Virtusa joins a group of AWS Partner Network members helping clients reach big data goals

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., - (November 27, 2019) -  Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS:VRTU), a global provider of digital strategy, digital engineering, and IT services and solutions that help clients change and disrupt markets through innovation engineering, announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Big Data Competency status. This designation recognizes that Virtusa has demonstrated success helping clients evaluate and use the tools, techniques, and technologies that work with data productively, at any scale, and successfully achieve their big data goals on AWS.

Achieving the AWS Big Data Competency differentiates Virtusa as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that possesses deep domain expertise in one or more of the following core mobile categories: data integration, data management, advanced analytics, data analysis and visualization, consulting, and developing innovative technology and solutions that leverage AWS services. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

“Virtusa’s engineering and industry expertise and the agility of AWS enable us to effectively measure enterprise analytics maturity and embed analytics into operations to support meaningful business outcomes for our clients,” said Jim Francis, EVP and head of global alliances, Virtusa. “Achieving AWS Big Data Competency status will help more of our clients achieve their big data goals by leveraging the agility, breadth of services, and pace of innovation that AWS provides.”

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 Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

Virtusa leverages the power of AWS for Modjoul's wearable SmartBelt. The SmartBelt is used to provide insights into employee safety and how employees perform at work. It can be easily incorporated into part of an employee's uniform and uses sensors to gather data, such as walking, bending, twisting, driving, and more. The industrial-strength SmartBelt relies on AWS cloud services and Virtusa’s Internet of Things (IoT) data aggregation and analytics platform to correlate data from multiple sources into a common AI under-laced model to enhance worker safety and productivity.
