Many companies are on the threshold of their commitment to the cloud or want to take the next step on their cloud journey. AWS represents major opportunities for local and international business development and operational improvements, but also involves complex technical opportunities and new ways of thinking for organizations. Having access to an approved local AWS MSP Partner will help them on their journey and is often a prerequisite for moving forward with AWS.
“Our AWS MSP Partner status shows that Basefarm is an actor you can rely on when it comes to finance, organization, and expertise. It shows we can contribute broadly to the value chain, not only in IT operations, but also in the automation and efficiency of tasks, and by providing advice to a company’s operational and business strategic management,” says Fredrik Ohlsén, CEO of Basefarm.
The qualification is also of considerable importance to employees who want a career with a company that has a documented proactive attitude towards the cloud. Having obtained AWS MSP Partner status, Basefarm will now ensure continuous security for the market by undergoing an annual audit and keeping up-to-date with the requirements and opportunities for AWS.”
By passing the audit with the rigorous set of requirements that the APN Partners consultants must satisfy, Basefarm is sending an important message to the market. AWS MSP Partner status is an important basis for comparison and decision making for both buyers and competitors. Customers can now be assured that Basefarm is the right partner for business-critical operations on AWS. Basefarm also speaks the language of its customers and invest continually in quality and security and has the necessary knowledge of local laws and regulations in the areas in which it operates. The qualification also means that Basefarm can deliver consultancy services in the area of Ops in a DevOps environment, which will allow customers to focus on business innovation and development.
“Our AWS MSP Partners possess deep AWS knowledge and the right IT service management capabilities to deliver cloud managed services,” said Guido Bartels, Managing Director of AWS Nordics & Baltics. “By investing in their AWS skills Basefarm has been able to prove they have a strong bench of trained and certified consultants that are equipped to help customers through their digital transformation and into the AWS cloud.”
Basefarm has been part of the APN since 2016. APN Partners can qualify for various programs by demonstrating their expertise in niche areas. One of these is the AWS MSP Partner Program, which provides qualified APN Partners with technical and business benefits to deliver AWS cloud services as business solutions to AWS customers.
Now that Basefarm has received the AWS MSP Partner designation, it is now joining an exclusive club of AWS Managed Service Providers globally.
