Independent Software Vendor

What's AWS  ISV

An AWS ISV (Independent Software Vendor) refers to a company or entity that develops and offers software solutions that are designed to run on or integrate with Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud infrastructure. These solutions could range from applications and services to tools and platforms that enhance or extend the capabilities of AWS services. AWS ISVs often leverage AWS's resources, services, and APIs to create innovative solutions that cater to specific business needs, industries, or use cases within the cloud computing ecosystem. This partnership benefits both the ISV and AWS, as it allows customers to access a broader range of solutions while utilizing the infrastructure and services provided by AWS.
