Driving innovation with AWS: more agility, lower costs

Driving innovation with AWS: more agility, lower costs

AWS, Amazon Web Services, was born to drive innovation in the business world. No wonder, it is the #1 cloud services provider, and it is recognized by Gartner as a Magic Quadrant leader for 12 consecutive years. What makes its solutions so efficient, secure, and cost-effective?

Technological advances have turned the cloud from an illusion to an essential service for growth in the business world. According to the McKinsey Global Survey, in 2017, just 6 years ago, only 33% of companies had invested in using the cloud, while 25% planned to do so. According to Gartner, by 2022 more than 90% of companies claim to use at least one cloud (public, private or hybrid).

It is true that adoption and maturity levels are higher, but there are still concerns related to more complex issues such as the difficulty in understanding application dependencies, assessing the technical feasibility of projects, and the most relevant concern regarding cost estimation.

The reality is that business priorities are changing. Ensuring that they can emerge victorious in a migration process, without losing productivity in their operations, and parallel to a storm of uncertainty, is a latent need. Can you imagine the losses your organization could face from a sudden data leak, a cost overrun or a security breach? It’s a scenario no one would want to face while trying to innovate.

The truth is that to achieve today’s cloud and digital transformation goals, organizations, beyond just focusing on migration, must also think about a proper integration strategy on how to connect systems and data, how to eliminate high spending and how to deliver innovative solutions to their customers. And with AWS, the picture becomes clearer.

AWS: a very powerful solution

This is where AWS (Amazon Web Services) comes in as a great ally. It is the end-to-end solution everyone is waiting to access the right strategy, securely transitioning critical operations, and minimizing disruption and downtime during the migration process. Let’s remember that innovation is a critical component of business success today.

One of the main advantages of AWS is its global infrastructure, it has more presence in the world than any other provider. With 245 countries served, data centers in 99 availability zones and 31 geographic regions, it offers high availability and durability, ensuring that business data and applications are always secure.

AWS helps companies break down their silos and leverage opportunities to increase efficiency, security, and resiliency from storage and databases to artificial intelligence and machine learning. There are hundreds of solutions that have enabled thousands of companies to use the latest technology without having to invest in expensive infrastructure and specialized internal resources. We share some success stories below, so you can realize what you can achieve with your company.

AWS Customer Success Stories

Let’s see how Amazon Web Services has managed to adapt to the needs of each company and how it has helped them to optimize their costs and focus their resources on more strategic areas of their business.

Rappi: initially operated with a reserve system which did not allow for resilience and elasticity in critical moments of the operation. Today, it processes 25 million orders per month with flexibility and efficiency in the AWS cloud, and it has achieved 90% optimization of its infrastructure investment.

Bimbo Group: everything related to governance was decentralized, there were multiple actors managing touch points with different tools, processes and KPIs. Today, thanks to AWS, it has managed to reduce customer call times by 40% and abandoned calls by 75%.

Melia Hotels: had a monolithic Central Reservation System (CRS). Today, it handles 2,000 room requests in 1 minute and 8 seconds without any problems, and they have managed to reduce computing times by 60% after migrating to AWS.
