What is Amazon

Originating as a humble online bookstore from Jeff Bezos's garage in the mid-1990s, Amazon has since burgeoned into the quintessential global internet retailer.

The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in a golden era for Amazon, as worldwide lockdowns propelled a surge in online activity, further cementing its dominance.

Today, stands as a titan in the realm of e-commerce, boasting a sprawling operational footprint spanning the globe. At the heart of its online retail empire lies the Prime program, fortified by an extensive distribution network. Additionally, the strategic acquisition of Whole Foods Market has solidified Amazon's presence in the realm of physical supermarkets. Online stores make 38% of Amazon revenues.

E-commerce and Cloud Computing

Beyond e-commerce, Amazon holds sway over the cloud computing arena, particularly in Infrastructure through Amazon Web Services (AWS), a sector known for its robust profit margins that contribute more than 17% of Amazon total revenues.
