This IDC Market Perspective looks at Amazon Web Services' (AWS') re:Invent 2019 event, held December 2–6 in Las Vegas. The event attracted 65,000 attendees and featured the announcement of dozens of new and enhanced products and services. This document focuses on the key announcements within strategic domains (e.g., hybrid/distributed deployment, AI, infrastructure, database, security, development), as well as key takeaways from the overall event.
"At re:Invent 2019, AWS continued to demonstrate a relentless pace of product development and enhancement, doubled down on its embrace of hybrid/distributed cloud, and demonstrated new innovation in emerging technology areas," according to Frank Gens, IDC SVP and chief analyst. "AWS' actions — like those of its chief rivals — signal that the next chapter in the cloud wars has only just begun."
