Amazon Web Services CEO Andy Jassy is on a mission to ensure a strong market presence for the cloud computing company through expansion ofÂ its technology service offerings and partner ecosystem, CRNÂ reported Tuesday.
He told CRN in an interview that AWS seeks to create partnership opportunities with Outposts, a managed compute and storage infrastructure for customers that want toÂ migrate workloads to the cloud.
Outposts will work to support independent software vendors and software-as-a-service providers as a transitional offering for cloud migration projects, according to Jassy.
He added that system integrators lookingÂ to AWS technology to expand business operationsÂ should observe such cloud tranisition initiatives in the government and enterprise sectors.
âBuilding a practice around modernization and mass migration is a giant opportunity,â Jassy told the publication.
The report noted that AWS is eyeing database technology, edge computing, internet of things, analytics and machine learning as potential areas of focusÂ in the coming years.
More than 1,400Â ISVs offer approximately 5,200 third-party software products through theÂ AWS Marketplace, the report added.
