Why did we build AWS Managed Services



Management Tools

Why did we build AWS Managed Services | Management Tools


It all comes down to customer choice. When our customers ask us for a capability, we listen. AWS Managed Services was built for Fortune 100 companies who asked us to develop the single-vendor capabilities required for them to move thousands of workloads to AWS, and receive comparable SLAs and capabilities of their existing on-premises solutions and outsource providers. AWS Managed Services was our response to this very specific ask, and we are building the prescriptive standards and tools needed to unlock very significant enterprise workloads at scale. We believe that there is a huge opportunity for multiple companies to be successful serving these needs, especially those that are using the cloud to reinvent the managed services industry.
