AWS launches new services for APAC businesses

Amazon Web Services has introduced a range of new service updates aimed at helping its Asia Pacific customers deploy machine learning at scale, build digital twins quickly and build full-stack applications.

The company has announced the launch into general availability of the AWS IoT TwinMaker, which can compile existing data from multiple sources to allow users to create virtual representations of any physical environment.

Meanwhile AWS Amplify Studio, an extension to the AWS Amplify web development toolkit, will act as a visual development environment for developers to use to easily complete web applications in hours instead of weeks.

The Amazon Aurora Serverless cloud database suite has been upgraded with a new version capable of automatically scaling database workloads to hundreds of thousands of transactions in a fraction of a second.

Finally, the company has announced an extension to its Amazon Textract machine learning service that uses machine learning to pull out important data from written documents, such date of birth from tax returns.

AWS Chief Technologist for Asia Pacific and Japan Olivier Klein said the new applications will help fill demand for machine learning solutions and other advanced technologies in the region.

“In 2022 we are seeing greater adoption of machine learning in Asia Pacific, with organisations implementing a wide variety of use cases including recommendation engines, scientific research, logistics, farming and fraud detection,” he said.

“By putting machine learning in the hands of every builder, and bringing more services to the region, we are committed to enabling our customers across the region to develop new, innovative solutions that drive business productivity, improve lives and protect our planet.”
