Sleeker AWS Console
Amzaon from years has been the perfect usecase for iterative understanding of application usage patterns, addressing and improving the application exactly nailing the pain points derived from its analytics. If shopping cart on its website was an example to go by that has evolved over years, it has taken the same approach to understand the issues from how users are using its AWS management console and released its sleeker version.
