Accelerate your journey to cloud

AWS helps Software Vendors transform their technology and their business.
Learn how to start accelerating transition and growth powered by AWS.

From on-premises, to cloud, and SaaS

Digital transformation is now an urgent necessity for both Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and customers. Behaviours are changing and a faster move to the cloud is needed to achieve greater flexibility, minimize costs and align with the trend towards consumption models. By 2023, more than 50% of enterprise IT operations spend will be consumption based1.

ISVs can easily start their cloud journey with AWS and benefit from our extensive services, technical enablement initiatives, business support, SaaS Factory, partner programs and AWS Marketplace. 

AWS can also help you connect and network with many other ISVs – both in EMEA and globally – to foster learning, collaboration and innovation.
