Top Three Challenges when Implementing and Managing Amazon Web Services

There are many well-known benefits to utilizing Amazon Web Services including operational efficiency, scalability and potential cost savings with minimal up-front investment. However, there are challenges that should be considered when moving to a cloud provider such as AWS.

  1. Lack of resources/expertise
  2. Security
  3. Managing costs
