2nd Watch Achieves AWS DevOps Competency

The Company Has Supported Multiple High-Profile AWS DevOps Implementations in the Past Year

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2015) -  2nd Watch has earned another certification from Amazon Web Services (AWS), its fourth this year, this time in the category of DevOps deployments, once again demonstrating the firm's in-depth knowledge of the AWS platform. The AWS DevOps Competency is part of the AWS Partner Network (APN) Competency Program, which highlights partners that have demonstrated technical proficiency, leadership and proven customer success in specialized solution areas. Earlier this year, 2nd Watch earned APN Competencies in Marketing and Commerce, Big Data and Life Sciences. The firm has been an APN Premier Consulting Partner since 2013.

2nd Watch achieved the APN DevOps Competency for its proven success helping customers adopt the latest DevOps principles and technologies. The firm has supported dozens of such implementations on AWS over the past year, including for a billion dollar consumer packaged goods company and a national insurance agency. In most cases, 2nd Watch provided a detailed assessment of the customer's applications and workloads, a framework for transitioning software development into a DevOps organization, methodologies for high-level and detailed infrastructure design, engineering and implementation support, and training and managed services, all based on AWS best practices.

"Achieving the APN DevOps Competency is a huge win for our company, validating our expertise in a critical area of the digital economy with the leading cloud provider, AWS," says Jeff Aden, co-founder and EVP at 2nd Watch. "Many companies today need to speed time-to-market and improve software quality, yet may not have the knowledge to do so using DevOps methods and tools. With AWS and 2nd Watch, companies have the platform, tools and expertise to gain a competitive edge."
