AWS re:Invent 2016

Authors: Prabhitha Sheethal Dcruz, Adam Dodds, Chris Morris

Amazon Web Services (AWS) held its fifth-annual re:Invent customer event between November 27 and December 1 in Las Vegas. This IDC Flash discusses the announcements made at the event, highlighting Amazon Web Services' progress along multiple directions — new computing services in the cloud, ease of use, and support for hybrid infrastructure and computation on the edge.

AWS continues to challenge the IT industry status quo, bringing even more traditional IT offerings to the cloud, delivering innovative new IT capabilities, and — most notably — stretching its cloud footprint out beyond customers' datacenters and into the internet of things (IoT). The company is less developed but quickly progressing around the "human infrastructure" needed to maximize its market reach, in its own professional and managed services capabilities and in its rapidly expanding partner ecosystem.
