New AWS Competency Designation Affirms Data Analytics Consulting Company’s Commitment to Bringing Deep AWS Expertise to its Travel, Hospitality, and Restaurant Customers


CHICAGO (December 3, 2020) – Chicago-based Wavicle Data Solutions, a leading cloud migration services and data analytics consulting company, today announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Travel and Hospitality Competency status. This designation recognizes that Wavicle has demonstrated deep experience helping customers transform their business from behind-the-scenes operational efficiencies to guest-facing customer experiences. The launch of the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency comes at a crucial time for the industry as it looks to innovate to address changing demands in the face of COVID-19.


“Wavicle already works with some of the nation’s largest and most trusted hospitality and restaurant brands to support their cloud migration and data analytics efforts, and being among the first to achieve AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency status underscores our dedication to delivering the best solutions available to that industry,” stated Duane Lyons, Wavicle Practice Area Lead.


AWS’s global travel and hospitality practice helps companies of every size and segment – including airlines, airports, ground transportation, travel services and sellers, restaurants, lodging, entertainment venues and casinos, cruise lines, and technology providers – to stay agile and accelerate innovation. Now more than ever, AWS wants to help customers succeed by connecting them to partners with deep AWS experience, and a proven track record for helping travel and hospitality companies build resilience for the long run.


AWS launched the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency to help customers find highly specialized AWS Partners and takes on the heavy lifting of identifying and validating industry leaders with proven customer success and technical proficiency. 


“Finding the most qualified companies with deep industry experience can be time-consuming and may not always lead to the best cloud adoption journey,” said David Peller, Managing Director, Travel & Hospitality, at Amazon Web Services, Inc. “That’s why we launched the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency Program to connect our customer with industry-experienced AWS Partners like Wavicle.”


Achieving the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency differentiates Wavicle as an AWS Partner with deep domain expertise in one or more of the following categories: Data 360, Digital Customer Engagement, Smart Assets, Core Travel, and Hospitality Applications, and Consulting Services providing strategic guidance and deployment services.


AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.


Wavicle’s solutions on AWS run the gamut of industries and data and analytics areas of expertise, with most including some level of cloud migration. These projects leverage a variety of AWS services including AWS Lambda, Amazon Comprehend, Amazon SageMaker, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Athena, AWS Glue, Amazon Redshift, Amazon QuickSight, and others.
