CHICAGO, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Solstice, an award-winning emerging technology and innovation firm that serves Fortune 500 clients, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT Competency status. This designation recognizes Solstice for delivery of effective solutions and providing deep expertise in the Internet of Things (IoT).
The AWS IoT Competency differentiates Solstice as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that has demonstrated relevant technical proficiency and proven customer success, delivering solutions seamlessly in the AWS Cloud environment. To receive the designation, APN Partners must have expertise in the AWS platform and undergo an assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of their solutions. "We're thrilled to be one of the first APN partners to achieve AWS IoT Competency status," said Andrew Whiting, VP of Business Development. "AWS IoT is foundational to the connected experiences we build for our clients. It enables our teams to focus more on the customer experience rather than the underlying technology." Solstice builds transformative IoT experiences by using agile methodology, human-centered design and rapid experimentation. In a recent IoT project with Amazon, Solstice built the iOS companion app for the AWS IoT Button, a simple programmable device that allows developers to get started with AWS IoT and other AWS Services without writing device-specific code. "Solstice's experience with AWS IoT has been integral in bringing this app to market," said Satyen Yadav, General Manager of IoT Edge and Device Services at Amazon Web Services. "We are excited to get more AWS IoT Buttons in the hands of developers around the world - and this app will do just that."
