Certification recognizes the company’s mastery of the AWS platform
September 23, 2020 Rochester, NY — ITX Corp., a leading outsourced custom software developer headquartered in Rochester, NY, announced today its recognition as a Select Consulting Partner within the Amazon Partner Network (APN). The APN is the global partner program for technology and consulting businesses that leverage AWS to build technology solutions for customers. Accreditation as a Select Partner affirms ITX’s demonstrated technical proficiency with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) suite of cloud computing tools.
More than 90% of Fortune 100 companies (and the majority of those in the Fortune 500) utilize APN Partner solutions and services. ITX is actively leveraging APN’s business, technical, and marketing support to deliver its expanding AWS offerings.
“We’re extremely proud of our status as a Select Consulting Partner with AWS,” said ITX VP of IT Services and Security Jonathan Coupal. “It recognizes ITX’s continuing effort to stay ahead of the curve as an organization. We have people on our team who can ‘speak to the platform’ in a way that a regular software house or AWS hosting facility might not be able to – which means ITX is better positioned to solve a customer’s problems using AWS resources.”
The Select Partner status also showcases ITX’s real-world experience in the AWS ecosystem. Customers have been publicly referenced based on their numerous Customer Satisfaction responses – among the many criteria required to reach the Select Partner level.
“It’s AWS acknowledging our mastery of their platform,” Coupal added. “But more than that, our partnership status grants ITX even greater access to Amazon’s specialized resources. For example, we’ve been able to reach out to engineers at Amazon to help us resolve highly complex client questions and address edge-case challenges.”
Amazon also benefits from its network’s deepening knowledge as companies like ITX advance their certifications. As more companies increase their platform expertise, Amazon end users enjoy a more positive experience.
ITX has already taken advantage of its hard-earned certification. Amazon has offered support in several key areas: access to AWS training credits, sponsorships that subsidize proof of concept development, and targeted buckets of funding available for special projects – including COVID-related efforts. During the depth of the pandemic, ITX received support from AWS in the form of an in-kind grant to develop the Vitals Update app in collaboration with Oklahoma State University Medical Center, which has saved lives and mitigated spread of the coronavirus.
“Amazon is interested in showing that their AWS platform is a powerful system for solving interesting problems,” said ITX CEO Ralph Dandrea. “We founded ITX more than 20 years ago as a problem-solving organization. So, it makes perfect sense for ITX and Amazon Web Services to join forces in meaningful ways to address opportunities in new problem domains,” Dandrea added.
