Jelecos, a provider of PCI-compliant cloud, custom app development and DevOps services based in Omaha, Nebraska, has been upgraded to an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Advanced Tier Consulting Partner designation in the AWS Partner Network (APN).

The upgraded AWS designation would position Jelecos as one of only a handful of Advanced Consulting Partners in the Midwest. It enables the Jelecos team to help customers design, architect, build, migrate and manage their workloads and applications on AWS, as well as to develop hybrid IT solutions incorporating AWS. Jelecos’ solution architects will have a direct line of communication to the team behind the AWS platform itself, as well as access to new features before they are released to the public.

“Among the greatest benefits of Jelecos’ designation as an APN Advanced Consulting Partner is that we are better positioned to help our customers develop hybrid IT strategies to meet their specific business needs,” said Kyle Nelson, vice president of business development at Jelecos. “Organizations today have complex IT needs and they need a solid strategy in place to accelerate their adoption to the cloud. They want to reap the benefits of the cloud, but also maximize their investment in their current hardware or applications. Or, they have legacy applications, compliance requirements or other issues that preclude them from moving everything to the cloud. Some have workloads perfectly suited for a cost-effective cloud service like AWS but still require a more robust, customized environment for other workloads.”

Cloud Migration

AWS dominates the public cloud services market with more than a 40 percent market share according to a report from Synergy Research Group. To be named as an APN Advanced Consulting Partner, individuals within the organization were required to earn specific technical and business accreditations and certifications to demonstrate their understanding of AWS services and how AWS solutions can be used to address customer business requirements. In addition, Jelecos needed to demonstrate how they have successfully migrated customer workloads into the cloud.

“I am extremely proud of our Delivery Team and their tireless efforts that were required to become an Advanced Consulting Partner,” added Mr. Nelson. “Our customers can feel confident that they are working with experienced people who have a wealth of exposure to cloud strategies and best-in-class solutions. Our expertise in AWS capabilities enables us to help customers integrate this important option into their IT strategies and roadmaps. They can also leverage Jelecos‘ customizable PCI-compliant cloud and colocation solutions, powered by our robust, tier 3 data centers. Our goal is to make sure our customers get exactly what they need to best meet their needs today and tomorrow.”
