Besides bringing interesting improvements, this years’ AWS Re:Invent conference also brought together the Copenhagen AWS User Group, a Queue-it initiative to assure we are always on top of new innovations. With AWS’s recent keynote announcements, we wanted to share our perspective on the updates, as well as share some AWS-related news of our own.
Key takeaways from the 2016 AWS Re:Invent Conference and Copenhagen AWS User Group
Staying in touch with the latest innovations in terms of IT developments is key for being able to maintain existing services while also being aware of future developments and incremental innovation opportunities. AWS Re:Invent’s annual conference is one of the key events for learning we look forward to each year here at Queue-it.
One of the most discussed services during the networking session from the ones presented this year, AWS Shield, has created excitement through its potential to prevent DDoS attacks and protect data, expanding on one of the key services Queue-it has been focusing to offer to its customers. Preventing bot attacks has been among our top priorities in terms of creating an overall reach for the online fairness provided through the first-in, first-out principle of how we manage end-users. AWS Shield has contoured an overarching architecture that offers protection with no manageable requirements while being easily integrated.
Other appreciated AWS technologies that sparked interesting innovation opportunities were AWS Recognition and Amazon LEX features which now enable the use of services such as complex image recognition and beneficial bot integration to build conversational applications which can provide information, control applications, and even mechanisms. The solutions presented by the latest AWS services allow businesses to leverage and deploy competencies in order to scale faster while providing more innovation potential.
