Philips on AWS

Founded in the Netherlands in 1891, at the dawn of electricity, Philips first developed cost-effective, reliable incandescent light bulbs before expanding to early medical X-ray imaging, personal care electronics, and even the invention of the CD and DVD. More recently, Philips has honed its focus on creating innovative technological solutions for health and well-being, building its HealthSuite Digital Platform (HSDP) on AWS to drive improved patient outcomes.
