Comm-IT Achieves AWS SaaS Competency Status

Comm-IT, one of Israel’s leading system house for advanced development services, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) SaaS Competency status. This designation recognizes that Comm-IT has demonstrated deep experience helping organizations design and build SaaS and cloud-native solutions on AWS, including product development lifecycle, end-customer skills development and support for building the foundations required to develop complex SaaS solutions on AWS.

Achieving the AWS SaaS Competency differentiates Comm-IT as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that possess deep domain expertise in one or more of the following core SaaS categories – Design Services and Builders. APN Consulting Partners in the Design Services category have expertise in designing and implementing complex cloud-native SaaS solutions with AWS infrastructure. APN Consulting Partners in the Builders category have deep expertise in building cloud-native SaaS applications via software development. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise in designing and building SaaS solutions seamlessly on AWS.

In recent years, Comm-IT has successfully led,developed and produced many SaaS solutions on AWS for companies across many business sectors, including high-tech and startups, industrial and retail, and insurance and finance. Comm-IT's unique, flexible R&D model, which provides complete flexibility in determining the mix of experts, allows for full control of budgets and schedules throughout the development project.

In this framework, Comm-IT accompanies the companies in their digital journey and in their entry into the SaaS world,providing design and build services for application environments or migration services for applications from existing models to cloud SaaS models. These processes require software architecture, construction, and software development from both Digital and SaaS, all of which take into account performance aspects,information security, scalability, infrastructure monitoring, customer experience and billing. Achieving AWS SaaS Competency status allows Comm-IT to expand their business offering and even accompany the organizational change for customers who are in the process of transitioning to SaaS.

Lior Bialik, Vice President of Cloud Business at Comm-IT said:
"The process of migrating to a SaaS model signifies a significant change for any organization in many aspects, including operational, support, licensing models and, of course, software development processes and architecture. In addition, switching to a SaaS model requires organizations to provide service and warranty for the complete solution and not just for delivery. As a result,we need to build an operation that enables the various required tiers,including monitoring and control (MOC) and cyber monitoring (SOC) services, andwe have the capabilities to provide the full range of services. We are proud to receive this designation from AWS, which is a testament to our many years of experience and extensive capabilities in SaaS.”

Arik Feingold, President of Comm-IT said:
"We are delighted and proud to obtain AWS SaaS Competency status. It is another factor that sets us apart from the competition. Together with our unique software development model, flexible R&D, our multidisciplinary capabilities and expert mix of all fields, this designation will enable us to provide our clients in Israel and around the world with the highest quality and most effective solution, even when looking at cost-benefit."

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 Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
