Re: Far from saturated
Even with some softening of earnings and sales, I don't see any problem with Amazon's growth...it's still a great acheivement to get those numbers. And apparently they think so too as "Andy Jassy, pulled in a pay package of more than $35 million." I can't say anyone should be worth that much money, but then again, i wouldn't refuse that if I were in those big shoes.

Re: Far from saturated
@Joe: All very fair points there. I don't know enough about how the internal workings of AWS goes to say for sure. From a coverage point of view, they have a very controlled message.

Re: Far from saturated
@Scott: I was speaking more in terms of the impetus for AWS to begin with.

That said, I've no idea, but Bezos does have a reputation among his critics as very my-way-or-the-highway, so I wouldn't be especially surprised to know that he is directly involved in such things -- at least, on particular matters.

Re: Far from saturated
@Joe: Is it Bezos in this case of the guys like Jassy and others who are running the AWS side of the coin. I'd be intersted in seeing who make a lot of the decisions there behind the scenses. Is it Bezos or does he let these guys run the show?

Re: Far from saturated
@John: I think you have it very right there. I think this is just the beginning of what will be a larger and larger market as we go on.

Re: Far from saturated
@maryam: I think it just goes to show how adaptable and forward-thinking a CEO Jeff Bezos is.  Years ago, he saw the problem of shrinking margins...and what to do with all off those servers...

And so AWS was born.  Pivoting is not merely important to business (esp. the tech sector) today, but essential.

Re: Far from saturated
Amazon has done a great job in transforming itself from just a web store to a tech provider for B2B and B2C consumers. It creates the stickiness that keeps its customers long term even as competition grows. If it continues to focus on innovation I have no doubt it will maintain its edge.

Far from saturated
Most people, I believe, would agree that the market for cloud services is far from saturated. That alone means there should be continued growth for the industry, not just for Amazon. If the cloud services represent more efficient ways of doing business, then the growth should continue even if the economy in general hiccups.
