Published on

Running an IT department in a large organization is challenging. You need to provide users with access to the latest technology, while maintaining corporate standards and providing oversight to avoid runaway spending. In this session, you’ll hear how Lockheed Martin has used AWS Service Catalog to ensure compliance across the organization. You will also learn how 2nd Watch, an APN Premier Consulting Partner, leverages AWS Service Catalog to manage resources for customers and are now able to deploy quickly and standardize their workload management. We’ll also demo advanced functionality and how you can get started.
