Dun & Bradstreet, a global leader in commercial data and analytics, has achieved Advanced Technology Partner status in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). This designation recognizes the commercial data and analytics company as an expert in AWS-based data and artificial intelligence (AI)-driven solutions.
In addition, Dun & Bradstreet gained AWS Digital Customer Experience (DCX) Competency status. The AWS Competency Program was created to help customers identify AWS Consulting and Technology APN Partners with broad industry experience to support the seamless integration and deployment of scalable, flexible, and cost-effective managed cloud solutions.
To receive these designations, APN Partners must pass a comprehensive and detailed architecture, security and data privacy technical review, possess deep and certified AWS expertise, as well as deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.
“Deepening our relationship with AWS helps us to deliver on the promise to meet customers’ needs in modern ways,” said Michael Bird, President of Sales & Marketing Solutions at Dun & Bradstreet. “The rigorous qualifications of the program also indicate the shared commitment that we have to provide the highest levels of security, privacy, and technical expertise to our customers.”

These designations would further enable Dun & Bradstreet to leverage AWS’s engineering, technical support, sales, and marketing resources to deliver more innovation and cost-efficiencies to customers faster. They will also allow the company to respond quickly to customer business needs and to remain at the forefront of industry standards, information security, and best practices.
Dun & Bradstreet has been working with AWS for a long time, utilizing the platform to complete hundreds of deployments and support thousands of users worldwide. The company also became a qualified provider in AWS Data Exchange, a new service that would make it easy for millions of AWS customers to securely find, subscribe to, and use third-party data in the cloud.
“By working with AWS, Dun & Bradstreet has been able to not only accelerate its innovation leadership and software release cycles, but also reallocate its technical and financial resources more efficiently and effectively,” added Mr. Bird. “The elastic scalability of AWS, coupled with its worldwide presence, further elevates Dun & Bradstreet’s ability to address market demand volatility and better serve its global customers.”
