*NEW RESEARCH* Amazon Web Services: Public Sector Progress

AWS report coverAmazon Web Services (AWS) was officially launched in 2006 and started targeting public sector opportunities in earnest about ten years ago. The public sector now represents an important part of the business, with over 5,000 government organisations and 10,000 academic institutions worldwide using its technology.

Establishing its first London region in 2016 provided a significant boost to AWS’ public sector ambitions in the UK, helping it address concerns about data sovereignty and privacy. Its presence has grown substantially in recent years and TechMarketView estimates, based on 2018 revenue, AWS is now one of the top 20 public sector software and IT services suppliers to the UK public sector. 

In this paper we draw on information presented at the AWS Summit in London in May 2019 and the two-day AWS Public Sector Summit in Washington DC, which took place in June 2019, to review the progress AWS has made, the reasons for its success and the importance of partnerships in that story. We look at G-Cloud sales, its approach to hybrid and multi-cloud, the role of AI and machine learning in its proposition, and the importance of skills enablement.
