HOW AWS SHAPED AND RESHAPED CLOUD COMPUTING (Andy's Influence)

  1. Brought on-demand computing to IT infrastructure (and beyond)
  2. Established that AWS was "the cloud"
  3. Brought the Amazon psychology of "low-cost" to IT
  4. Focused on "price reductions" and the new economics of cloud (vs. IT)
  5. Focused on highlighting big name customers early (e.g. Netflix) 
  6. Refused to acknowledge competitors (in the early years)
  7. Used data to see customer-usage patterns, to inform the next services.
  8. Announced new capabilities all the time, not big releases.
  9. And many more....
