Since 2010, ETR has surveyed AWS' target consumer base and end users about their forward-looking spending intentions with the company. Our survey methodology, frequency of polling and round table discussions with CIOs, allow us to capture and report, in real-time, changes in customer demand and the impact these changes have on AWS' calendar year spend. Specifically, the data provides actionable insight into whether the company's products and services within Analytics / B.I. / Big Data, Cloud Computing / Managed Hosting, Container Orchestration, Container Platforms, Data Warehousing, IP Telephony, ML / AI, Video Conferencing and Virtualization are seeing an acceleration, flattening or deceleration in spending intentions within the enterprise.
