So, the German car industry is the next frontier Amazon is going to disrupt: Volkswagen and Amazon have just announced their cooperation. Volkswagen will use AWS as their cloud service provider. I think within the next few years this will result in a dramatic increase of productivity and lots of the 650.000 jobs at Volkswagen will be removed since a worker in most cases costs much more than technology.
So, instead of using a German cloud service provider Volkswagen uses the American company Amazon. Why is this? Simply because Germany doesn’t have its national cloud service industry.
