Amazon is unarguably one of the top tech companies in the world, but recently it lost cloud computing JEDI contract to Microsoft. Amazon said the deal of cloud computing JEDI was given to Microsoft because of biased reasons, and that’s why they have filed a lawsuit against the Department of Defence. Cloud computing JEDI contract, which worth more than $10 billion, was given to Microsoft and not to Amazon Web Service (AWS). President and CEO of AWS, think this contract is the ultimate interference of President Trump, who is biased toward Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.
CEO of AWS Andy Jassy said that the decision makes other companies who are trying to fetch government contracts hard because of political interference. In this lawsuit filed by the AWS, the company said DoD (Department of Defence) made an egregious error when they tried with its rival Microsoft, and such a comparison not based on a reasonable basis for allocating JEDI contract. The allegations further went on towards President Trump, who got accused of delivering this JEDI contract to Microsoft out of his political rivalry with the founder and CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos.
Earlier, there had been moments when Bezos and Trump shared utterly different political opinions. Trump had been a hard critic of Bezos because of his monopolistic approach of leading the company and affecting local businesses along with US postal services too. However, now, when Amazon makes a lawsuit against DoD, mentioning Trump interfering while allocating government contract makes things more dangerous. The Pentagon assigned the JEDI contract in which they will receive both Iaas and Saas products from Microsoft along with undisclosed information. However, AWS thinks this contract had been allocated to Microsoft out of the personal political rivalry, and now only the judgment by a jury will tell the truth behind this controversy.
