He noted that Selipsky was able to get a unique view into cloud-based applications and their importance under the direction of Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff. Cloud-based applications that allow organizations to work more efficiently is an area where Amazon has not historically shown strength, but could be part of AWS’ next frontier…” Read the full article here.
