    API Gateway in conjunction with Lambda has allowed us to become 'serverless'. We have a number of API endpoints that range from simple CRUD operations, through to triggering chains of complex background jobs. Like Lambda, this service has released us from getting bogged down in infrastructure management, freeing up huge amounts of time to focus on solving business problems.

    We need to integrate maps in mobile Apps and Web frontend to show where an event is taking place. Maps is best because of it's international availability and the google api with a feature to recursive search.

    Location, location, location. Choropleths are hot for a reason. When dealing with geography and housing why stop at bar charts, the map really makes my data quickly comprehensible to humans.

    It provides me with POST endpoints; I don't run servers and some third-party services need to POST data to my application.
