AWS Lambda is mostly in use by our DevOps department with Web portals testing and implementation to support our projects on cloud. We mostly use HTML conversion Lambda functions with our conversion services. It is greatly helpfil to reduce cost of usage and improve integration with Simple Notification Service. Also we work on smart recognition of documents buckets.

AWS always has high level support for their products. Even for new products, they provide fast and consistent answers for customers. Our AWS technician knows the product deeply and can help in most cases with advanced recommendations. Sometimes they point to documentation and demand search and trying simple things first. They provide web links to accelerate the process.

Usability of AWS Lambda is high level. DevOps engineers who rely on this programs provide really good outcomes. The product is well placed and allows us to save money for projects. The interface is handy; after reading documentation carefully, any developers will be able to start use AWS Lambda quick and easy.
Working with Web and mobile apps well suited for Lambda. It provides a clear support path and improvement. Also it helps to reduce cost and accelerate speed of reaction on changes.

A sess appropriate scenario would be when CIO push to implement new technology and services without clear understanding of the results and project needs.

Evaluating AWS Lambda and Competitors

AWS is great product and a close match our expectations. It is close to Azure in function but more feature rich with API and support documents. From my experience, it is cheaper compared with our competitors and provides better interface. Overall our dev engineers prefer AWS Lambda over Azure stack for Web projects.
