Attenda is awarded AWS Advanced Consulting Partner status

Reinforcing its leading market position in managed services and hybrid computing solutions

London - December 03, 2013 - Attenda Limited, the Business Critical IT company, today announced that it has achieved Advanced Consulting Partner status in the Amazon Web Services Partner Network.

This status has been achieved as a result of Attenda meeting, and exceeding, the technical and business requirements for Advanced Consulting Partner. This includes the minimum requirement for 5 AWS trained technical and 5 non-technical staff; today, Attenda has 32 technical and 15 non-technical AWS professionals.

Commenting on the achievement, Mark Fowle, CEO, says "This enhanced partner accreditation brings Attenda even closer to AWS as a result of some great client wins, superb AWS skills in our business, and excellent market momentum."

Attenda adds value to AWS for its clients, by wrapping a managed service capability around the relevant AWS service to provide, where necessary, connectivity and integration to on premise, private cloud and co-lo environments for critical applications; all managed within a common services management framework.

Commenting on its recent contract with Attenda, Neil Bacon, Founder, iwantgreatcare, says; "Attenda's ability to provide us with a managed AWS public cloud service has ensured that we can deliver our users with a highly agile and responsive solution, in a cost effective way, but with the on demand scalability that our business model requires."

As an Advanced Consulting Partner, Attenda adopts a consultative-led approach to its client engagements, with the required skills to assess and recommend the most appropriate solution, to achieve the desired business outcome.

Fowle continues, "I see this as an important step on our journey to offer our clients the very best in application delivery, infrastructure and cloud connectivity, service management and operational excellence."
