ISG to Publish Study on AWS Partner Market in U.S., Germany

Wednesday, 17. June 2020 15:05

STAMFORD, Conn., June 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, has launched a research study examining the range of technology services offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) partners in two major markets—the  United States and Germany.

The study results will be published in a comprehensive ISG Provider Lensreport, called AWS Ecosystem 2020, scheduled to be released in December. The report will cover commonly used partner-provided services on AWS, including containers, SAP products, data analytics and machine learning.

The new report will examine providers using the AWS Partner Network, which helps them develop AWS-based businesses and solutions by providing technical, sales and marketing support, said Jan Erik Aase, director and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research.

“Amazon Web Services is one of the leading providers of cloud-based infrastructure and applications, making it an attractive partner for service and technology providers,” Aase said. “The AWS Partner Network is becoming increasingly relevant, resulting in new offerings for customers.”

Enterprise buyers will be able to use information from the report to evaluate their current vendor relationships, potential new engagements and available offerings, while ISG advisors use the information to recommend providers to the firm’s buy-side clients.

ISG has distributed surveys to more than 190 AWS-related technology and service providers. Working in collaboration with ISG’s global advisors, the research team will produce six quadrants representing the services and products the typical enterprise client is buying in the AWS space, based on ISG’s experience working with its clients. The six quadrants that will be covered are:

  • SAP partner (technology), offering support, managed services and solutions based on AWS SAP solutions, including SAP Business One, SAP Business Objects, SAP database and mobile solutions, SAP Business All-In-One, SAP HANA and SAP Business Suite. Companies covered also provide general advice and support both in lift-and-shift projects and in projects that offer migration to one of the ASW SAP solutions.
  • Data analytics and machine learning partner (technology), which helps customers evaluate and use tools, methods and technologies for productive data usage in any volume. Partners in machine learning offer solutions that help companies meet data challenges, enable machine learning and data science workflows or offer software-as-a-service-based functions to enhance end applications with machine intelligence.
  • IoT partner (technology), supporting the use of applications for monitoring, managing and controlling connected devices on the basis of AWS solutions. The essential functions include remote data collection from connected devices, secure connection between devices, sensor management and integration with third-party systems.
  • Migration and container partner (technology), which offers a technology product or solution on AWS that provides support for execution of workload in containers. The product or solution can be integrated with AWS services to enhance an AWS customer's ability to execute workload using containers.
  • Managed service partners, covering providers that are registered as AWS managed service provider partners.
  • Consulting partners, covering providers that are registered as AWS consulting partners.

ISG analysts Frank Heuer, Bruce Guptill and Srinivasan PN will serve as authors of the report.

A list of identified providers and vendors and further details on the study are available in this digital brochure. Companies not listed as AWS partners can contact ISG and ask to be included in the study.
