Candid Partners has formed a business unit that will offer cloud technology support services to government agencies, nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations and educational institutions.
Jared Ripps, a more than 20-year technology industry veteran, will serve as the senior client lead for the new public sector practice, Candid Partners said Tuesday.
He co-founded and served as chief operations officer at Broadgreen Solutions, where he led the consulting firm's government arm.
According to Candid Partners, more than 80 percent of its architects have been certified or accredited to support customers of cloud platforms from Amazon Web Services, Microsoft and Google.
Candid Partners also serves as a public sector partner under the AWS Partner Network.
