IT operations are at the heart of every organization. Operating in the cloud allows IT teams to focus on business outcomes, optimizing IT processes while accelerating software development and innovation.
These days, it is no longer a question if your organization is moving to the cloud, but how fast you can move with security, visibility, control, and safety. Companies of every size have realized benefits from moving to AWS cloud, including a lower cost of operations, stronger operational resilience, and a smaller carbon footprint. Organizations moving large portfolios of legacy applications, ITIL-based processes, and datacenters to the cloud want a secure and efficient way to manage and govern their infrastructure and applications in the cloud, on-premises, and at the edge.
AWS Cloud Operations provides a model and tools for a secure and efficient way to operate in the cloud. You can transform your organization, modernize and migrate your applications, and accelerate innovation with AWS.

Built for operating at cloud scale
At Amazon, operational excellence is in our DNA. We’ve taken operational tools, developed and used internally at Amazon, and offered them as AWS services. AWS services are built for operating at cloud scale, in the cloud, on-premises, and at the edge. Additionally, most organizations assume that they need to give up governance, security, and compliance for speed, automation, and innovation. With AWS, you can have both business agility and governance, providing a foundation to transform your IT operations into an agile, build-and-iterate operating environment.
It’s easy to set up a foundation for operations with governance built-in. Create an environment that is secure, scalable, and cost-efficient. Quickly prepare for business workload migration. With AWS, you can easily set up a secure, multi-account AWS environment based on best practices.
AWS works with your existing operations by integrating with tools such as ServiceNow and Jira Service Desk. You can automate IT operations to quickly and efficiently inventory, organize, secure, and manage your environments, resources, and applications. Define, test, monitor, and recover applications across your environments from a central operations hub.
The quality of your observability can drive application availability and performance. Measure how well your system or applications are performing by collecting and analyzing outputs such as logs, metrics, and traces. This insight allows operations teams to quickly detect, investigate, and remediate problems.
Organizations of all sizes operate in a compliance landscape that is complex, dynamic, and evolving rapidly, facing internal requirements as well as external industry, national, and international regulations such as HIPAA, SOC, and PCI-DSS. With AWS, you can implement compliance processes faster and more easily with automation, ready-to-use templates, and best practices built-in. Compliance guardrails help you detect and flag suspicious activity so you can take action quickly.
Optimize IT costs
When moving to the cloud, organizations often rethink their traditional IT financial management. AWS offers tools to help set expectations around cloud costs for your projects and applications, making it easier for all roles in your organization to manage and control costs. You can also uncover cost insights and optimization opportunities, and optimize spend based on usage.
