New York, NY, August 4, 2020 — Consulting firm Risk Focus has collectively achieved more than 100 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Certifications. AWS recognized the achievement by awarding Risk Focus an AWS Partner Network (APN) Certification Distinction.
AWS offers role-based certifications for team members in Cloud Practitioner, Architect, Developer, and Operations roles as well as specialty certifications in specific technical areas. To achieve an AWS Certification, APN Partners must undergo a rigorous assessment that includes taking an AWS classroom or digital training course, studying AWS whitepapers and FAQs, and passing an exam.
The AWS 100 Certification milestone comes on the heels of Risk Focus attaining AWS Financial Services Competency status in June.
“Achieving AWS Financial Services Competency and AWS DevOps Competency designations highlights the depth of our expertise in helping our clients on their cloud journey; the current achievement demonstrates the breadth of our commitment. We now average more than one AWS Certificate per person in the firm,” said Risk Focus Founder and CEO Vassil Avramov. “We pride ourselves on being able to deliver huge, mission-critical systems very rapidly and with small teams. A key pillar in our success is highly skilled and trained technologists.”
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.
“Risk Focus is a great partner: they have the right mix of domain, process and technology expertise that helps them meet and exceed our goals consistently,” said Sarva Srinivasan, Founder and President, EZOPS. “Specifically, their ability to advise, architect and deliver within AWS is unparalleled.”
