Cloud transformation consultancy CMD Solutions has been recognised by Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its depth of capability and consistent customer success by being promoted to Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN), the highest tier of APN Consulting Partners.

APN Premier Consulting Partners represent the highest measurable bar for APN Consulting Partners, with proven success delivering leading edge solutions and products to AWS customers. To achieve this recognition, CMD has demonstrated a depth and breadth of capabilities that include transformation consulting services, solutions for DevOps, Security and End User Computing, and repeatable customer success. In meeting the rigorous preparation, audit and review, CMD joins a select group APN Premier Consulting Partners worldwide.

Acknowledging the contribution of CMD’s first-rate team of specialist consultants to the achievement, CEO Andre Morgan says the APN Premier Consulting Partner designation will reinforce and elevate CMD’s commitment to developing and implementing best practice AWS solutions for its clients.

“We wear our AWS badge with pride and it’s fantastic to be acknowledged in this way by an organisation we regard as offering some of the best technology – and partner support – in cloud,” Mr Morgan said.

“AWS has provided the tools and frameworks that have allowed us to grow and thrive as a consultancy, by helping our clients adopt transformational cloud solutions that are high-quality, secure and fit-for-purpose, and that deliver reliability, scalability and efficiency.

“We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with AWS into the future, ensuring we use this opportunity to continue to drive innovation and growth in our AWS practice and specialisation.”

Corrie Briscoe, Head of Channels and Alliances Australia and New Zealand at Amazon Web Services, welcomed CMD as another Australian born-in-the-cloud APN Partner to achieve APN Premier Consulting Partner status.

“CMD has demonstrated deep commitment to AWS and have rapidly progressed through the APN tiers, attaining the AWS DevOps Competency, AWS Security Competency, and AWS End User Computing Competency status. Most importantly, they’ve demonstrated continued success with a wide range of customers like nib, MLC and Zip.”

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.

Since then, the business has achieved a number of milestones including the AWS DevOps Competency, AWS Security Competency, and AWS End User Computing Competency status as well as being an approved AWS Well-Architected Partner Program member. CMD also placed in the Top 3 in the APN Consulting Partner of the Year for Australia & NZ 2018.

In March 2019, CMD was acquired by Mantel Group and works closely with its digital application development and ML/AI sister companies to provide clients with end-to-end, wholistic and seamless platform transformation and data services.
