      About the Team
      Amazon is peculiar, AWS ProServe is no different. We aren’t your typical consulting group; we aren’t about signing-off multi-million dollar deals; we aren’t about increasing butts-in-seats or prolonging projects; and we aren’t about selling intellectual properties.

      We are quite the opposite.

      We facilitate partner and customer interaction to increase our partners’ revenue and reduce our customers’ cost; we keep project timelines short and enable customers to support themselves over time; we develop and share our intellectual properties freely to enable our customers and partners.
