This relationship will help both Crayon and AWS to bring innovation to clients faster, and help them best leverage the transformational power, economics, and agility of the cloud.
Enterprise customers are increasingly relying on AWS to achieve their target business outcomes faster by transitioning to a modern, optimized, cloud-based model.
