The AWS Social Impact Partner of the Year went to joint winners video telehealth software ISV Coviu and cloud service provider AC3, which worked together to re-architect the Department of Health’s Healthdirect platform to handle a peak of 25,000 telehealth consultations a day.

“AWS Partners are adding value to customers across a wide range of industries, from banking and finance to the public sector, said Corrie Briscoe, head of partner success for Asia Pacific and Japan at AWS. “The winners of the 2021 AWS Partner Awards understand that customers can access more than 200 services to innovate in a myriad of ways – including some who are bringing entirely new solutions to market, and others who have been working with AWS since our launch in Australia and New Zealand.
“Cloud represents one of the biggest technological shifts in our lifetime and has the ability to transform companies in a way we have never seen before - that has never been more evident than now.
“Customers want to work with partners who have deep technical and business expertise across industries, workloads, and use cases. They are looking for specialists, rather than generalists, and want to leverage the unique advantages that differentiated partners bring to the table: their customer relationships, deep industry experience, and unique solution offerings that leverage AWS services.
“Congratulations to all of this year’s winners,” she added.
