The cloud computing industry is maturing rapidly. It is estimated that over 90% of global enterprises will be relying on some type of hybrid cloud by the end of 2022.
Although the hi-tech and startup world is fast becoming aware of modernization on the cloud, some conventional industries are still not there yet. There are many companies having lesser clarity on how cloud platforms such as AWS and migration of their core assets to cloud could favour the business immediately and in the long run.

That said, there's no denying that migrating current apps and IT assets to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud provides a chance to improve an organization’s business practices, workflows, security, and agility dramatically. It is an iterative process in which organizations develop new skills, procedures, tools, and capabilities.

With customers across India, they are one of the notable entities when it comes to authentic herbal products. The store's infrastructure wasn’t able to handle the high influx of visitors and increase in orders coming through their portal. They were looking to migrate their entire workload onto a new platform that would reduce errors and improve productivity.
