Until an application project is abandoned, from the moment it is successfully launched, application maintenance is a vicious cycle of gathering user data, adding features, resolving bugs and kinks, and subsequently releasing. AWS does have the capacity to support this, but it’s fairly complex maximizing that efficiency.
Ideally, optimization of an AWS environment should be a one-and-done task, but there are plenty of risk factors to consider and sufficient room to forget. High risk issues (HRIs) are architectural and operational decisions that could very easily negatively impact how a business works. Even with in-house help with the automated assistant tools, it is best practice to have manual third-party help to best optimize for individual needs and requirements the business may have.

The AWS Think Big for Small Business Program is an outreach program designed to provide small and/or minority-owned public sector organizations support in the form of business intelligence, technical expertise, and marketing strategies. With cloud-based solutions and experience, various public institutions globally have seen continued success in government, educational, and nonprofit sectors. While the funding provided can help significantly to meet business objectives, the expertise on navigating the cloud and how to extend outwards towards customers is just as critical.
As newer users adopt the AWS cloud, it can be difficult to watch for issues and resolve them as needed.

The AWS Well-Architected Framework is a set of standards for best practices designed to maximize efficiency, stability, security, and resilience on the platform. These are some incredibly difficult standards to achieve and it is ideal to seek help from a third party to review the infrastructure. Amazon does provide additional tools for helping to verify that an environment does meet standards.
