On Tuesday, Jeff Bezos announced that he will step down as chief executive of Amazon, and that Andy Jassy, head of Amazon Web Services, will take over as CEO. Twenty-seven years after founding the company, Bezos released said in a memo to employees that he will be leaving to focus on other ventures, such as Blue Origin and the Bezos Climate Fund.
Andy Jassy currently runs an increasingly important part of Amazon’s business: AWS, which he helped launch in 2006 and which has radically grown since that time. In 2020 alone, AWS accounted for more than half of Amazon’s overall profit. According to CNBC, “As of mid-2020, Amazon controlled 33% of the global cloud infrastructure services market, followed by Microsoft at 18% and Google at 9%.”
Jassy will begin his new role as CEO in the beginning of the third quarter later this year.
Bing aims to develop their services in Australia, following a threat by Google to pull their services from the country. Google’s threat came on Jan. 22 in response to the News Media Bargaining Code, a policy that would legally obligate Google and Facebook to pay news publishers to display their content. Bing currently holds only 3.2% of the search engine market share in Australia.
According to The Guardian, Australia’s minister of communications, Paul Fletcher, met with Microsoft regarding the matter. “Microsoft, a giant American corporation, an information technology powerhouse, is very significantly interested in the market opportunity in Australia, should Google choose to withdraw its presence in search in Australia,” Fletcher said.
Bing also has an interesting angle in the competition: they have not been listed in the News Media Bargaining code, which means they are not legally held to the same monetary confinements as Google or Facebook when the code becomes law.
