Innovation And Modernization at Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent

Location: The Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas Date: Dec 01, 2021


This fall, we are proud to take part in re:Invent, a major learning conference hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) for the global cloud computing community. 

As a contributing sponsor and AWS Select Consulting Partner, we will lead a session for business and technology leaders focusing on how to place innovation at the core of your organization's strategy.

Held in Las Vegas, re:Invent features keynote announcements, training and certification opportunities, and access to more than 15,000 technical sessions and other events.


Session Name: "Driving innovation that powers growth and reinvention”

Event Date: Wednesday 1st December 2021

Event Time: 5:30PM to 7:45PM

Event Location: The Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas

As a contributing sponsor to AWS re:Invent and an AWS Select Consulting Partner, Oliver Wyman Digital will lead an interactive session that focuses on placing innovation at the core of your business and technology strategy.

We see two tenets that are essential to successful innovation and innovators:

  1. Finding and solving new problems that matter to people -- at work, at home, and on-the-go
  2. Incorporating modern technology, management methods and ways of working

Many organizations treat these as separate objectives with different teams and metrics -- the first focused on net-new growth, the second focused on cost. In our view the two should be connected, where problem-solving serves as a forcing device for modernization. 

The first half of our session will focus on the 'why' and 'what' of innovation, by illustrating big white space opportunities catalyzed by shifts in human needs that have surfaced over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, powered by over 100,000 human stories across the globe. The human lens brings energy and emotion to the innovation discussion, the kind needed to inspire executives, teams and investors to embark on new missions that generate outsize growth.

In the second half we'll focus on the 'how' of innovation and showcase how technology dexterity can enable organizations to pursue their innovation agenda with increasing velocity and effectiveness.  The big white space problems that matter to people require new methods, technologies, and modern thinking and acting. We will show the power of connecting customer value growth and innovation to effectiveness and efficiency, and how the two must be intertwined in the world that has shown up. Future market leaders will connect the muscle of innovation with the skill of technology dexterity.



Innovation should be a top priority but is often hindered by legacy infrastructures. How to increase velocity and effectiveness?
