BLOG POST | SCOTT WEBER, AWS APN AMBASSADOR

Meet Our Newest AWS Partner Network Ambassador: Scott Weber

Scott Weber, our resident “Cloud Guy” was recently selected as an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Amazon Partner Network (APN) Ambassador, one of the select few in the world! In addition to this major accomplishment, Scott’s name was among the highly selective list of invitees for the APN Ambassador Global Summit. He was one of the few to be nominated as a top contributor and thought leader from the AWS Partner Network community. We sat down with Scott to gain further insight on what exactly an AWS APN Ambassador does, and his vision to fulfill his role as one of only twenty Partner Network Ambassadors in North America!

  • Can you tell us more about the APN Ambassador Program?
    The APN Ambassador Program is a community of technical experts in the AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partner community. APN Ambassadors are passionate about sharing their technical knowledge through public presentations, the creation of open source projects, and social media. APN Ambassadors possess multiple AWS certifications as well as in-depth AWS knowledge. As employees of APN Consulting Partners, they work closely with AWS Solution Architects to migrate, design, implement, and monitor AWS workloads. You can learn more about the APN Ambassador Program here.
  • What does an AWS APN Ambassador do?

    As AWS Partner Network Ambassadors, we are actively engaged with helping customers on their cloud journey into AWS. We share our AWS knowledge by speaking publicly at event, conference, and seminars, share our knowledge through social media, blogs, any type of written form of AWS how can be used. In short, education is fundamental to the program, and really aligns with our mission at EagleDream, to always put our customers first, and educate them on how they can solve their toughest challenges using technology.

    We also help our organizations advance within the Partner network by assisting teammates with passing certifications and helping to achieve Competencies for the organization. EagleDream has a few competencies ourselves already, but I’m looking forward to helping our team achieve even more.

  • What are you looking forward to the most / planning on doing with your new role?
    I first found out about the Ambassador program at AWS Re:Invent in November 2018. Our team learned a lot from attending. The Partner booth on the vendor floor had information about the program and I asked for more information. I was very interested, especially due to the fact that I already had a lot of experience managing training programs and workshops to educate our customers about AWS. Early in 2019, I worked with our Partner Development Manager to apply into the program. To apply, you must be nominated by an AWS Partner Solution Architect and then provide information about the types of things that you have done to help foster AWS adoption and communicate AWS advantages. I was honored to be nominated and am excited for the journey ahead!
  • How has your role at EagleDream Technologies prepared you to be an AWS APN Ambassador?
    EagleDream has given me the opportunities to greatly grow my depth of knowledge on the AWS platform. EagleDream is currently an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner and deeply embedded in the AWS ecosystem. Combined, our team has over 50 AWS Certifications, and we participate in several AWS programs. You can learn more about the full spectrum of our AWS involvement here.

    In addition to helping me learn more about the vast capabilities of AWS, EagleDream has also supported me in achieving several AWS Certifications and allowed me to speak publicly via Blog posts and events such as TECHTalks and our local AWS Users Group. I’ve had some amazing opportunities to educate others in our community about the great things we are doing and helping our customers with in AWS. things that we are helping our customers with in AWS.
