Spokane companies generally aren't pushing the boundaries of cloud technology. Except for a few, and one of the best examples is Liberty Lake-based 2nd Watch, Inc..
We at Officehours haven't called 2nd Watch's number all that often this year. This week we do have one news item that brings them into a bit more focus.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has created a "premier consulting partner" system to establish a top tier of providers it regards as key providers of cloud services. It recently named 2nd Watch part of the program.
A press release noted 2nd Watch is part of 15 companies given the premier consulting partner designation.
The release added: "The achievement ... from Amazon Web Services represents a major milestone in our strategic plan. Our success can be attributed to forward-thinking leadership, a highly technical and operationally-focused staff, and numerous positive customer experiences," stated 2nd Watch co-founder and president Jeff Aden.
"This recognition highlights our commitment to bringing AWS to companies, allowing them to become more agile and freeing up additional capital for strategic business expansion."
