Compliance with best practices for managing cloud environments highlights the recognition obtained through the AWS Foundational Technical Review program
SoftExpert, a global provider of solutions for integrated management of compliance, innovation, and digital transformation, has just been recognized by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and earned the qualified software seal by completing the Foundational Technical Review (FTR) program. The certification corroborates the goals of the organization, which recently has been working together with AWS to provide its customers with comprehensive cloud solutions, following best practices in Security, Performance and Scalability.
For SoftExpert’s CTO, Fernando Engelmann, receiving this recognition offers additional security to customers, as it proves that SoftExpert applies the best market practices in all processes and in the infrastructure of cloud services. “Following a rigorous assessment that helped us identify AWS Well-Architected best practices for our software, we are ready to serve customers who want to securely and efficiently migrate their traditional architectures to the cloud, anywhere in the world,” he says.
With global operations and serving different market verticals, with high compliance demands and security requirements, the company needed a scalable and affordable cloud computing services platform that would support the growth of its customers and concurrent users on the SoftExpert Suite platform.
To enable this, the company incorporated new cloud services within the solution’s architecture, and implemented advanced encryption, access control and monitoring capabilities throughout the infrastructure. “We implemented significant changes in our processes and administration, with an operation focused on IaC (infrastructure as a code) and the use of services and technologies to increase security of the entire operation,” he adds.
Now, according to Engelmann, with the evolution of the system architecture and cloud management, the company offers high availability in several regions of the world, easily scaling infrastructure in a few minutes, in addition to full compliance with all security and compliance standards. “We can support the growth of customers and concurrent users on our platform, and we are sure of the scalability of the infrastructure,” he emphasizes.
Relationship with AWS strengthens global strategy
As part of its commitment to drive digital transformation in organizations and offer complete cloud computing experiences, SoftExpert has expanded its work together with Amazon Web Services through AWS ISV Accelerate, a program that extends the reach of independent software vendors (ISVs) leveraging the partnership with AWS’ own sales force. The initiative helps drive new business and accelerate sales cycles by connecting ISVs with the AWS sales organization around the world.
“Being part of the global AWS relationship community and being able to count on the experience of this technology giant is key to the company’s desire to provide the best solutions to our customers as well as helping them scale their business wherever they need it,” says SoftExpert channel manager, Marcio Willwock.
According to Eric Secco, sales manager for ISVs at AWS Brazil, “the growth speed of ISV Accelerate shows the evolution of partners such as SoftExpert, which start to see the cloud as the primary method of software delivery. For customers, it means easier and faster access to unique business solutions validated by AWS. For our partners, in addition to presenting paths for the continuous evolution of their platforms, it allows them to scale their sales through a global program, with direct support from the AWS sales force”.
Looking at the future, SoftExpert intends to leverage the latest in Amazon Web Services technologies to deliver distinguished offerings, as well as expand its customer base and identify new opportunities together with AWS.
