Non-profit organizations have not been left behind in this and have also migrated more and more to the internet and cloud. This has created a need for niche services which are designed and developed especially for non-profit organizations. Many leading NPO's are using AWS based technology to get their jobs done.
NPO's often need some assistance in the digital deployment of their services and they look to certified professionals for this actions. Amazon has created the AWS nonprofit competency certification to act as a reassurance to NPO's that the service provider is able to assist them in their specific needs.
What does the AWS competency program do?
