Urban SDK and Amazon Web Services Collaborate to Modernize Operations in the Public Sector
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urban SDK – a SaaS company providing data analytics and predictive insights to cities, empowering them to make data-driven policy decisions and plan more integrated communities – today announces its participation in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Partner Program to continue to drive innovation within the public sector.
In collaboration with AWS, Urban SDK will work to bypass common constraints in the public sector, including having localized servers to store data, mitigation concerns, security concerns and more, ultimately modernizing the way government entities operate.
“Most government entities are currently using antiquated processes and are generally behind the curve on adopting new technologies and creating a digital infrastructure,” said Drew Messer, CEO and co-founder of Urban SDK. “We see the future of public agencies being cloud-based, which is why collaborating with AWS is crucial as it continues to prioritize growth in this sector.”
The AWS Public Sector Partner Program recognizes cloud-based solutions across government, space, education and nonprofits around the world with the goal of working together to grow public sector business through alignment with sales, marketing, funding, capture and proposal teams.
To be considered for the program, Urban SDK completed specific trainings, including the AWS Well-Architected Framework, a step-by-step guide for cloud architects to utilize when building secure, high-performing, resilient and efficient infrastructure for their applications and workloads.
Urban SDK recently received $1.66 million in funding from the Florida Opportunity Fund and DeepWork Capital. Between its funding and its work with AWS, Urban SDK is poised to expand into new markets and provide 90,000 state and local government agencies across the United States with the necessary tools to plan the interconnected cities of the future.
