March 28, 2018 – Alpharetta, GA – 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), has achieved Advanced Tier Partner status. This milestone demonstrates Sierra-Cedar’s ability to help clients design, architect, build, migrate, and manage cloud solutions built on AWS. Sierra-Cedar has invested heavily in AWS, starting in early 2016.

In March 2016, Sierra-Cedar began migrating its PeopleSoft HCM and PeopleSoft Financials workloads to AWS from the traditional hosting datacenter and went live on AWS in May 2017.
