In the second quarter of 2022 alone, AWS generated more than $19 billion for a growth rate of 33%. This isn’t a one-off — in the previous quarter, the cloud-based service saw 37% growth, continuing a trend of steady increase year over year. The result of all this investment? Diversification. While initial cloud spending saw many technology and IT service enterprises leveraging AWS to enhance their offerings, more mainstream cloud adoption has seen broader industry uptake as organizations recognize the benefits of scalable and streamlined cloud offerings.
How are these solutions being applied across different industries, though? Below you’ll find a breakdown of a few different industries and how they’re utilizing AWS solutions.
As the volume of patient, treatment and research data increases, healthcare organizations need a reliable way to securely store and access this information. This is especially critical given the role of HIPAA compliance in protecting patient privacy and ensuring that data is handled securely. AWS solutions are HIPAA-compliant, satisfying regulatory expectations around the secure storage and access of medical information. Emerging solutions such as cloud-based machine learning, meanwhile, can help healthcare organizations improve their ability to diagnose and treat medical concerns.
Once reluctant to use the cloud given the potential risk of compromised investment, transaction or accounting data, financial firms have become more cloud inclined. As cloud security has improved, many financial organizations have turned to the AWS cloud for help in detecting potentially fraudulent activity across their networks and accurately tracking assets anywhere, anytime.
Many manufacturing firms are now choosing to shift their enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions into the cloud. By moving these ERP tools off local servers, companies are better positioned to identify opportunities for improvement in current processes and pinpoint operations that could put productivity at risk.
The rapid uptake of online purchasing combined with the more recent return to brick-and-mortar stores means that retail companies now have access to a massive amount of consumer data — data they can use to their advantage if they can effectively analyze it for actionable insight. AWS storage and compute services make it possible for retail companies to quickly gain relevant insights.
Logistics & Shipping Providers
Agility is now paramount for logistics enterprises looking to navigate the increasingly complex supply chain landscape. Here, AWS-supported Internet of Things (IoT) solutions can help logistics firms monitor, manage and track inventory from start to finish.
As cloud services continue to diversify and companies adopt more cloud technologies to make best use of big data and deliver anytime, anywhere access to staff and customers, the impact of AWS and similar cloud solutions will continue to grow. To learn more about how an AWS training program could help you further your career, be sure do some additional research.
The result of this diversification? Greater demand for flexible cloud services underpinned by skilled and certified professionals capable of getting the most from AWS deployments.
