SmartSimple is selected as an Inaugural Partner in Amazon Web Services Government Competency Program
The SmartSimple team is excited to announce that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has selected SmartSimple to their newly launched AWS Government Competency Program. This brand new program includes a number of well-known organizations like Accenture, Trend Micro, Lockheed Martin and Unisys.
Amazon Web Services powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in the cloud. Their customers are located in 190 countries around the world and include a wide array of businesses, including entertainment, travel, manufacturing and IT companies.
The AWS Competency Program recognizes Amazon Partner Network (APN) partners who have shown not only a high level of technical proficiency, but a proven track record of customer success in specialized solution areas.
“By achieving recognition in this prestigious program — and as the only Canadian organization to do so for Government Competency — SmartSimple has demonstrated we’re an organization that offers mission-critical solutions to government agencies on AWS, and showcases another way we differentiate ourselves in the SaaS marketplace,” says Alex Wong, Marketing Manager at SmartSimple. “And we don’t just work with governments; we also provide solutions to Fortune 100 and 500 corporate foundations, and other large organizations.”
Partners selected to join the AWS Competency Program have proven they have a strong overall AWS practice and demonstrated technical prowess within a particular area of competency. Customers in these industries can be assured they’re working with highly qualified service providers, as all partner products and solutions are validated by internal AWS teams.

SmartSimple has already met the high standards outlined by AWS to work with their FedRAMP-approved GovCloud, a service that helps support U.S. government clients’ strong compliance requirements.
“Just last year, SmartSimple achieved the level of Advanced Technology Partner. This means we’re among the Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), SaaS, PaaS, management and security vendors that offer software solutions in conjunction with AWS,” continues Alex.
“It’s an honor for us to be recognized once again by AWS for our work, and we look forward to a long and rewarding relationship with our friends at AWS,” concludes Alex.
