Software new product development has become an obsession of late. We have been talking about it, doing a lot of papers and culling out best practices that we have employed, figuring out the success and failure of our association with multiple new products and assigning reasons for their success and failure of the products/business. One thing that is clearly coming out from this exercise is that new products can be created successfully and engineering it is completely predictable.

Then, we decided as to why don’t we do a webinar and share our learnings based on this analysis and discussions and we also requested one of our customers for whom we did the product development to be a part of this session. They have also agreed to be a part of this session.

Amazon Web Services provides developers with direct access to amazon’s robust technology platform. It offers a variety of web services that allow one to build innovative businesses.

Karthik of Aspire Systems has this to say on amazon’s web services – “For quite sometime now, Amazon has been changing the landscape of SaaS with its offering of Hardware as a Service, Computing as a Service etc – so to speak. Many of these services are in beta but EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) and S3 (Simple Storage Service) are quite popular. There are still some reliability issues, for e.g., amazon doesn’t commit to any SLAs but I think these things will be ironed out, as it has happened with other innovative technologies. In fact, there are hugely successful companies that help ISVs in using amazon’s platforms.”
