Unlock innovation and transform the software supply chain with SCC AWS Private Marketplace Services
AWS Marketplace transforms the way organisations approach software discovery, procurement, entitlement, provisioning, and governance, streamlining the traditional supply chain and enabling digital transformation. This represents a massive shift from traditional purchasing routes. However, much of this purchasing on new cloud SaaS based products from new ISVs, vs the more traditional products. Vendors are selling more via, and moving apps to Marketplaces, creating a significant potential for the sales cycle to be shortened.
AWS Marketplace is currently leading the way and providing procurement professionals with a fast route to market, governed under simplified terms. With a digital catalogue featuring over 10,000 AWS cloud solutions in 50 categories, from more than 1,600 ISVs, AWS offers simple provisioning, flexible consumption, and consolidated billing. All from a Marketplace that provides a hassle-free path to innovation.
AWS Marketplace is deployed in 14 regions to 310,000 active customers, with over 850 million hours of EC2 deployed monthly and 2 million current software subscriptions..
