Executive Summary

On 30 July, Amazon Web Services (AWS) hosted the São Paulo AWS Summit 2013. This one-day event was designed to provide information on AWS services to developers and technical leaders. Three thousand people attended the event, almost tripling the number of 2012 attendees.
Twenty AWS partners were event sponsors. Customer business cases were presented during morning and afternoon sessions.
The main message AWS wanted to deliver was that cloud computing is already a reality and AWS has several services available to Latin America (LATAM). Currently, the company has clients in LATAM and more than partners.
Furthermore, AWS wanted to show that its services are also for enterprise companies, not just start-ups. To accomplish their goal, AWS presented several significant success stories such as Magazine Luiza, Rede Globo, and Grupo Abril.

AWS aligned its services with customers’ main concerns about technology:
•AWS has very competitive prices (the customer will pay just what is used).
•AWS’ services are flexible (it is easy to increase or decrease the services according to customers needs).
AWS announced that it is studying solutions to offer its services in local current payment for Brazilian companies. The company received several requests from prospective clients about this. AWS informed attendees that it is is receiving X new accounts per month.
