Top Executive: CEO Andy Jassy

Amazon Web Services has become the defacto data management system for many business applications. So it's no surprise that AWS is on a rapid growth trajectory and recently reported a $15-billion annual revenue run rate.

AWS' big data platform service offerings include analytic frameworks such as the Athena interactive query service and Elasticsearch service; real-time analytics with Kinesis Firehose; data management with Amazon DynamoDB NoSQL and Amazon Aurora relational database systems; the Redshift cloud data warehouse system; and the QuickSight business intelligence system.

Earlier this year AWS announced Redshift Spectrum, a new feature of the data warehouse system that allows customers to run queries on exabytes of data (1 exabyte equals 1,000 petabytes) stored in Amazon S3.
