    Culture of Innovation

    Customers often ask us how they can innovate like Amazon. From its humble beginnings as a startup in a garage, Amazon has not only innovated across e-commerce, but also introduced new businesses that seem unrelated to e-commerce. Over the years Amazon has gotten very good at taking hard problems and finding an easier way. AWS is a great example of that. We have taken something so central and specialized as operating a data center and pushed to the edges as a utility. When technology becomes a utility, it becomes ubiquitous, and more people can participate in innovation. This talk will discuss how Amazon organizes for innovation with its mechanisms, architecture, culture, and organization.

    Migration Acceleration for Startups

    Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides startups with low cost, easy to use infrastructure needed to scale and grow any size business. But with more and more startups being born in the cloud, the conversation has changed from “why move to the cloud” to “help me build on the cloud more quickly”. However, not all cloud providers are able to provide the technical and commercial support to not only help startups build their infrastructure but also to help startups build their business in an increasingly complex ecosystem. While many AWS startups already run - or are in the process of moving–their entire infrastructure to AWS, our Migration Acceleration program is intended to help Indonesian startups understand the technical and commercial support we provide startups to help them migrate to AWS so they can build their infrastructure and their business in an increasingly complex ecosystem.
