    Sungard Availability Services receives AWS MSP designation

    October 29, 2021

    Renewed certification underscores Sungard AS' commitment to drive digital transformation

    WAYNE, PA — October 29, 2021 Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS), a leading  provider of highly available, cloud-connected infrastructure in North America and Europe, announced that  Amazon Web Services (AWS) has re-certified Sungard AS for the fourth time as a Managed Services Provider (MSP).  

    The AWS MSP Partner Program recognizes and validates leading AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partners highly skilled at providing full lifecycle solutions to customers. Next-generation MSPs can help enterprises invent tomorrow, solve business problems, and support initiatives by driving key outcomes. MSPs provide the expertise, guidance, and services to help you through each stage of the Cloud Adoption journey: Plan & Design, Build & Migrate, Run & Operate, and Optimize. 

    “A key measure of our successful work with AWS is the growth we’ve experienced in our AWS business, indicating customer satisfaction through the added number of projects they bring to the table,” said Jim Paterson, Executive Vice President, Sungard AS. “Receiving the MSP designation once again confirms the continued evolution of our AWS services, and the way we add value to customers through that evolution.”

    Through the AWS MSP Partner Program, Sungard AS  can provide a proven enterprise operating model, day-to-day infrastructure management, security control, compliance control, and cost optimization. This enables Sungard AS customers to migrate to AWS faster, reduce operating costs, improve security and compliance, and focus on their differentiating business priorities. 

    The AWS MSP Partner Program validation process consists of a rigorous multi-day onsite audit performed by an independent, third-party auditor and aims to confirm the Partner’s ability to provide next-generation managed services and capabilities in cloud architecture, automation, optimization, and management to their client’s AWS environments. The use of a third-party validation audit brings value to participating AWS Partners and AWS customers, who can confidently identify qualified AWS MSP Partners.

    Successfully completing the audit ensures AWS MSP Partners are experts on all AWS products and features, and that their business processes are best of breed, ensuring they are capable of delivering the high-level of customer focus for which AWS is known. The full MSP audit is held every three years, and the certification scope continues to evolve as technologies and businesses transform.

    Attaining MSP certification is a validation of the ongoing progression of Sungard AS’ cloud services and the added value they bring to customers. In addition to AWS services, Sungard AS offers full lifecycle hybrid and multi-cloud advisory and professional services, as well as Cloud Recovery – AWS for automated recovery of protected workloads, and Managed Cloud – AWS, UK Sovereign for customers based in the United Kingdom.
