As an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Advanced Consulting Partner, EPAM Systems Inc. (EPAM) works with clients to design, migrate, build, and support sophisticated cloud applications on AWS. To strengthen its strategy, EPAM invested in AWS Training and Certification for its global workforce of engineers. AWS requires that EPAM’s engineers achieve Professional-level certification before joining the AWS Well-Architected Partner Program, which enables firms to establish good architectural habits, reduce risk, and respond faster to changes that affect designs, applications, and workloads. Certifying its engineers would not only exhibit EPAM’s high-level expertise on AWS solutions but also help EPAM establish itself as a key industry figure.
In 2020, EPAM implemented an AWS Training and Certification upskilling initiative in eastern Europe, the United States, and China. More than 600 engineers and architects participated in a private virtual training program designed and delivered by AWS experts, concluding in less than 6 months. During that time, 300 engineers at EPAM obtained Professional-level AWS Certification and 200 obtained Associate-level AWS Certification. The company now has nearly 1,000 AWS Certified engineers, with 450 additional certifications in progress as of February 2021. As a result of the AWS Training and Certification initiative, EPAM can provide a more agile and proficient service while increasing client trust and confidence.
