Here are 20 of the most important AWS products, partnerships and news announcements from AWS re:Invent 2022 last week that partners and customers need to know about.

From new products and AWS Marketplace offerings to launching new partner competencies and revamped technology partnerships, there was no shortage of news at AWS re:Invent 2022 last week in Las Vegas.

“I’m happy to welcome over 50,000 customers and partners here in Las Vegas and over 300,000 attendees virtually around the world,” said Amazon Web Services CEO Adam Selipsky to open up his keynote speech at AWS re:Invent 2022. “We’ve got so much innovation to share.”

AWS launched a slew of new products including AWS Supply Chain, Amazon Security Lake and AWS SimSpace Weaver, to name a few.

The $80 billion Seattle-based worldwide cloud market share leader also doubled down on some of its most strategic technology partnerships such as with Red Hat, IBM and Accenture to offer new solutions to customers.

Finally, partners were front and center for a large portion of the show as AWS built new competencies and specializations targeting the channel around artificial intelligence (AI), AWS Glue and the AWS Marketplace.

AWS CEO: Partners And Customers Should ‘Lean-In Harder’ To The Cloud

At AWS re:Invent 2022, Selipsky urged partners and customers to not slow down their cloud journey due to economic uncertainty ahead in 2023.

“There’s this uncertainty in the air,” said Selipsky on stage during a keynote at AWS re:Invent 2022. “A lot of people are asking, ‘Should we slow down? Should we pause?’ No. Now’s the time to lean in harder.”

“Not in spite of it, but because of the economic uncertainty, our end customers will save money when they dig into cloud versus running those applications on different types of infrastructure,” said the AWS CEO. “Now is the time to continue to accelerate the cloud journey.”

Selipsky is bullish that with the innovation launched at re:Invent this year, organizations can further accelerate their migration and transformation to the cloud with AWS.
