AWS ISV Guide to Cloud Transformation

As you embark on your modernization journey leverage the guidance provided here. The standards detailed here are designed to ensure that technical assets are built with maximum flexibility and reusability.  Leverage foundational building blocks maintained by the AWS-ia team to accelerate your development. 

Before Getting Started
Take a moment to understand where you are in your cloud adoption journey. This guidance here assumes that you are progressing into the foundation phase. 

What is the ISV Builder Toolkit?

The ISV Builder Toolkit provides a set of tools that assist ISV's to develop high quality production grade assets. These tools are built into the AWS-ia publishing framework. ISV developers interface with the framework via GitHub. By following the standards and guidance here ISVs can build on top of foundational assets maintained by the AWS partner team. By importing a base infrastructure layer, partner developers avoid the burden of maintaining code that is outside of their core product expertise. At every step ISV developers are provided feedback through various tools in the toolkit by means of static code analysis, machine learning and multi-region end to end tests. All code committed to the repo is analyzed in realtime and provides the developer with instant feedback. Many of these tools are open sourced allowing the wider AWS community to provide feedback and transparency to code enforcement logic. See full list of tools here.  Once a reference architecture is published the reference code is seeded into other AWS services and APN programs.  This model allows our partners to connect directly into multiple AWS programs and maintain one set of core technical assets.


As you mature through the stages of adoption your strategy will evolve. The guidance provided here ensures that you reduce technical debt and build flexible artifacts that can evolve through the stages of adoption.
