      For our Compute services, we decided to use AWS Lambda as it is perfect for quick executions (perfect for a bot), is serverless, and is required by Amazon Lex, which we will use as the framework for our bot. We chose Amazon Lex as it integrates well with other #AWS services and uses the same technology as Alexa. This will give customers the ability to purchase licenses through their Alexa device. We chose Amazon DynamoDB to store customer information as it is a noSQL database, has high performance, and highly available. If we decide to train our own models for license recommendation we will either use Amazon SageMaker or Amazon EC2 with AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) and AWS ASG as they are ideal for model training and inference.
