Maxis has announced that it has achieved a new accreditation as an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Advanced Consulting Partner and has joined the AWS Solution Provider Program.
The telco continues to expand its relationship with AWS, since joining the AWS Partner Network (APN). This enhances and accelerates the leadership of Maxis in providing cloud service capabilities to assist more Malaysian clients as part of their IT strategy to accept the many advantages of cloud adoption.
In order to qualify for AWS Advanced Consulting Partner status, a partner must comply with strict certification requirements, technical know-how, and successful customer references. Maxis is well suited to enable clients to enter the cloud on their journey.
Maxis will also offer the AWS Direct Connect service which is designed to enable businesses to establish a dedicated connection from their premises directly to their workloads in AWS.
“As enterprises continue to ride the economic effects of the pandemic, many of them are looking for holistic approaches to be more agile and secure. This recognition is an important part of our cloud ambition, and a testament to our market-leading capabilities and enterprise-grade Maxis Programmable converged network.
We are pleased to be working with AWS in simplifying and accelerating our customers’ digital transformation journeys,” Paul McManus, Maxis’ Chief Enterprise Business Officer said.
Conor McNamara, Managing Director, ASEAN AWS also stated that “I am thrilled to see Maxis receive formal recognition for their accelerated cloud journey with the award of AWS Advanced Consulting Partner status.
This is a strong endorsement of their accomplishments and on-going commitment to help digitise Malaysian SMBs and Enterprises. Maxis has achieved this through the investments made to upskill their teams with AWS certifications.
We are appreciative of the partnership and excited about our plans to jointly accelerate Malaysian enterprises and SMBs accessing the benefits of the AWS cloud.”
Notably, Maxis has been recognised as the first Malaysian telco to be an AWS Solutions Provider Program participant and AWS Authorised Public Sector Partner.
Maxis also established a fully accredited and certified Centre of Excellence where AWS and Maxis work together in accelerating cloud adoption and developing industry solutions for businesses in Malaysia.
All these cloud solutions are delivered through the first Software-Defined Programmable Network in Malaysia, which is MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum) 3.0-certified.
This Programmable Network is designed to enable businesses to reliably scale the capacity demand to meet the requirements of the fast-changing IT environments while operating at consistently high performance.
