AWS CEO Andy Jassy in an email to employees said that Tableau CEO Adam Selipsky will replace him. Selipsky helped launch the AWS when he was hired in 2005, and then spent 11 years building the unit before taking the top job at Tableau. Selipsky will make his return to AWS on May 17th and spend a transitional time with Jassy. Salesforce bought Tableau in June 2019 for $15.7 bn and Selipsky was at the helm since then.
Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS, has offered five keys to help enterprises unlock digital transformation and begin cloud journey. The first, according to him, is one has to have the leadership will to invent and reinvent. The second key is to acknowledge that one can’t fight gravity. One got to make sure you have talent that’s hungry to invent, is the third. The fourth key is to have people who actually solve problems. Last but not least is speed.
