The Culture of Innovation at Amazon Driving Customer Successes
Customers often ask us how they can innovate "like Amazon". From its humble beginnings as a startup in a garage, Amazon has not only innovated across e-commerce, but also introduced new, diverse businesses beyond e-commerce. Over the years, Amazon has improved its ability to take on hard problems and find innovative ways to solve them. AWS is one such example. We have taken something as central and specialized as operating a datacenter, and pushed it to the edge as a utility. When technology becomes a utility, it becomes ubiquitous, allowing more people to participate in innovation. This talk will discuss how Amazon approaches innovation, with its mechanisms, architecture, culture, and organization, with an emphasis on how some of these factors can help other organizations. Our customer will also share how this approach has helped them inspire change within their businesses.
