Sierra-Cedar, Inc., part of The Sierra-Cedar Group, Inc. (one of the largest independent North American IT services companies) and a member of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN), announced today that it has achieved AWS Oracle Competency Partner status. This designation recognizes that Sierra-Cedar provides proven technology and deep expertise to help customers architect, deploy, and manage Oracle-based workloads running on AWS.

Achieving AWS Oracle Competency differentiates Sierra-Cedar as an APN member that demonstrates specialized technical proficiency and proven customer success with the specific focus on deploying Oracle on AWS. To receive this designation, APN Partners must possess deep expertise architecting, migrating, and supporting Oracle workloads on AWS.

“Sierra-Cedar is proud to achieve AWS Oracle Competency status,” said Timothy Gehrig, EVP, Shared Services. “This exciting new status reflects Sierra-Cedar’s commitment to both AWS and Oracle, as well as our expertise in delivering industry-leading solutions with our amazing clients.”

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 Consulting and Technology APN Partners with extensive industry experience and expertise.

Sierra-Cedar has invested heavily in AWS, starting in early 2016. It has since built a strong suite of cloud-managed services, aligning with AWS on strategic cloud application migration opportunities. Sierra-Cedar focuses on providing services which enable cloud adoption in higher education, public sector, healthcare, retail, and financial services. Recently, Sierra-Cedar achieved Advanced Consulting Partner Status in the APN and APN Certification Distinction for achieving 50+ AWS Certifications within its organization.
