AWS is working with SME-focused associations, such as the World Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (WASME), who will help raise awareness of the program to SMEs across India through downloadable product brochures, educational courses and webinars.
It also plans to provide local professionals with training and tutorials on AWS products.
