Build modern applications on AWS

Manage less. Build faster. Innovate more.

AWS—the best place to build modern applications

As organizations look to increase the pace of innovation and build new customer experiences, modernizing how you build and operate applications is key. From enterprise software controlling back-office operations to market-facing applications that become the main connection point with customers, applications are the driving force behind every successful organization.

Built with the latest technologies, modern applications are the solution for development organizations to innovate faster, improve performance, security, and reliability, all while lowering their total cost of ownership.

Technologies like serverless and containers running on the latest processors in the cloud or at the edge, are the keys to fast, secure modern applications that meet even the most challenging business demands. Here are two primary pathways to start modernization:
