Global AWS Usage Fueled in Part by Release of Amazon Honeycode

By Tracey E. Schelmetic

The global usage of Amazon Web Services (AWS) is on the rise, according to a new study. A report by Infinium Global Research is predicting that the global AWS managed service market will grow with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.8 percent between this year and 2026. The report found that the primary drivers of this growth will be the rising need to understand customer requirements, their changing preferences and buying intensions, as well as new adoptions of solutions with features such as data up gradation, protection, data accessibility and storage, and seamless monitoring of clouds. Additionally, there is a rising awareness of the benefits offered by AWS managed services, particularly enhanced productivity.

Part of this growth will be fueled by a new announcement from Amazon Web Services. The company, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, this week announced Amazon Honeycode, a fully managed service that allows customers to quickly build powerful mobile and web applications – with no programming required.

Today’s customers have a growing need to track data over time, manage workflows involving multiple people, and facilitate complex business processes. Customers who need applications to track and manage things like process approvals, event scheduling, customer relationship management, user surveys, to-do lists, and content and inventory tracking no longer need to do so by error-prone methods like emailing spreadsheets or documents, or hiring and waiting for developers to build costly custom applications, according to AWS.

With Amazon Honeycode, customers can use a simple visual application builder to create highly interactive web and mobile applications backed by a powerful AWS-built database to perform tasks like tracking data over time and notifying users of changes, routing approvals, and facilitating interactive business processes. Using Amazon Honeycode, customers can create applications that range in complexity from a task-tracking application for a small team to a project management system that manages a complex workflow for multiple teams or departments.

“Customers have told us that the need for custom applications far outstrips the capacity of developers to create them,” said Larry Augustin, Vice President, Amazon Web Services, Inc., in a statement. “Now with Amazon Honeycode, almost anyone can create powerful custom mobile and web applications without the need to write code.”

Honeycode is on a limited release currently in Oregon, with more regions to come soon, said the company.
