Last week I attended the fourth re:Invent conference for Amazon Web Services in Las Vegas. During four days I got to hear some new announcements, gain insights into specific technologies and gauge the mood of the AWS ecosystem. Reflecting on the week, there is one theme that resonated with me: AWS has its eyes on the Enterprise.
Andy Jassy (SVP Web Services) himself talked about the phases of adoption of the cloud, from initial use in development, to cloud-native web applications, and finally 'all-in' migration of core systems. Given that adoption in the enterprise has already been significant in the first two phases, AWS's focus has shifted to assisting the last.
So how are they going to do it? A combination of enterprise-friendly services and partnering. Let's talk through the major new announcements.
