloud provider has promoted John Painter to vice president of strategy and innovation, alongside recruiting Ian McMaugh as managing director of ASEAN and Wilson Lee as chief financial officer.
