55% year over year revenue growth and approximately $13 billion in 2016 total revenue (over three times the size of its closest competitor, Microsoft Azure) demonstrate Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) strong momentum. Amazon claims that new customers are mostly attracted by two core advantages: rapid provisioning speed of easily consumable services and cost savings. Research by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) confirms this claim and EMA continues to be impressed by Amazon’s pace of innovation and bold investments in future technologies, such as serverless computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. Exactly this innovation-centric strategy made the sustained and undisputed market leader in online retail, e-readers and ebooks.

The sheer number of significant fourth-quarter announcements (28), combined with this year’s size of the AWS re:Invent show in Las Vegas, NV, (32,000 attendees, 562 sessions, and 996 speakers) demonstrate that Amazon will not take their foot off the gas.  This EMA Impact Brief provides an overview of the most strategically significant announcements and what they mean for customers and competition.
