DISH Network Corporation is a connectivity company. Since 1980, it has served as a disruptive force, driving innovation and value on behalf of consumers, which includes building solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS). DISH Network uses AWS Service Catalog to provide infrastructure builds to its development teams in form of self-service product offerings that are standardized to be secure, compliant, and reusable.
“AWS Service Catalog enables Dish Networks to take a product centric approach towards how we are building on AWS instead of treating infrastructure builds as bespoke patterns. For cloud engineers and administrators, Service Catalog provides infrastructure in the form of product offerings that provide reusability, consistency, and standards enforcement. For end users such as developers, they are empowered to provision infrastructure resources via self-service easily and at scale. By removing cloud engineering and operations teams as a bottleneck for infrastructure creation, builds that routinely took months are now completed in hours to days. AWS Service Catalog allows us to do more with less time and resources.”
