Risk Focus Achieves AWS Migration Competency Status  

AWS recognizes firm’s expertise in helping clients navigate their cloud journeys 

New York, NY, November 23, 2020 — Financial-technology consulting firm Risk Focus announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Migration Competency status.

The designation validates Risk Focus as an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner with demonstrated technical expertise and proven customer success in helping organizations navigate the cloud journey with AWS.  

AWS enables scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions for banking and payments, capital markets, and insurance organizations, 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 AWS Consulting and Technology Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.  

“Migrating an enterprise to the cloud is a complex and frequently expensive undertaking. AWS provides enhanced support to its customers via the AWS Partner Network,” said Vassil Avramov, Risk Focus’s Founder and CEO. “Achieving the AWS Migration Competency designation recognizes that we can ensure successful outcomes for our clients, and we are able to do so in a cost-efficient manner by tapping into dedicated AWS funding programs.” 

To receive the AWS Migration Competency, AWS Partners must undergo a rigorous assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of their portfolio of cloud implementations. The AWS Migration Competency recognizes Risk Focus as an AWS Partner that can successfully deliver solutions to challenging migration projects. 

Risk Focus takes an outcome-based approach to working with clients. The firm delivers innovative, insightful solutions that address specific needs and create measurable business impacts. Its nimble process includes shorter implementation cycles that allow for feedback, adaptability, and quick delivery of results. The AWS Migration Competency recognizes the firm’s track record of migrating and refactoring legacy data center systems with AWS solutions. 

“We connected with Risk Focus to help accelerate our efforts to migrate our platforms to AWS and adopt a more nimble, DevOps-first approach,” said Minor Huffman, CTO of Instinet. “They have been able to leverage their unique technology expertise and understanding of financial services to help us transform our tech operational processes for sustainable future growth.” 
Risk Focus and Instinet recently launched a three-part webinar series exploring the cloud migration journey to AWS.
