We’ve been recognised by Amazon Web Services (AWS) for our long history of delivering successful customer projects on the AWS platform.

We received our accreditation as an official AWS Partner in June after another one of our engineers achieved their technical certifications as an AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner and AWS Certified Developer.

These certifications demonstrate our clear understanding of core AWS services, uses, and basic AWS architecture best practices, as well as proficiency in developing, deploying, and debugging cloud-based applications using AWS. 

Did you know?

As Amazon explains, AWS is “the world's most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud”, offering over 200 fully featured services from global data centres. The AWS Partner Network (APN) is a global community of AWS experts that are able to leverage programmes, expertise, and resources to build, market, and sell AWS products.

Driven by our commitment to excellence and our culture of continuous learning, this accreditation ensures our team stays at the cutting edge of the latest skills, tools and development practice.

A powerful piece of kit

AWS, a cloud service provider, offers access to a huge range of technologies that allow us to innovate quickly and bring our clients’ visions and objectives to life. Being on-demand, AWS is also a great enabler for the agile approach we use on projects, meaning we can provision resources as and when we need them.

From infrastructure services like computing, storage, and databases, to more complex technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, data lakes, and analytics, AWS is a vital piece of kit at TCT.

This cloud needs no silver lining

Cloud computing refers to the use of Information Technology (IT) resources through the internet.

Rather than fronting the cost and effort of purchasing, owning, and managing physical data centres and servers, the cloud empowers businesses to scale up or down based on demand and only pay for resources they use.

The cost and time savings achieved by being able to access data from anywhere, combined with the remote working revolution brought in by the Covid-19 pandemic, has seen a rapid uptake in cloud-based services over the last few years. With new levels of scalability, flexibility, and efficiency unlocked, the cloud is reshaping how companies do business worldwide.

Data security has been another critical factor influencing the move to the cloud. Despite initial concerns about the safety of storing data off-site, advancements in encryption and security protocols have made the cloud a highly secure environment for sensitive data. Many cloud service providers like AWS offer robust security measures that are often superior to what most businesses are able to implement on their own.

These benefits make moving to the cloud an appealing proposition for many businesses. As technology continues to evolve, it's expected that more and more businesses will embrace becoming cloud native and continue to drive digital transformation in the years to come.
