SA-based Synthesis Software Technologies has achieved Advanced status as an AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partner, having made a significant investment in developing the technical resources and AWS expertise to deploy and manage customer solutions on the AWS Cloud.
As an APN Consulting Partner, Synthesis’ cloud transformation initiatives assist financial institutions in becoming cloud ready, to execute mass migrations, to harness the benefits of big data analytics and to extract the cost savings and regulatory benefits of compliance. Cloud computing is an increasing priority for financial services institutions across Africa.
Michael Shapiro, MD of Synthesis, says: “One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with lower variable costs that scale as the business grows. Businesses no longer need to plan for and procure software licenses, servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance.
“Instead, they can operate in an agile manner and instantly spin-up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes allowing the delivery of results faster.”
To qualify for the APN Advanced Consulting Partner tier, organisations must meet requirements that demonstrate the scale of their AWS expertise, capabilities and engagement in the AWS ecosystem helping and adding value to end customers.
“We are delighted to be recognised as an Advanced Consulting Partner,” Shapiro adds. “Since 2012, we have been focused on helping our customers maximise the value and capabilities of the cloud.”
Synthesis offers highly specialised software development, consulting and integration services and technology based product solutions to banking and other financial institutions in South Africa and other emerging markets.
APN Consulting Partners are professional services firms that help customers design, architect, build, migrate, and manage their workloads and applications on AWS. Consulting Partners can achieve one of four performance tiers based on training, customer engagements and overall business investment on AWS. These tiers are: Registered, Standard, Advanced and Premier. By increasing a firm’s level of AWS expertise and engagement, they advance through tiers to provide better customer experience working with AWS.
