Model9 Achieves AWS Migration and Modernization Competency Status
AWS launched the AWS Migration and Modernization Competency to allow customers to easily and confidently engage highly specialized AWS Partners. The AWS Migration and Modernization Competency takes on the heavy lifting of identifying and validating industry leaders with proven customer success and technical proficiency in data migration and transformation.
Achieving the AWS Migration and Modernization Competency differentiates Model9 as an AWS Partner with deep expertise helping organizations take a data-led approach to mainframe modernization by moving mainframe data sets in their native format to Amazon Simple Storage Solution (Amazon S3). Once in Amazon S3, the data can be transformed, in the cloud, into open formats for use with any downstream application including Amazon Redshift, Amazon Athena, and Amazon QuickSight.
Model9’s data-led migrations use the concept of data gravity—the idea that wherever data is stored, functionality will follow—to accelerate migration projects, either via eventual application migration or the adoption of additional AWS capabilities. Executive leaders can now pierce mainframe data silos and overcome the proprietary data translation challenge that turns the mainframe into an island.
“Model9 is proud to be one of the first AWS Partners to achieve the new AWS Migration and Modernization Competency status,” said Gil Peleg, Founder at Model9. “AWS capabilities work perfectly with our data migration and transformation technology, giving companies an easy and effective way to implement their cloud-first strategy.”
“Customers want migration and modernization solutions together to extract maximum value from their AWS cloud journey,” said Bill Platt, General Manager, AWS Migration Services. “Solutions validated by the AWS Migration and Modernization Competency allow customers and Partners to simultaneously undertake the migration and modernization journey.”
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
