Amazon Web Services
For over 15 years, Amazon Web Services has been the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, powering businesses in 190 countries around the world. Today, AWS employs more than 100 employees in New Zealand and opened its first office space in Aotearoa eight years ago to support the nation’s digital transformation by helping Kiwi businesses harness the benefits of cloud technology. Using the AWS cloud, governments and businesses of all sizes have access to a secure, flexible and cost-effective environment for their IT services, which helps Kiwis innovate quickly, take their ideas to the world, and level the playing field.
Skills training has long been a focus for AWS in NZ. Addressing the skills gap requires intentional, sustained effort by the private and public sectors. AWS has collaborated with government, education providers, and industry organisations with local skilling initiatives to help the workforce keep pace with technology advancements.
AWS’s goal is to train more than 29 million people globally by 2025. AWS is committed to offering the following support as part of the Digital Boost Alliance initiative:
AWS offers more than 500 free on-demand online courses, with many courses available in multiple languages. AWS will continue to increase access to skills training to enable anyone who wants to further their cloud skills.
