Migrate expensive on-premise applications to the cloud, optimize costs, and innovate new IT solutions.
Retailers are looking to the cloud to avoid the undifferentiated heavy lifting of IT, and allow them to focus on delivering innovations to their customers. AWS and our partners help thousands of retailers adopt modern, cloud-based IT solutions; reducing time-to-market, improving security, and most importantly, facilitating business agility.


Increase business agility
Innovate faster and scale when needed. AWS offers the broad set of global cloud-based products including compute, storage, analytics, IoT, and security.
Lower costs
AWS allows retailers to take advantage of the widest array of compute, storage, database, and analytics capabilities to optimize performance, innovate faster, and drive down operating costs of workloads.
IT automation
AWS provides many tools to automate IT like CI/CD processes, cloud formation templates, monitoring and alerting of cloud components, and security audits to make retailers more efficient and effective.
Enhanced security
Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you benefit from a data center and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations.
