The AWS landscape for AppMod

AWS offers a platform to run modern applications that can balance managing technology and building new capabilities. Modern applications that are built with modular architectural patterns, serverless operational models, and agile development processes allow you to innovate faster and accelerate your time to market. Modernization in AWS is broadly classified into the following categories, where we will highlight some of the most prominent AWS offerings. In the next chapter, we will deep-dive into each compute offering that AWS has.


Serverless offers technologies for running code, managing data, and integrating applications, all without having to manage the underlying infrastructure or servers. With automatic scaling, built-in high availability, and a pay-per-use billing model, these technologies allow you to focus on your business instead of management tasks such as capacity provisioning, patching, and so on.
