Dave Levy: AWS Supports Nonprofit Customers With Cloud Tech, ‘Working Backwards’ Framework

Dave Levy

Dave Levy, vice president of the federal government business at Amazon Web Services and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient, has said the company works with customers in the nonprofit sector to help them manage back-office functions, websites and donor or research platforms, SiliconANGLE reported Wednesday.

“We’re trying to help them deliver on their mission with our technology,” Levy told theCUBE host Jeff Frick during an interview at the AWS Imagine Nonprofit 2019 event. “At Amazon, we really identify with missionaries. Nonprofit missions are accelerating and we’re helping them do that.”

AWS also developed a product development and management framework that involves writing a press release to describe how the company can help address a customer challenge.

“That’s the point of working backwards process. It’s all about what customers want and you can refine that and continue to refine that and you get feedback and you’re able to answer those questions and solve those difficult problems.”
