    Security Automation: Spend Less Time Securing Your Applications.

    While security and compliance outside the cloud can be an endless struggle against long checklists, the cloud makes it possible to both have a perfect inventory of resources and their state at any given point in time, and the APIs to make the changes needed to ensure a good posture on security.

    Moving to the cloud can simplify and improve your security posture by shifting a large portion of security management burden to an infrastructure environment that’s designed and managed to the specifications of some of the world’s most security-sensitive organizations. AWS also provides you the tools to automate many common security tasks.

    We look at effective implementations of security automation that demonstrate why more and more organisations believe and have demonstrated that " you can be more secure in the AWS Cloud than in your own data center.

    Building voice enabled Apps with Alexa voice service and Amazon Lex.

    Have you heard about Alexa? Chances are that you have.
    But Amazon Echo which powers Alexa is not yet available in India.

    How can I now introduce voice enabled applications to my customers?
    Well, there are two ways. Use the Alexa voice service. Use the Alexa Voice Service (AVS) to add intelligent voice control to any connected product that has a microphone and speaker.

    Or you could use Lex and Polly for building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text. Lex provides the advanced deep learning functionalities of automatic speech recognition (ASR) for converting speech to text, and natural language understanding (NLU) to recognize the intent of the text, to enable you to build applications with highly engaging user experiences and lifelike conversational interactions.

    This track will guide you to create real life applications using Lex to create a new user interface for your customers.
