There Is A New Developer In Town

The software development lifecycle is simplified by the helper of Amazon Q Developer which uses generative AI.

Amazon Q Developer and Amazon Q Business are artificial intelligence (AI)-driven generative helpers developed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that can be used to improve productivity in software development teams as well as business decision-making processes, the company announced.

The software development lifecycle is simplified by the helper of Amazon Q Developer which uses generative AI. It has capabilities to produce code, tests; get rid of bugs and install new code when requested by developers almost instantly. Also, the assistant can autonomously do things like updating software or scanning for and fixing security vulnerabilities.

“Early signs indicate that Amazon Q can help our customers’ employees increase productivity at work by more than 80%; and with new features we plan to introduce in the future, we believe this number will continue to grow,” said Dr. Swami Sivasubramanian, Vice President of Artificial Intelligence and Data at AWS.

Meanwhile, the Amazon Q Business assistant aims to empower employees by providing answers to questions about company policies, product information, business performance, codebase, employees, and other topics based on business data. It connects to over 40 commonly used business tools, maintains security and privacy, and allows business users to access relevant statistics.

Introducing Amazon Q Apps

AWS also launched Amazon Q Apps, a new feature that enables employees to create generative AI applications from company data using only natural language prompts. For example, a human resources professional can use this opportunity to create a new employee onboarding plan based on existing company best practices.

“Employees simply describe in natural language the type of app they want, and Q Apps will quickly generate an app that will perform the desired task, helping them streamline and automate their daily work with ease and efficiency,” stated the AWS announcement.

Building on Previous Generative AI Offerings

These new offerings build upon AWS’s previous implementations of generative AI assistants. In November, the company unveiled Amazon Q on Connect, which provides customer service agents with real-time answers and recommended actions, and Amazon Q on AWS Supply Chain, which summarizes key risks and visualizes what-if scenarios to optimize supply chain decisions.

With the launch of Amazon Q Developer, Amazon Q Business, and Amazon Q Apps, AWS aims to empower developers, business users, and employees across various industries to leverage the capabilities of generative AI, ultimately driving productivity, efficiency, and innovation.
