Cloud business driving in 2022, Head of AWS India

Cloud is not just another technological revolution. It’s fundamentally a shift for building businesses in terms of how they operate

Puneet Chandok, president of Amazon Web Services (AWS) India and South Asia and Amazon Internet Services, who expects small and medium-sized businesses to accelerate the growth of AWS and cloud in 2022 will boost, said the past year has been a “dress rehearsal” for cloud adoption in India.

The new normal requires enterprises to have the flexibility to scale up or down quickly, and that’s where the cloud will play an important role, Chandok said. “Cloud is not just another technological revolution. It’s fundamentally a shift for building businesses in terms of how they operate”, he added.

Aimed at democratizing and simplifying machine learning and artificial intelligence at its annual summit, AWS re:Invent, AWS made a series of announcements recently. These include SageMaker Canvas, a no-code machine learning capability that allows organizations to leverage machine learning without hiring data scientists.

“One thing many clients struggle with is skills”, Chandok says.

As more organizations, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, adopt AI, tools and capabilities like these, which remove the need for trained professionals, will help drive adoption. To prepare students for machine learning careers, as well as a free service that allows anyone to experiment with machine learning, AWS also announced an AI-enabled scholarship program with Intel and Udacity.

“India is probably one of the world’s largest open markets for technology companies today”, Chandok said. The country is also home to the world’s third largest start-up ecosystem, in addition to the IT services sector. “There is no market today like India anywhere in the world that is this big, so diverse and open, so we are very excited about simplifying technology and will continue to invest in the country”, he said.

All of these offerings would be relevant to customers in India as they increase cloud adoption and address the shortage of trained talent in these areas, Chandok said.

“The reason customers struggled to deploy AI at scale is because of a lack of skills”, he said. For more small and medium-sized enterprises to use and benefit, simplifying AI and ML could make it easier.

Especially in areas such as media and OTT that require faster processing and milliseconds of latency, the upcoming Hyderabad data centre region will further help customers.
