AWS Cloud Enterprise Strategy Blog

AWS Enterprise Strategy Blog 2018 Wrap-Up

Our enterprise strategy blog—like the rest of Amazon and AWS—is oriented around the expressed needs of our customers. We write about the issues and challenges facing the enterprises we meet with, and try our best to give them new ways of framing problems, of anticipating the future of IT, of thinking about the cloud and digital transformation, and of applying what seem (provisionally) to be best practices. Our aim is to help our enterprise customers innovate and ensure that their business is sustainable (or “survivable”) through periods of digital disruption. In other words, we hope that we can help enterprise executives harness the power of the cloud and digital technology to grow, succeed, and better serve their customers and their missions.

Because our blog posts emerge from our interactions with customers, their chronological order doesn’t fully communicate the recurring themes we see. In this post I would like to summarize this year’s 75 posts, re-organizing them into topic areas.

We’d also like to wish all of our readers a happy holiday season and a happy new year!
