Establishing a Culture of Innovation at AWS Cloud Innovation Centers
Customers often ask us how they can innovate like Amazon. From its humble beginnings as a startup in a garage, Amazon has not only innovated across e-commerce, but also introduced new businesses that, at first glance, don’t seem to fit the model. Over the years, Amazon has gotten very good at taking hard problems and finding an easier way. We will describe how we use this mental model and mechanisms to help innovate in the Public Sector with the Cloud Innovation Center (CICs) Program. We discuss how Amazon organizes for innovation with its mechanisms, architecture, culture, and organization. As an update from previous years, our customers, Cal Polytechnic University and now Arizona State University, will exhibit initiatives currently underway at their CIC that are powered by AWS.
