A recent Accenture study suggests that only 32% of businesses are able to realize the value of their business data.
The underlying technical challenges driving this are well understood: data is increasingly diverse and relentlessly accumulating; infrastructure and solution needs vary by line of business, accentuating complexity; and the need for strategic support to influence organizational value and increase data trust has never been greater.
With over 15 years of experience developing one of the most comprehensive sets of cloud services and solutions, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is well-positioned to shepherd your data journey.
Our extensive data capabilities span databases, analytics, business intelligence (BI), and machine learning (ML), resulting in an end-to-end data strategy that supports virtually any workload, use case, and type of data. AWS can help you enhance data-driven decision-making, reduce operational overhead, and speed time to data value.
As an integral part of our business, members of the AWS Partner Network (APN) accelerate customer outcomes. Working together with thousands of system integrators (SIs) and independent software vendors (ISVs), AWS is able to help customers solve complex problems with modern cloud data strategies.
Read on to learn how AWS Partners are helping customers tap into the power of data to support decision making, visibility, application innovation, supply chain transformation, and risk mitigation.
