Denver, Colo. – January 10, 2017 – Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI), an award-winning IT consulting services firm, today announced it has been named a member of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Partner Program in the Government category. GTRI is one of a select group chosen for the program, which recognizes AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners with solutions and experience in supporting government, education, and non-profit customer missions around the world.
“The selection further strengthens our ability to provide comprehensive and agile cloud solutions to our federal, state and local government clients,” said Glenn Smith, President of GTRI. “It is our mission to help them achieve their missions. We rely on the remarkable AWS skills we have in house – and the work we share with AWS – to optimize our clients’ deployments on and migrations to AWS and AWS GovCloud (US).”
GTRI also was named the winner of the divisional round (and runner-up for the overall competition) of the AWS re:Invent Hackathon 2016 for its solution to the challenge presented by the Wildlife Conservation Society. The team provided a creative, meaningful approach to data accessibility and applicability by end-users with little to no technical experience. Tools used included a Natural Language Query interface, heat maps, a crisp GUI and efficient use of AWS Cloud components. GTRI competed with more than 50 teams and 300+ individual developers over 17 hours before presenting its solution to a panel of judges.
