He’ll also continue to advise the Mphasis leadership team on emerging technologies.
Duvall and Stelligent have a long-standing relationship with AWS. Stelligent is an AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner, recognizing the top APN Consulting Partners for their significant investment in their AWS practice. It has attained the AWS Security Competency and the AWS Financial Services Competency and was one of the first service providers to attain AWS DevOps Competency status back in 2015. It was also one of the first APN Consulting Partners to participate in the AWS Service Delivery Program. Today, Mphasis Stelligent has over 100 AWS certifications with 50% of its engineers holding AWS professional certifications.
Duvall is 6X AWS certified including AWS Certified DevOps Engineer Professional and AWS Certified Security – Specialty, and he has architected, implemented and managed software and systems solutions for over 20 years. In 2016 he was honored as an AWS Hero, recognizing a very select group for their significant knowledge-sharing contributions to the AWS community. In addition, he has authored multiple books and publications on DevOps and Continuous Integration including the award-winning Continuous Integration: Improving Software Quality and Reducing Risk (Addison-Wesley) and DevOps Essentials on AWS LiveLessons (Addison-Wesley). He also blogs at stelligent.com, and hosts the DevOps on AWS Radio podcast.
“Sharing our expertise has been a foundational part of the culture at Stelligent,” said Paul Duvall. “By educating our customers on best practices and industry knowledge, we make them more self-sufficient, and more successful as a result. My new role at Mphasis expands on that same principle, amplifying and magnifying our expertise across the broader Mphasis organization. As a result, we’ll be able to help a much larger segment of customers accelerate their cloud-based development and digital transformation efforts.”
“The ability to apply high levels of automation to software development lifecycles is a key differentiator for our team and our clients,” said Nitin Rakesh, Chief Executive Officer & Executive Director, Mphasis. “Paul brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this area. Throughout his career, he has demonstrated a unique ability to enable those around him to take advantage of that experience. He will be an incredibly valuable multiplier for the Mphasis team.”
