Amazon SageMaker Serverless Inference enables customers to easily deploy ML models for inference without having to configure or manage the underlying infrastructure. AWS also announced the general availability of AWS IoT TwinMaker, AWS Amplify Studio and introduction of Amazon Textract Queries feature.
AWS IoT TwinMaker can use existing data from multiple sources, create virtual representations of any physical environment, and combine existing 3D models with real-world data. AWS Amplify Studio is a new visual development environment to help developers easily build and ship complete web applications in hours instead of weeks.

Amazon has been investing in building low-code/ no code platforms. In December, AWS launched Amazon SageMaker Canvas at AWS re:Invent. “I think that there are two crucial components why we are seeing this trend. It simplifies the development effort which reduces the development time of applications. This helps to make more iterations and drive innovation. We have given capabilities to anyone to build their own applications even if they never have coding capabilities,”said Olivier Klein.
AWS also plans to launch 10 AWS Local Zones in Asia Pacific over the next two years in Australia (Brisbane and Perth), India (Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, and Kolkata), New Zealand (Auckland), the Philippines (Manilla), Thailand (Bangkok), and Vietnam (Hanoi).
