SCC awarded Marketplace Skilled Consulting Partner status with AWS
SCC and SCC Hyperscale, Europe’s biggest independent IT solutions provider and its specialist cloud-enablement brand, have been awarded AWS Marketplace Skilled Consulting Partner (MSCP) status by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
This accolade recognises the strong AWS Marketplace Channel practices that have been built, as well as how SCC and SCC Hyperscale have delivered valuable ISV solutions into the market, along with consulting services to its customers. This achievement follows quickly on from SCC attaining APN Advanced Consulting Partner status with AWS across its UK and French businesses. AWS Marketplace transforms the way organisations approach software discovery, procurement, entitlement, provisioning, and governance, streamlining the traditional supply chain and enabling digital transformation. As a Marketplace Skilled Consulting Partner, SCC and SCC Hyperscale customers can leverage AWS Marketplace features to simplify transactions and modernise buying practices, thereby reducing friction in the software supply chain and decreasing the cost of time-consuming acquisition processes to enable faster innovation. Market research company Forrester*, that provides advice on technology and its potential impact said, “AWS has broken new ground in areas that procurement cares about and offers a new way to streamline SaaS buying and thereby increase efficiency while lowering risk,” SCC and SCC Hyperscale have completed a number of Consulting Partner Private Offers (CPPO) in AWS Marketplace, ensuring customers can benefit from discounted pricing on their software. With Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) authorisation, SCC and SCC Hyperscale customise pricing, duration and even end-user license terms, which customers then subscribe to through their AWS Marketplace Management portal. Dimna Gean, Cloud BU Manager at SCC France said: “We are proud of this AWS MSCP recognition as it awards our collective efforts to transform SCC’s global software expertise and model, by integrating the most innovative partners and value propositions such as AWS’s. Not only can we publish a specific CPPO offer for a customer but we can now also set-up AWS Private Marketplaces as dedicated customer experiences to activate essential ISV solutions and provide control solutions to procurement and cloud teams.” SCC UK CEO Mike Swain added: “The good news keeps on coming as SCC further enhances its important partnership with AWS as both an AWS Marketplace Skilled Consulting Partner and AWS Advanced Consulting Partner. We are committed to extending our relationship and our technical capabilities with AWS even further and look forward to achieving even more together in the near future.” *”The Forrester Wave™: SaaS Marketplaces, Q2 2020″
