Australian-born cloud management platform, Stax, has announced a strategic collaboration agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Stax, which has increased its customer base by 300% in the past year, will work with AWS to accelerate the delivery of new services, expand into Southeast Asia and North America, and continue working with independent software vendors (ISVs), startups and small-to-medium businesses (SMBs).
AWS will provide Stax with technical workshops and help the company launch Stax Solutions Hub, which will feature customer experience solutions built on AWS that can be immediately deployed into AWS cloud environments. The first solution, Automated Data Analytics on AWS, will be previewed at the AWS ANZ Summit in April 2023.
“This SCA enhances our deep collaboration with AWS and will help Stax unlock new growth opportunities,” said Adam Beavis, Managing Director at Stax. “It will also support us as we pursue our vision to make cloud accessible to everyone in an organisation, particularly marketing, finance, and other members of the C-Suite who are increasingly active in purchasing decisions for customer experience solutions and driving organisational cloud adoption.”
Stax is part of the AWS Partner Network (APN), which is a global community of partners that leverages AWS programs, expertise, and resources to build, market, and sell customer offerings. Stax’s cloud management platform, built on AWS, provides resource-constrained technology teams with best practice cloud foundations and business resilience, delivering up to $1.2 million in cost savings over three years.
“We are excited to support Stax as they help customers and partners to migrate and modernise their applications with AWS in a secure and resilient environment,” said Jamie Simon, Director of Independent Software Vendors, and Digital Native Business at AWS Australia and New Zealand. “Through this Strategic Collaboration Agreement, we look forward to supporting Stax’s global impact as they help customers and partners accelerate their cloud transformation journeys. The new Stax Solutions Hub will help businesses realise the benefits of the cloud faster, enabling easy access to advanced technologies that improve business outcomes.”
The SCA with AWS can also help Stax launch new solutions like Discovery and Renovate, which provide automated benchmarking reviews and reports on a customer’s cloud environment, so they remain up to date with AWS best practices.
Stax’s collaboration with AWS will further expand its offerings and provide cost-effective cloud management solutions to a wide range of businesses, including SMBs and startups.
