Amazon Web Services

Top Executive: CEO Andy Jassy

For many business and solution providers, AWS has become an indispensable cloud platform for storing and managing data and running big data applications.

In addition to serving as a platform for other vendors big data systems, AWS offers its own growing portfolio of big data services including databases (Amazon Aurora, RDS and DynamoDB); analytics (Amazon Athena, Elasticsearch Service, Kinesis, Quicksight and Redshift); and data management (AWS Glue, Lake Formation, Data Pipeline and Data Exchange).

CEO Andy Jassy has led AWS’ astounding growth and he is about to take over as CEO of parent company Amazon once current CEO Jeff Bezos steps aside, as announced in February. Tableau CEO Adam Selipsky, who previously worked at Seattle-based AWS, is taking over as AWS CEO.
