Podcast cover
Read more
Simon speaks with Girish Nesaratnam (AWS Professional Services) to learn more about how customers use AWS Professional Services, and what it is like to work for that team.
How ProServe helped Woodside develop the Intelligent Asset:
Fusing IoT, Robotics, and AI to create an immersive experience where operators can move through the facility remotely in real-time or back in time. They can see and hear the environment, with advanced analytics providing the continuous insights only to those things that are important or require attention.

NAB Transitions to the Cloud with AWS Professional Services:
National Australia Bank engaged AWS Professional Services and Partners to help the bank migrate 30 applications in 50 days. A major element is a mass migration of applications to cloud to help unlock the cost, risk and agility benefits, and enable their teams to deliver better customer outcomes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk_VHDebpXU

Apply for a role with AWS Professional Services:
Amazon Web Services is passionate about creating technologies and services that help customers succeed. Our global Professional Services team delivers high-touch assistance to guide enterprise customers as they shift to a cloud-based operating model and incorporate AWS services into their overall architecture. We work hand-in-hand with customer teams and AWS partners to provide deep expertise in the architecture, design, development and implementation of cloud computing initiatives that result in real business outcomes.
