CITYTECH Awarded Managed Services Provider Competency for AWS Cloud Services


CHICAGO, Oct. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CITYTECH, Inc., a global IT consultancy and leader in Cloud Services and Web Content Management, has been awarded an Amazon Web Services Competency, granted only to those Amazon Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partners who have attained proficiency in a specific specialization- in CITYTECH's case- as a Managed Services Provider. Partners like CITYTECH qualify for an APN Competency by having a strong overall AWS practice, showcasing customer success by way of white papers or case studies, and demonstrating technical readiness within the competency.

CITYTECH is one of only 11 partners globally that have been awarded this competency, making us particularly suited to manage enterprise applications and IT infrastructure for large-scale organizations, so they can focus on their core competencies (while we focus on ours). Organizations adopting AWS for cloud computing are doing so because of its highly reliable, elastic, secure, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform. CITYTECH recognizes this need and in addition to providing full managed services, also provides cloud enablement services for those organizations trying the public cloud for the first time.

Dan Ryerson, Director of Cloud Services, states, "At CITYTECH, we pride ourselves on providing more than a "keep the lights on" cloud managed services offering. We work with our clients on not only the initial cloud migration & build-out steps, but also take things further by providing ongoing services. We know this competency will help our customers feel confident in our management."

Matt Van Bergen, Chief Technology Officer, adds, "Amazon's public cloud offering enabled us to take a fresh and exciting look at the world of managed services - focusing on automation, monitoring, and provisioning to allow our engineers to focus on high value tasks for our clients rather than mundane issues that have been typical of a managed services offering."

CITYTECH manages a multitude of AWS instances for large-scale enterprise companies and is concurrently one of only 15 Global Premier AWS partners. We look forward to continuing to leverage our Amazon Partnership to bring more organizations to the cloud.
