How to evolve into an AWS Next-gen MSP from a Traditional MSP?


The concept of a Managed Service Provider isn’t necessarily new, but it is something that can be difficult for organizations to comprehend.

A managed service provider (MSP) is a company that remotely manages a customer’s IT infrastructure and/or end-user systems, typically on a proactive basis and under a subscription model.

So, what is actually a Next-gen AWS MSP?

AWS MSP Partner Program certifies MSPs that can deliver AWS cloud services as business solutions to AWS customers by maintaining the set criteria and guidelines.

The traditional MSP landscape is rapidly evolving. Customers demand comprehensive cloud-native solutions that reduce costs, improve business agility, and increase security. Next-gen AWS MSPs focus on business outcomes that go beyond the health of individual resources, focusing on four key areas:

• Plan and design
• Build and migrate
• Run and operate
• Optimize
