Q: What is a customer reference?
A: A customer reference is a marketing asset in which a customer speaks positively about a partner. A
reference can take many forms, including case studies, video testimonials, blog posts, summary
statements, etc.
Q: What is a case study?
A: A case study is a written document that explores a customer challenge, a partner solution, and the
benefits of that solution. It is a type of customer reference.
Q: What does AWS require in a case study?
A: Individual AWS programs will provide details about specific requirements for case studies. Case
studies should be identified in writing to AWS as being either public (can be shared with public
audiences) or non-public (can only be shared with AWS and its third-party auditor for the purpose of the
audit or demonstrating to AWS that the partner is meeting program requirements).
Q: Why should partners create case studies?
A: Case studies showcase the value that partners offer to customers. Case studies are key for partners to
establish rapport and credibility with AWS and its customers. Additionally, APN partners may leverage
their case studies to attract new customers. Case studies demonstrate how partners maintain a strong
AWS-based practice as well as their ability to deliver for customers.
Q: How does the APN use partner-created case studies?

understanding of partners’ customer engagements, problem-solving, and deployment of AWS services.

partners submit case studies. The relevant APN team and auditors review these case studies. They verify
that the partner has built a functional ecosystem, solution, or workload area. The teams review the AWS
