“Developers love using AWS Amplify because it makes it easier to build a scalable web application backend powered by AWS, and they often tell us that they wish that we could extend that same fast, flexible development experience to the UI creation process,” said Kurt Kufeld, VP of AWS Platform at AWS. “AWS Amplify Studio is a game changer for developers because it allows them to rapidly iterate on their UI using prebuilt components and then fully customize the UI with familiar programming languages to meet their exact needs. From setting up a robust backend powered by AWS to creating a dynamic UI, AWS Amplify now provides an intuitive, end-to-end workflow to build web applications in days instead of weeks, so developers can deliver new innovations to end users faster.”
AWS Amplify Studio is available in preview today in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London), EU (Paris), EU (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), and South America (São Paulo), with availability in additional AWS Regions coming soon.
Rivian is an electric vehicle maker and automotive technology company focused on sustainable transportation. “We chose to build our supply chain management application with AWS Amplify because it eliminates the complexities of DevOps in the cloud, allows us to reduce our deployment cycle from every two weeks to every two days, and more easily adopt new technologies like serverless,” said Arunkumar Chandran, Staff Software Engineer at Rivian. “We are excited about the launch of AWS Amplify Studio because it extends the benefits of AWS Amplify to our frontend development process. With AWS Amplify Studio, our developers will be able to save time and quickly iterate on their UI using a simple visual interface, while still having the option to dive into the code to fully customize the experience for end users.”
QsrSoft is a software-as-a-service company that develops solutions for clients in the restaurant, hospitality, and retail industries to help them achieve operational excellence. “We used AWS Amplify to develop QsrSoft TV, a new digital huddle board to help our customers improve employee engagement through gamification, real-time communication, and employee recognition programs, because it allowed us to create our application quickly, get to market faster, and take advantage of the performance and scalability of a fully serverless application stack,” said Adam Pehas, Director of Development at QsrSoft. “By using AWS Amplify Studio’s pre-built library of components and intuitive visual interface, we will be able to accelerate our development timelines, add additional value, and deliver new capabilities to our customers. AWS Amplify Studio will help us boost awareness, motivate our customers’ employees, and achieve operational excellence.”
Xerris is an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner that specializes in providing technology-focused solutions for media and entertainment, energy, public sector, and retail companies. “Our development teams use AWS Amplify to create innovative applications for clients because it allows them to quickly build and ship web and mobile applications, rapidly iterate, and get them to market using scalable cloud services while providing extensibility so customers can take advantage of the breadth and depth of AWS as their needs evolve,” said Jonathan McCracken, CTO at Xerris. “We look forward to using AWS Amplify Studio because it makes it even easier for our development and UX design teams to seamlessly collaborate and rapidly iterate on applications to meet our clients’ needs. AWS Amplify Studio will save our developers time while providing the flexibility and control our developers want to fully optimize the end-user experience.”
