(AWS) to enable global organizations to unlock more value, efficiency and profitability through services based on the cloud.
Virtusa has been part of the AWS Partner Network (APN) for over a decade and today’s announcement builds on that success. The AWS Partner Network (APN) is the global community of partners using AWS to build solutions and services for customers.

Accelerate the modernization and growth of ISVs: As businesses embrace SaaS-based operating models, leading independent software vendors need extensive support and expert product builders to build next-generation platforms.
