Systems Operations on AWS renamed to Cloud Operations on AWS

The IT landscape has evolved over the years where cloud professionals are more closely connected to the cloud terminology. The word “systems” has a strong association with on-premises infrastructure and data center environments and therefore does not always reflect a modern way of running day-to-day operations on cloud. Changing the name to “cloud operations” is a natural evolution and a more accurate representation of managing operations on the cloud.
