AWS Revamps Partner Program

Amazon is overhauling its partner program.
It’s starting a public beta of a new global AWS Partner Network (APN) that’ll provide members of its ecosystem with technical information as well as sales and marketing support to accelerate their Amazon cloud business.
Membership is divided into technology-based partners (ISVs, SaaS, tools providers and platform providers) and consulting-based partners (SIs, agencies, consultancies and MSPs). And there are tiers in each (Advanced, Standard and Registered) based on a set of requirements.
Partners that qualify for the Standard and Advanced tiers will get a logo, a listing in a new directory, $1,000 in AWS Services credits and $1,000 in AWS Premium Support credits. The credits are good for a year.
