Leader : Amazon Web Services
Industry leader AWS, which marks its 15th anniversary this year with a $59.2 billion annualized revenue run rate, led Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services with the highest ability to execute and completeness of vision. Gartner cited its broad-based focus on services from handling mission-critical workloads to edge computing.
“AWS’ future focus is on attempting to own increasingly larger portions of the supply chain used to deliver cloud services to customers,” Gartner said. “Its operations are geographically diversified, and its clients tend to be early stage startups to large enterprises.
Strengths: AWS’ engineering prowess and supply chain advantages allow innovations such as the chips that it designs and builds. It outperforms the market with its large financial commitments from enterprises.
