In a maximum span of 12-15 months, predicted by Analyst Rohit Kulkarni of MKM
Partners. Amazon Web Services have stood as a pillar for the parental head since the company first welcomed its first initial offerings in 2006. It’s also considered as a more profitable venture than their base e-commerce business.
Apart from succeeding in selling items for all age groups and all types of people, Amazon has earned a lot of revenue from its Web Services. AWS reportedly had its third-quarter operating income at $2.26. billion, which is 71% income of the company’s every sector integrated. There is known quality in Oracle Corporation, but Amazon has still managed to displace its business both in terms of name and revenue.
Oracle has had a trust from company’s who store a large amount of database for years, with Amazon being one of it’s earlier customers. Amazon has now left the support of Oracle and also disclosed earlier this month that their last Oracle database used for its consumer business has now been turned off by them.
According to the company’s most recent earnings report, it had $27.4 billion in customer contracts which are not yet to be delivered for longer than a year. Their present clients include Apple, Capital One and Lyft. AWS expects more customers and revenue in the upcoming years. Kulkarni also said that Amazon is still not in a challenging competition with Walmart in commerce, FedEx and UPS in logistics, and Google and Facebook in the field of advertising.
He also said, “When a company like Amazon has scale across verticals, there is the scenario they could become No. 1 in all those verticals.” Since the past four quarters, Amazon has generated more revenue than the earlier larger SAP. Consensus estimates AWS to take over the place of the top in the business Microsoft by 2021.
