AWS is strengthening its ecosystem through training programs, helping enterprises make better use of its cloud platform, ISG Provider Lens™ report says
Enterprises in the U.S. are benefiting from growing investments in developer training by AWS, which remains the country’s most-used public cloud provider, according to a new research report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.
The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ AWS Ecosystem Partners report for the U.S. finds that AWS is providing stronger support for its developer ecosystem through free, ongoing training, a move that has eased the shortage of skilled cloud resources in the U.S. and made the company more competitive.
The U.S. remains AWS’s biggest market, with 70 percent of U.S. public cloud customers using AWS, ISG says. For many U.S. enterprises, AWS forms the foundation of multi-cloud environments that also include features supplied by Google and Microsoft. AWS is offering more training for both enterprise and service provider developers to keep the market current on its evolving technologies.
“To remain the first choice of many U.S. companies, AWS is investing in skills development,” said Bernie Hoecker, ISG partner and Enterprise Cloud Transformation leader. “A thriving ecosystem drives ongoing use and adoption of its platform.”
Google and Microsoft are challenging AWS by introducing highly advanced tools for analytics, AI and machine learning in the cloud, ISG says. These offerings, including tools from Google’s DeepMind and Microsoft’s partnership with OpenAI, often enter the mix first in the U.S., traditionally an early adopter of cloud technologies.
U.S. companies in some sectors are also beginning to adopt industry clouds, which are tuned to requirements in specific fields, such as health care, the report says. AWS is a first mover in this area, building on expertise in areas such as cloud governance that it has developed over years of experience. Service providers are helping clients implement these platforms. Demand is highest at large enterprises that are mature cloud users, especially in the U.S., the report says.
“As companies in specialized industries look for cloud implementations that meet their specific needs, the market for AWS consulting services is growing,” said Jan Erik Aase, partner and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research.
Managed services has become the fastest-growing part of the AWS provider ecosystem, with clients seeking strong cloud security features and automated cloud management, the report says. AWS migration services are also increasingly in demand, as large enterprises face a critical and complex task when they move essential data and processes to the cloud.
The report also explores other trends affecting the AWS ecosystem in the U.S., including the migration of SAP workloads to AWS and the growing popularity of AWS IoT services.
