December 18, 2018 – Five Talent Software, a leading technology consultancy and provider of custom software solutions, has achieved its Amazon Web Services (AWS) Well-Architected Partner status. The designation recognizes the firm’s expertise in delivering Well-Architected reviews to clients based on AWS best practices and guidelines. Five Talent is one of 34 companies worldwide with the status.
The Well-Architected partner recognition differentiates AWS Partner Network (APN) members who demonstrate specialized technical proficiency and proven customer success meeting the five pillars of the Well-Architected Framework:
To gain partner status, providers need to possess deep AWS expertise as well as proven skills for identifying critical customer issues and remediating them in an AWS environment. Five Talent has also achieved its AWS Mobile and DevOps Competencies.
“This recognition validates our holistic approach to software development,” said Ryan Comingdeer, Five Talent CTO. “We look at every aspect of a cloud based solution to make sure it has the best opportunity to succeed. By aligning our best practices with the AWS Well-Architected framework over the last 18 months, we’ve improved our ability to help companies leverage the agility, services, and innovative solutions AWS offers.”
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Well-Architected Partner Program to help customers identify APN Consulting Partners with deep expertise and hands-on experience architecting, building, migrating, and optimizing architectures.
For Five Talent clients, Well-Architected reviews provide a powerful catalyst for identifying where to reduce costs, increase operational efficiencies, and expand opportunities to scale. The significance of these impacts is also driving deeper collaborations with Five Talent’s solutions architects as companies evolve and grow.
“During our review and remediation, Five Talent identified 23 issues that were exposing us to risk and hurting our opportunity to win larger customers,” said Ron Petti, CEO of Verdant Web Technologies. “They reduced our due diligence process with client prospects by 50 percent, shortened our sales cycle, and dramatically improved our return on capital investments.”
