Datacom, one of Australasia’s largest independent business technology solutions providers, today announced it has passed a rigorous, third-party audit to achieve AWS Managed Service Provider Partner status. Becoming an AWS Managed Service Partner validates Datacom’s ability to meet strategic customer business needs and broadens its stable of Amazon Web Services (AWS) solutions across Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

The AWS Managed Service Program’s third-party audit process reviews more than 75 checklist items across 18 capability areas including security, application and infrastructure migration, solution design, process optimization and customer support.

The AWS Managed Service Partner designation builds on Datacom’s demonstrated customer success on AWS and reinforces its commitment to customer outcomes by delivering enterprise-grade managed services across hybrid and cloud architectures. Datacom joins a group of less than 20 AWS Managed Service Partners worldwide to achieve AWS Managed Service Partner status and is one of the first in the Asia Pacific market.

“AWS Managed Service Partners are highly skilled at cloud infrastructure and application migration, delivering value to customers by offering a range of services to provide proactive monitoring, automation and management of their customer’s environment,” says Shane Owenby, Amazon Web Services Managing Director of Asia Pacific. “Meeting the substantial requirements to join the AWS Managed Service Program reflects Datacom’s commitment to enable customers to effectively run mission-critical applications on the AWS Cloud.”

“Datacom is committed to delivering market leading technologies. Joining the AWS Managed Service Program is a natural extension of our customer-centric strategy and implementation expertise across our 50 year history,” says Alexandra Coates, Datacom Director. “Datacom’s managed service capability on AWS means that no matter where the customer is in their cloud adoption journey, we have the people and the expertise to support their decisions. Our goal is to bring a new level of customer centricity to the managed service provider market.”  

As an AWS Channel Reseller and AWS Government Partner Program member, the AWS Managed Service Program complements Datacom’s existing Enterprise Datacom Cloud Service (DCS) which it has been providing to public and private sector clients across Australasia since 2009.
