Cloud Technology Partners (CTP) has announced that it has achieved the AWS IoT Competency designation from Amazon Web Services (AWS). CTP is one of a select number of AWS Consulting Partners to earn this competency, highlighting the value of its offerings that help clients build IoT solutions for a variety of use cases such as intelligent factories, smart cities, autonomous vehicles, precision agriculture, and personalized health care.

Achieving the AWS IoT Competency differentiates CTP as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that has proven success delivering IoT solutions seamlessly on AWS. To receive the designation, APN Partners must demonstrate expertise in the AWS platform and undergo an assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of their solutions.

“CTP is proud to have been named a charter launch partner for the AWS IoT Competency,” said Scott Udell, vice president of IoT Solutions at Cloud Technology Partners. “Our team is dedicated to helping clients leverage the power of IoT and the agility of the AWS platform to achieve their business goals.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the IoT Partner Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with broad industry experience.

CTP recently completed an IoT engagement for RailPod, the leading manufacturer of railroad maintenance drones. CTP helped RailPod build a highly scalable IoT solution capable of ingesting massive quantities of real-time and batched data to ensure safer railroads.

“Cloud Technology Partners helped us build an enterprise-class IoT solution on AWS that enables RailPod to be a global leader in infrastructure information production to ensure safer railroads across the global railroad market,” said Brendan English, Founder and CEO of RailPod.

CTP’s IoT Practice and Digital Innovation teams are helping clients leverage the power of the cloud with the real-time knowledge learned from analyzing sensor data to help clients save millions in preventative maintenance on locomotives and railways, improve crop yields while saving money with intelligent irrigation, connect doctors and patients with medical devices and avoid accidents with autonomous vehicles.

CTP is a Premier AWS Consulting Partner and has achieved a number of competencies with AWS. In addition to the AWS IoT Competency, CTP holds the AWS Migration Competency, AWS DevOps Competency and is a member of AWS Next-Generation Managed Services Program.
