Amazon Web Service (AWS) is the dominant cloud service provider, commanding an impressive 32% market share and, according to Techjury, serving over 3.2 million companies across 245 countries. To incentivize migration to its platform, AWS has introduced the Migration Acceleration Program (MAP), offering substantial financial incentives for organizations transitioning to their platform.
Navigating the AWS MAP Contract
The AWS MAP contract mandates that organizations correctly tag MAP resources to qualify for MAP credits. However, navigating the MAP tagging requirements is complex and can prove daunting. The stakes are high as failure to correctly tag resources or meet connection requirements prevents companies them realizing the full benefits of their contract incentives.

Customer Pain Points
- Organizations quickly realize that successfully meeting MAP contract requirements poses significant challenges, with numerous pain points demanding effective solutions:
- Reactive posture – Businesses often find themselves in a reactive posture, grappling with untagged or incorrectly tagged resources that surface only when quarterly AWS invoices land on their desks.
- Poor resource visibility – Limited visibility into the MAP resource environment leads to a lack of information and awareness concerning untagged or improperly tagged resources.
- Tagging uncertainty – The absence of tagging tools and an inadequate understanding of the AWS MAP contract requirements result in low program compliance and efficacy.
- Time-consuming manual efforts – Time-consuming manual tagging efforts increase the risk of human error causing operational inefficiencies and higher costs.
- Disruptions – Undetected disruptions in AWS MAP configuration or connection settings result in noncompliance, destabilizing the MAP compliance environment.
- Credits are not retroactive – MAP credits are not retroactive, only available upon establishing compliance, further emphasizing the importance of accurate tagging from the outset.
- Slow migration – Program complexities can frustrate customers and lead to slower-than-expected and more cautions migrations.
