AWS launches energy competency program

Written by Fri 3 Dec 2021

In a bid to enable firms in the energy sector to find effective partners to work within the AWS partner ecosystem, Amazon has launched a program to recognise leading AWS partners through the AWS Competency Program. These partners have been selected due to their “technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialised solution areas, industry verticals, or workloads,” according to Amazon.

At launch, Amazon have announced 32 partners who are well placed to work with businesses in the energy sector and help them along the journey to embracing AWS technology. As pressure builds on companies to address their carbon emissions, Amazon identified the need for energy industry players to further adopt technologies such as cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML).

SoftServe is one of the AWS Energy Services Competency Partners, noted by Amazon as having “deep specialisation and experience designing and building innovative solutions based on AWS technologies that serve customers in the energy industry across the value chain.”

SoftServe work with energy firms to develop effective strategies around machine learning modelling and building IoT data lakes. “To meet the rising demand for innovation, energy companies around the world are increasingly using cloud computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things,” said Todd Lenox, Vice President Alliances and Partnerships at SoftServe.

“The AWS Energy Competency status reiterates SoftServe as a best-in-class consulting and technology partner that supports energy companies in keeping their IT capabilities in sync with evolving business operating models,” he adds.

By creating this program, Amazon hopes to expand the use of AWS to new customers and enable them to utilise technology to keep operating costs down, improve efficiencies and develop their sustainable renewable asset portfolio.
