A look back at AWS re:Invent 2022
At this year’s AWS re:Invent conference, Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to innovation and shared his vision for the next decade of cloud computing. The power of partnerships was a consistent theme throughout AWS re:Invent. And in addition to the launch of new services like SCOT and SAP on AWS Marketplace—which will help customers take full advantage of those offerings—AWS also announced collaborations with other industry leaders such as Microsoft, SAP and Salesforce.
Once again all customer sessions were held virtually.
But it's not just about the number of sessions that are offered, but also about how they’re delivered. For example, at last year's re:Invent and this year as well, all customer sessions were held virtually. This allows customers to attend sessions from anywhere in the world, multiple times if they choose, with their colleagues and partners.

In an opening keynote, AWS CEO Andy Jassy reaffirmed the company’s commitment to innovation and shared his vision for the next decade of cloud computing. He also talked about how AWS has evolved from being a “merely a technology provider” to becoming a trusted partner that enables companies to build new businesses, creating more value for customers.
As part of this journey, AWS has been investing in new areas like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), blockchain and quantum computing -- areas where it sees large market opportunities.
In another session on re:Invent’s second day, Werner Vogels -- CTO of Amazon Web Services -- shared more details about its roadmap for these emerging technologies as well as how they can be applied across industries.
The power of partnerships was a consistent theme throughout AWS re:Invent.
The power of partnerships was a consistent theme throughout AWS re:Invent. Partnerships are a big part of AWS's success, and they're also key to innovation. AWS partners are a big part of the ecosystem, and without them, we wouldn't be able to do what we do. If you want to know how important partnerships were at this year's conference, just take a look at how many times they were mentioned in speeches from company executives and customer evangelists alike (including me).
Partnerships are essential to the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) because they allow us to build on top of each other's work instead of starting over every time we need something new or different. Partners can help with everything from infrastructure security audits and monitoring services all the way up through machine learning algorithms that help you make better decisions based on data points collected across millions or even billions of customers' interactions with your business every day.
The launch of AWS Supply Chain Optimization Technologies (SCOT) was perhaps the most anticipated announcement at this year’s event.
One of the most anticipated announcements at this year’s AWS re:Invent was the launch of AWS Supply Chain Optimization Technologies (SCOT), a new set of services that will help customers optimize their supply chains. SCOT will be available in key industry regions like South America, Europe and North America beginning Q4 2023.
The announcement was made during the keynote speech by Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services (AWS). He said that SCOT would “reduce costs by 40 percent on average for companies across industries.”
AWS continues to innovate through customer obsession and a commitment to partners.
AWS continues to innovate, and looks for ways to make it easier for customers to use the services.
AWS has a partnership with Amazon itself that allows you to access all of your AWS services from Amazon's retail website, at no additional charge. This is a significant improvement over previous versions of this product, which required separate accounts and logins, as well as higher prices than what you would get on Amazon's own site.
It also continues to invest in partnerships with other providers such as Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). These collaborations are helping businesses become more agile by allowing them to move workloads around depending on which platform offers better availability or performance at any given time without having any impact on operations or customer experience.
AWS re:Invent 2022 was a great opportunity to see where cloud computing is headed. For us, it’s clear that AWS has a strong vision for the future of their services, and they are committed to building the underlying infrastructure needed to bring that vision into reality. We can’t wait until next year!
