AWS has used its partner summit in Sydney to present four awards to its top performing partners in Australia and New Zealand.
AWS head of channels and alliances, Stefan Jansen presented the awards at a ceremony at the Sofitel Wentworth hotel in Sydney.
The accolades awarded were for rising star, innovation, consulting and technology.
Wellington-based API Talent received the rising star award for the deployments it has been a part of and also the number of AWS certifications achieved within the organisation.
The most innovative partner of the year was determined by technology used and how the partner drove innovation. The award was given to Adelaide-based Comunet.
The consulting partner of the year was looked at from a more holistic point of view. AWS considered time as a partner, solutions as well as certifications, but most importantly, customer outcomes. The award was given to DiUS.
The technology (or ISV) partner of the year for 2016 was Technology One. The company built its entire ERP/SaaS platform on AWS and were given the award for the rigour used in ensuring the architecture of the solution was sound before deployment.
