Amazon Launches An Enterprise Email and Calendar Service

Amazon Launches An Enterprise Email and Calendar Service

Amazon has launched an enterprise email and calendar service, according to a report by Wall Street Journal. The service will compete with offerings of Google and Microsoft.

The service, reportedly called WorkMail, will focus on security and ease of use. Most of the organization view enterprise email applications as expensive and less user-friendly.

“Customers are not happy with their current email solution,” Adam Selipsky, an Amazon Web Services official, told the Journal. “A lot of customers feel those solutions are expensive and complex.”

Details of WorkMail yet to be officially available. However, the service will work with existing email client application like Microsoft Outlook, and provide the back end email and calendaring functionality.

It will compete primarily against Microsoft’s Exchange Online, which is part of the Office 365 cloud suite for businesses, and against Google Apps for Work’s Gmail component, ComputerWorld reported.

“Customers have repeatedly asked us for a business email and calendaring service that is more cost-effective and simpler to manage than their on-premises solution, more secure than the cloud-based offerings available today, and that is backed by the same best-in-class infrastructure platform on which they’re reliably running so many of their current, and future, workloads,” Peter De Santis, vice president, AWS Compute Services, said in a statement. “We built Amazon WorkMail to address these requests and to help businesses achieve agility and cost savings by letting AWS manage the non-differentiated heavy lifting involved in corporate email and calendaring.”

WorkMail by Amazon will cost US$4 per inbox.
