The spread of coronavirus and the resultant near-global lockdown has led to all businesses, big or small, shifting to virtual workplaces and remote operations. With even consumers moving to online businesses for grocery and other essentials, businesses have been compelled to leverage cloud technology to scale infrastructure, access critical security applications and more. Needless to say, understanding this technology and how to make the best use of it has become vital for survival and sustainability today. And this is where Amazon Web Services (AWS), is aiming to make a difference with its AWS Summit Online 2020.
The summit, which was slated to be held as a physical event at various locations across the Asia Pacific region has now turned into an online conference to help businesses through this tough period. Last year, AWS claims to have engaged over 7K developers, entrepreneurs and product managers at AWS Summit Mumbai, and this year, it plans to take that number up to over 17K from India alone.
Over the past decade, the rise of the internet economy in India has seen major adoption of cloud computing services as startups and businesses look to build their tech stacks for various sectors. Helping them gain new insights and a deeper understanding of cloud technology, tech stacks and more, AWS Summit Online 2020 will cover a wide range of topics under various heads such as ‘Innovation with Amazon’, ‘Modern Application Development’, ‘Building Applications At Scale’ and more.
To be held on May 13, at 9 AM (IST), the AWS Summit will give attendees a platform to understand what cloud computing and Amazon’s partner ecosystem can offer new-age businesses as well as SMBs.
