“The collaboration between Crayon and Amazon Web Services (AWS) helps strengthen and accelerate cloud adoption and cloud migration for Crayon customers”
Crayon has announced a new Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The agreement expands Crayon’s existing AWS Premier Tier Services Partner role to further cloud adoption and modernisation of joint customers, and paves the way for Crayon’s plans to build a team of 500 AWS-certified experts worldwide.
Commenting on the announcement, Melissa Mulholland, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Crayon said “Crayon and AWS share a strong commitment to customer centricity and this Strategic Collaboration Agreement enhances how we help our customers leverage all the benefits of the cloud. With our significant technical competence, we are continuing to build momentum on our focus areas of cloud economics, infrastructure, security, data and AI.”
“We are delighted to continue the strategic collaboration with Crayon, which is designed to accelerate growth due to the commitment to build a global AWS business unit. Crayon’s strength in helping customers optimise cloud consumption to increase innovation will greatly benefit customers on their journey to the cloud,” said Vittorio Sanvito, EMEA Director of Partner Development at AWS.
According to the official announcement, through this collaboration, “customers will receive high performance services to manage their IT estate in the cloud, including guidance, tools, and expertise to manage costs, governance, and security…. offering clients faster, easier, and more cost-effective solutions to meet their cloud-computing needs while continuing to drive innovation and help organisations optimise their cloud environments.”
Crayon helps customers to assess their infrastructure, software, and applications, selecting workloads and phasing, to architecting a complete solution and launching on AWS, so the partnership makes a lot of sense.
Ultimately, this can be seen as a joint sales partnership, expanding Crayon and AWS’s reach with their respective customers. With closer, more formal collaboration between the two companies they can expect to net larger overall sales and more loyalty from their clients than if they were to approach their customers individually. For customers, it should provide a more seamless way to purchase, build and deploy AWS through Crayon.
