Apadmi is growing and we’re looking to deepen our partnerships to act as a launchpad for that growth. We are currently working towards a higher level of partnership within Amazon’s AWS community as well as working with Microsoft to continue building upon our partnership to gain accreditations in some of our core sectors, including Healthcare and Sport. We’re also acquiring new partners, recently we joined with low-code solution provider Mendix to offer our clients new low-code alternatives to our regular services.
