Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud specialist, CMD, has received top honours at the Australia and New Zealand 2020 AWS Partner Network (APN) Awards, achieving the Consulting Partner of the Year award. Announced during a virtual event hosted by Davinia Simon, AWS Head of Partner Success in ANZ, the awards celebrate technical proficiency and proven customer success in specialised AWS cloud solution and technology areas and industry segments.

The Consulting Partner of the Year category acknowledges the partner that has helped large numbers of customers transform and innovate in multiple disciplines such as IT, data and analytics, and customer experience on AWS.

CMD Solutions was awarded for recently achieving AWS Premier Partner status and for migrating the first system of record onto AWS in Australia. Having been acquired by Mantel Group in 2019, CMD was also distinguished as the only partner that can deliver complete cloud transformation initiatives.

“Their belief in AWS solutions and dedication to delivering best fit cloud solutions was a stand out. CMD has assisted more than 50 customers to adopt and refine AWS technologies, and it has been a pleasure working with them over the past five years,” said Adam Beavis, AWS Managing Director in ANZ.

A cloud-native professional services consultancy powered by AWS, CMD was founded in 2015 by three IT professionals – Fabio Carvana, Andre Morgan, and Adam Durbin – who recognised that emerging DevOps techniques offered organisations looking to migrate to cloud more scalable, efficient, and secure outcomes via automation.

CMD is a Premier Consulting Partner in the APN and has achieved multiple AWS competencies including the Migration, DevOps, Security, and End User Computing competencies. CMD has also completed AWS’ Well Architected Review program, is part of the AWS Business Case partner program, and is an AWS Public Sector Partner.

In March 2019, CMD was acquired by Mantel Group and works closely with its digital application development and machine learning/artificial intelligence sister companies, Eliiza and Digio, to provide clients with end-to-end, holistic, and seamless platform transformation and data services.

“This is a significant milestone for CMD. I’m hugely proud of our experienced team of AWS certified consultants. This latest recognition is a reflection of the team’s dedication to our clients and to delivering cloud programs through the complete project life cycle, delivering transformational change, and creating solutions that are secure, scalable, and efficient,” Andre Morgan, CEO at CMD, said.
