At the AWS Partner Summit, Amazon Web Services partners and experts meet once a year to learn from each other, to be inspired and, of course, to network. Some experts from AWS presented a large number of customer projects that have already been successfully implemented by AWS partners in the past. One thing was clear from the start: a personal partner meet-up was long overdue.
What made this year's event unique: For the majority of the 800 participants this was their first AWS Partner Summit. This shows how the community is expanding and gaining more support across the DACH - region. The importance of highly skilled and specialized AWS partners has never been more important than before. AWS has millions of active customers every month and offers over 200 fully features services in 84 Availability Zones across 26 AWS Regions. With a revenue run rate of $74B, AWS increased the yearly revenue by 37%.
The presentations at the Partner Summit covered a wide range of topics of AWS, which is relevant for all partners, sales and marketing managers. Other topics covered included:
Between the presentations, the participants had the opportunity to find out more about AWS in various breakout sessions, presentations and workshops and to pick up inspirations from successful AWS projects directly from other companies.
