November 2021 - Cloud Comrade, a leading Singapore-based cloud computing consultancy
and managed services provider (MSP) with a growing presence in Malaysia and
Indonesia, is pleased to announce that it has achieved the Amazon Web Services
(AWS) Financial Services Competency. Cloud Comrade will be one of 20 companies
in Asia Pacific, and over 100 globally to achieve the competency status.
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and
cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the
seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS
Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep
industry experience and expertise.
AWS Financial Services Competency Partners
provide cloud-based offerings that help accelerate innovation for banks,
insurance companies, capital market firms, and payment processors of all sizes.
These offerings allow businesses to become more agile, strategic, and
Cloud services will become even more
accessible for customers in ASEAN as AWS continues to expand its
infrastructure. Cloud Comrade, as an AWS Financial Services Competency Partner,
is well-equipped to help financial services companies harness the cloud to
transform digitally, innovate and deliver better customer outcomes.
"We are proud to become an AWS Financial
Services Competency Partner, which shows our readiness to cater to the unique
needs of Asia's financial services sector as it undergoes a massive disruption.
With our proven track record in the industry, helping a large insurance company
in Singapore and a bank in Southeast Asia with their digital transformation and
successful migration to the cloud, we are now well-positioned to help these
companies leverage the cloud to drive business growth and innovation," said
Andy Waroma, Co-Founder & Co-Managing Director of Cloud Comrade.
"Indonesia and Malaysia are very important
growth markets for us, with their size and the transformation they are
undergoing. The countries are also witnessing a fintech revolution and the
financial services sector is expected to be one of the key drivers of the
economies. As an AWS Financial Services Competency Partner, we can contribute
significantly to these countries' digital leap by helping businesses leverage
the cloud," Waroma added.
