How transACT are building an industry-leading cloud team

One of the most significant challenges in the IT industry is the resourcing of highly skilled IT architects and professionals; this is a common theme and particularly prevalent in IT, and cloud in particular.

At transACT Technology Solutions, we value our professionalism and experience. That coupled with successfully demonstrating those skills and learnings into AWS accreditations is paramount to our continued and future success.

The range of competencies and status levels transACT hold with AWS – transACT are 1 of only 8 partners globally, and 1 of 3 in the UK&I to hold AWS Storage Competency, Well Architected Review and Immersion Day Partner Status – demonstrating the breadth of in-house architects and specialists transACT have dedicated to clients.

Working in partnership with AWS

By working in collaboration with AWS, we have formed an innovative approach to the challenge of recruitment with a focus on training and education from the ground up.

A joint initiative was formed with AWS around their Restart program. Restart is an in-depth AWS program that prepares individuals for careers in the cloud and connects them to potential employers.

After the course of classroom-based skills and training has been delivered through the AWS Restart program, the individuals now move into transACT’s Cloud Academy which focuses on further building the skill set to take the class-based training into real-world scenario based learning in a customer-facing environment.

Everyone on the transACT team has been phenomenal. We are now increasing our skills with training for the AWS Solutions Architect Associate Certification alongside seeing how AWS is being used in the real world, by real people, in real businesses.

I started with the Generation AWS re/Start program and now moved through to the transACT Cloud Academy. These programs have been instrumental for me in developing new skills, especially with the hands-on approach, and that training is based on current industry best-practices.

Education and training for the future

If the last year taught us anything, it showed the value and scale of IT to allow organisations to continue to thrive and survive, adapt and change, and enable their employees to work safely with cloud technology at the heart of this.

transACT Technology Solutions are looking forward to expanding out our Cloud Academy with AWS 2021, as we grow and expand the business globally, educate and train our staff to gain additional AWS Competencies, and ultimately advise and assist our customers with their cloud and technology challenges.
