Applied Insight Surpasses 100 AWS Certifications

WASHINGTON, May 8, 2020 - Applied Insight, a market leader in solving complex technology challenges for federal government customers, backed by The Acacia Group, announced today it has surpassed 100 Amazon Web Services certifications within its professional cloud services team. AWS certifications validate cloud expertise to help professionals highlight in-demand skills and enable organizations in building effective, innovative teams for cloud initiatives using AWS.

"AWS is an amazing platform that offers great value for a variety of our federal customers," said Dede Dascalu, CEO of Applied Insight. "I am extremely proud of our aiLabs team's leadership in this internal initiative to certify over 100 of our team members in AWS. While our company remains committed to being product and platform agnostic to ensure the best possible solutions are delivered to customers, we are excited about our partnership with AWS as one of the powerful options to have within our toolkit. This level of certifications ensures that a high level of AWS expertise is shared throughout our organization, enabling our team with the technical skills and knowledge necessary to design, deploy and operate applications on AWS, which allows our federal customers to take full advantage of the benefits that AWS services provide."

Applied Insight is one of only about 30 companies worldwide to be an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner with the AWS Government Competency. These designations recognize the company's significant expertise in helping customers design, architect, migrate and build new applications on AWS, and its work with government customers to deliver critical mission workloads and applications on AWS across the commercial, GovCloud, and disconnected regions.

Through aiLabs, employees have continuous opportunities to broaden their professional and technical skills by connecting and learning from some of the most experienced leaders in the sector and working on projects dedicated to solving complex problems for customers across the federal community .
