Amazon’s AMZN shares have gained 23.1% on a year-to-date basis, outperforming the Zacks Internet Commerce industry’s return of 17%. The company is riding on the solid momentum in its cloud computing arm, Amazon Web Services (“AWS”).AWS has been benefiting from its strengthening generative AI capabilities.The solid adoption of Amazon Bedrock, which has provided AWS with a breakthrough in the generative AI space, is a major positive. Amazon Bedrock offers seamless access to high-performing foundation models from AI companies through an API.AWS also offers Amazon CodeWhisperer, which is designed to provide generative AI-powered customized code suggestions.The company’s recent collaboration with NVIDIA, through which it will make the latter’s Blackwell GPU platform available on AWS, is a plus. This will aid in speeding up inference workloads for resource-intensive, multi-trillion-parameter language models.AWS’s growing generative AI efforts are expected to aid Amazon in capitalizing on the immense growth prospects in the generative AI market, which, per a report from Allied Market Research, is anticipated to hit $191.8 billion by 2032, witnessing a CAGR of 34.1% between 2023 and 2032.Amazon.com, Inc.

Per the terms, the former intends to introduce a generative AI-designed F1 trophy for the Canadian Grand Prix with the support of AWS.SAP’s SAP recent collaboration with AWS is also noteworthy. SAP intends to embed generative AI solutions across its enterprise resource planning applications with the help of AWS.SAP will integrate generative AI models from Amazon Bedrock, such as the Anthropic Claude 3 model family and Amazon Titan, into its generative AI hub in SAP AI Core.NinjaTech AI partnered with AWS to launch its next-generation AI agent called Ninja, which has been trained using the latter’s machine learning chips Trainium and Inferentia2.CrowdStrike and BlackBerry are other notable customers, which are using Amazon Bedrock to accelerate their business innovation.
