AHEAD, a leading provider of IT consulting and enterprise cloud solutions, today announced it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) DevOps Competency status. This designation recognizes AHEAD as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member who delivers both technical proficiency and proven client success in areas of continuous integration and continuous delivery; monitoring, logging, and performance; and infrastructure as code.

“Our clients seek continuous innovation in order to advance their business,” said Eric Kaplan, CTO of AHEAD. “We specialize in helping them integrate their software development and infrastructure pipelines, in order to streamline their build, test and release processes. By achieving AWS DevOps Competency status and leveraging the flexibility and breadth of services that AWS offers, we’re allowing our clients to continuously innovate and deploy new software capabilities in short yet strategic iterations.”

As an APN member with AWS DevOps Competency status, AHEAD maximizes software developer productivity, offering solutions in four areas: DevOps Toolchain; Enterprise Tooling and Integration; Deployment Architectures; and Container Strategies. By combining its breadth of knowledge in native AWS and DevOps services with a variety of tools to create cohesive and automated solutions, AHEAD helps customers drive greater business value.

AHEAD previously achieved AWS Storage Competency status and designation as an Advanced Consulting Partner in the APN, continuing the company’s commitment to delivering solutions that stitch together cloud, enterprise service management, security, and the data center. To help clients use AWS to deploy applications faster, while maintaining security and compliance, AHEAD developed CoPilot, a cloud governance and optimization platform that optimizes the cost, inventory, and security of clients’ AWS environments on an ongoing basis.

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 Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology Partners in the APN with deep industry experience and expertise.
