Unisys becomes one of the first companies to achieve AWS Government Competency
London, UK June 21, 2016 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced it has been recognised by Amazon Web Services (AWS) as one of its first partners to achieve AWS Government Competency, a new component of the AWS Competency Program which highlights companies demonstrating technical proficiency and success in delivering specialised cloud-based solutions on AWS to customers.
Today’s announcement marks the first time the AWS Competency Program has recognised partners for specific expertise in delivering solutions to government clients.
