VMware Tanzu Labs Joins the AWS Partner Network as a Consulting Partner

December 3, 2020 Danielle Burrow

We’re thrilled to announce that VMware Tanzu Labs is now an AWS Partner Network (APN) Consulting Partner for app modernization and software development.

VMware Tanzu Labs is the software consulting arm of VMware Tanzu, itself a long-time Advanced AWS Technology Partner. Now, through this expanded partnership, any AWS customer (including VMware Cloud on AWS customers) can engage seasoned experts in cloud native software development to assist with the analysis, disposition, migration, and modernization of their entire application portfolio.

While this partnership is new, Tanzu Labs has decades of experience helping leading companies build digital products and modernize business-critical applications on AWS, including Duke Energy, Comcast, NASDAQ, and BT Group. Tanzu Labs is known for its collaborative approach, which enables its clients to become experts in agile software development while adopting a culture of product-centric, cloud native software development. Its holistic and iterative methodologies yield both value-driven application modernization and faster adoption of both AWS and cloud native technologies.

Tanzu Labs brings best-in-class talent and tools to identify and execute modernization strategies that quickly yield business results. Starting with a short, focused VMware App Navigator engagement, modernization experts work with your team to assess your app estate through technical spikes and business analysis, then validate a plan with actual app modernization work. Identifying and mitigating obstacles along the path to production is a key part of an App Navigator engagement as it helps to reduce the level of risk in your modernization strategy to deliver results quickly.

Then we’ll get to work executing your modernization strategy. Whether you're containerizing and migrating applications to the cloud, tackling a gnarly back-end system, or reimagining a digital customer experience, Tanzu Labs helps you get to production faster. 

Here’s a breakdown of Tanzu Labs’ iterative and outcome-based approach to app modernization:

Move fast with evidence – We use automation and other tools to quickly obtain quantitative and qualitative data that informs the direction of your modernization strategy, and build an initial backlog so your project has a running start with minimal risk.

Create an actionable and value-driven plan – We create an outcome-oriented road map, with clear next steps, that is flexible and can evolve to deliver what your business or organization needs, regardless of who does the work.

Expand your team’s skills – We work alongside your practitioners or partners to impart proven practices and offer access to a library of resources that will set you up for success long after our engagement ends.
