IT Brief: How the separation of Amazon and AWS could affect the cloud market

Recently IT Brief had the opportunity to talk with Grant Kirkwood, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Unitas Global about Amazon and its impact on the cloud market. IT Brief: Can you tell me what the separation of Amazon and Amazon Web Services (AWS) could mean for the cloud marketplace? Kirkwood: This is one of those recurring topics that comes up every few years. The latest driver seems to be regulatory pressure, particularly with Amazon at the $1T valuation mark.
