The AWS Cloud Management Tools Competency is a program that helps Amazon Web Services customers identify solutions that facilitate their cloud strategies. It does this by delivering governance and operations best practices. Today, enterprises must balance the benefits of the cloud and maintain compliance, governance, and efficient use of resources. AWS Cloud Management Tools Competency (AWS CMT) Partners allow enterprises to meet these goals. 

Your organization can easily manage AWS resources using a “guardrails” approach while monitoring for opportunities to improve efficiency. 

AWS Management Tools Competency Categories

Cloud Governance

In this category, AWS Partner Solutions aims to simplify AWS resource management. Service providers give organizations policy-driven guardrails to keep tabs on configuration changes and noncompliant actions or resources. As a result, it becomes easier to integrate with AWS management tools and third-party tools to enforce cloud governance. 

Resource and Cost Optimization

In this category, service providers help organizations gain visibility into their AWS environments. Organizations can see resource utilization, workload costs, chargebacks, and other critical metrics. After your organization has achieved cost visibility, AWS Partner Solutions provides cost and resource optimization recommendations to help customers optimize their AWS environments.
