Matillion Attains Big Data Competency from Amazon Web Services

Matillion are delighted to announce that we have recently attained the ‘Big Data Competency’, awarded by the Amazon Web Services Partner Network scheme in recognition of our proficiency in the Big Data field.

We have achieved this Competency through the work we have done around our product Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift, which launched on the AWS Marketplace earlier this year.

This Competency comes in addition to us being recognised as an Advanced Technology Partner by AWS back in May 2015.

What is the APN competency program?

The Amazon Partner Network (APN) Competency program is a scheme aimed at highlighting AWS partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency or customer success in specialised solution areas.

By attaining an APN Competency, partners are able to differentiate themselves to customers by signalling their proficiency and expertise in this specific solution area.

The current Competencies available are:

DevOps Storage
Mobile Healthcare
Security Life Sciences
Digital Media Microsoft Solutions
Marketing & Commerce SAP Solutions
Big Data Oracle Solutions

 

In order to qualify for one or more of these competencies, partners must have a strong AWS presence, must be able to demonstrate their technical readiness within the competency and finally, must be able to support this by showcasing customer success stories.

Big Data Competency

Matillion have been awarded the APN Competency in Big Data.

In order to achieve this Big Data Competency, partners must have demonstrated success in helping customers “evaluate and use the tools, techniques, and technologies of working with data productively, at any scale.”

We have achieved this Competency through the work we have done around our product Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift, which launched on the AWS Marketplace earlier this year.

Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift is a push-down ETL /EL-T tool which allows customers to simplify data management and unlock the true power of Amazon Redshift. Our tool makes light work of Big Data sets, allowing you to process millions of rows of data in a matter of seconds, with real time feedback.

Meeting the Competency requirements

In order to obtain this Competency, we first had to satisfy a number of stringent requirements covering; membership, billings, support plans and customer engagements.

The exact Competency requirements can be found below.

And of course, the product itself had to go through a strict approval process, being reviewed by the AWS Architect Review Board.

With such a stringent approval process, it’s no surprise that we are amongst only a select few businesses to have been awarded this Competency.

So what does this all mean for us?

In addition to the benefits we already receive as an APN Advanced Technology Partner, this Competency gives us access to a whole host of valuable tools and support. This covers everything from Marketing & PR, to Business & Technical support from AWS.

With the ongoing support of the AWS Partner Network we hope to continue driving our business forward, providing fantastic solutions to our customers, via the AWS Marketplace.
