Wrapping up from the AWS Singapore Summit, the team was heading towards another amazing event – The AWS Summit Mumbai 2018. Well, the Singapore summit was a huge success as we interacted with dozens of enterprises and startups who were eager to be a part of BlazeClan’s new thinking. In addition, BlazeClan received its AWS Migration Competency between both these summits, we have another feather in the cap! The AWS Global Summits are the perfect platform for AWS to showcase their latest offering, product line-up, customer experiences, partners’ innovation, and for AWS Engineers to have technical sessions with AWS fans and to be customers.
The Mumbai summit saw more than 5000+ attendees along with 50 breakout sessions which were led by AWS Solution Architects, Partners and Customers. In addition, AWS had setup Innovation Pavilion, Built on AWS – ISV Village, AWS Certification and their own booth to keep the audience engaged in technical banter. As Gold Sponsors of the AWS Summit Mumbai 2018, we had our own booth (G2) to exhibit our offerings.
