1Strategy Achieves AWS Machine Learning Competency Status in Machine Learning Operations

Seattle – March 15, 2021 – 1Strategy, a TEKsystems Global Services Company and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN), announced today that it has achieved AWS Machine Learning (ML) Competency status in the new Machine Learning Operations (ML Ops) category. This designation recognizes that 1Strategy has demonstrated comprehensive experience and expertise in building or integrating ML solutions on AWS. AWS Partners recognized as part of the AWS Machine Learning Competency expansion help customers take advantage of intelligent solutions for the business, from creating, automating, and managing end-to-end ML workflows to modernizing applications with machine intelligence.

ML driven applications are quickly maturing, creating new demands on enterprises. AWS is keeping pace and continuously evolving AWS Competency Programs to provide customers the ability to leverage enhanced AWS Partner technology and consulting offerings. AWS launched two new categories within the AWS Machine Learning Competency to help customers easily and confidently identify and engage highly specialized AWS Partners with Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI) or ML Ops capabilities. With this program expansion, customers will be able to go beyond the current data processing and data science platform capabilities and find experienced AWS Partners who will help productionize successful models.

“We are incredibly excited to have been recognized for our Machine Learning capabilities by AWS by being among the first AWS Partners to receive the AWS Machine Learning Competency category of Machine Learning Operations,” says Jen Doyle, VP of Operations for 1Strategy. “We greatly appreciate AWS’s recognition of the dedication and expertise our team has for tackling tough problems and helping our customers find real business solutions with comprehensive Machine Learning solutions.”

“Many companies are reinventing themselves using AWS ML and AI. We are delighted to welcome 1Strategy as an inaugural AWS Partner in our newly expanded AWS Machine Learning Competency Program,” said Julien Simon, Global AI & ML Evangelist, AWS. “1Strategy’s innovation-focused solutions, powered and vetted by AWS, and a proven track record of helping customers, will undoubtedly help many other customers transform their business.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

Achieving the AWS Machine Learning ML Ops Competency sets 1Strategy apart as an AWS Partner with extensive domain expertise and proven customer success. Many customers have reaped the benefits of working with 1Strategy for their ML projects, including Holland America, Boostability, Navitaire, Phase Genomics, BillionGraves, Angie’s List and Entrata. As an example of their ML expertise, 1Strategy helped Entrata, a property management software provider, solve an age-old supply and demand problem with a dynamic pricing model. “With the assistance of 1Strategy, we were able to develop an ML solution…that will have a real impact upon both the student and conventional property industries,” said Ryan Byrd, VP of Engineering, Entrata. This solution “frees property management to focus on people first, instead of performing rote behind-the-scenes guessing of price recommendations.”
