The AWS Partner Awards recognize a wide range of AWS partners who have embraced specialization, innovation and collaboration over the past year.
At AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas this week, Borno said AWS wanted to highlight regional and global partners whose business models continue to evolve and thrive on AWS as they work with customers.
For the first time, AWS Partner Awards included a self-nomination process across a number of award categories and specialization areas awarded at the regional and global levels, where all AWS partners were invited to participate and submit a nomination.
A third party analyst firm selected the winners based on strict criteria, AWS said.
