Tangent Solutions Steps up AWS Capability to better Serve SA Market in Post-COVID-19 Market

Tangent Solutions has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Advanced Consulting Partner status in the AWS Partner Network (APN).

AWS Consulting Partners are professional services firms that have demonstrated exceptional expertise and engagement in order to provide outstanding support to help customers design, architect, build, migrate, and manage their workloads and applications on AWS.

Niël Malan, Managing Partner at Tangent Solutions says that, as a local AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, Tangent is well placed to help South African enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation journey to the cloud, which has been fast-tracked by the unexpected COVID-19 lockdown. “The launch of the first African AWS data centre in Cape Town in April further supports the dramatic increase of organisations migrating to the cloud. Before, limited options existed to host Enterprise Applications with AWS in Europe or America, but now the sky is quite literally the limit.”

“In their Beyond COVID-19: Five key strategic priorities for a post-crisis world report, global financial services firm PwC recommends that businesses supercharge their digital transformation to be stronger and more resilient in the post-crisis world. This AWS relationship is critical for Tangent to support local enterprises as we adjust to the ‘new normal’. AWS high global standards and requirements for specific knowledge and experience ensure local customer success. In addition, the skills development, employment and knowledge benefits associated with cloud, and other 4th Industrial Revolution areas, now extends to the South African society at large,” says Malan.
