Launched in 2019, AWS IQ has helped clients around the world engage thousands of AWS-certified third-party experts and consulting firms for project work as needed. Whether you need to learn about AWS, plan your project, configure new services, migrate existing applications, or optimize your expenses, AWS IQ connects you with experts and consulting firms who can help. You can share your project goals with a description, receive answers within AWS IQ application, approve permits and budget, and will be debited directly via AWS billing.
Until yesterday, experts had to stay in the United States to offer their practical help AWS IQ. Today, I am pleased to announce that AWS-certified experts and consulting firms based in the UK and France can participate in AWS IQ.
If you are an AWS customer in the UK or France and need to get in touch with local AWS experts, you can now contact a wider group of experts and consulting firms during European business hours. When you create a new project, you can now specify a preferred expert placement.
As an AWS Certified Expert, you can now see the buyer’s preferred expert site to ensure the right fit. AWS IQ simplifies finding relevant options and helps you access a customer’s AWS environment securely. It also provides invoicing so that more time is spent solving customer problems, instead of administrative tasks. Your payments are paid by the AWS Marketplace in USD to a US bank account. If you do not already have a US bank account, you may be able to get one through third party services, e.g. Hyperwallet.
