  • Most of this is just undifferenciated heavylifting. For example, Synchronizing data across multiple devices is table stakes but actually extremely hard to implement, they have to have right architecture, that scales to millions of users, security and most important complex conflict resolution techniques to get it right.
  • We are very excited to
  • The moment you have more than one device, the cloud becomes the logical place to do work and store stuff.  AWS provides a great platform for mobile developers regardless of where the device comes from, what operating system it runs, and what a developer wants to do with it. 
  • To give you a context, lets take an Example, Table stakes of any app

    Authenticate Users: Lets start from the users of your app. The most important aspect for you when building a mobile app is to deliver an engaging experience. For that you would want to know who the user is. In most cases you would use third party identity providers like Amazon, Facebook or Google. However, often a login screen proves to be a point of friction, so you would want users to be able to skip any authentication and directly interact with the app. But at the same time when users do decide to login, they expect their preferences, settings, progress to carry over.

    Synchronize Data: Users expect their preferences or profiles to be saved from one session to the next. E.g if you have a game, they expect to resume the game where they last left off. To make matters more complicated, your app or game may be available across platforms – iOS, Android, FireOS. If that is the case, users would expect their data, preferences, profile etc. to be automatically synced and available across devices and platforms. E.g with Amazon Instant Video, users can pause a video they are watching on their Kindle Fire and resume on iPad

    Store and share assets and media: Appstores generally have a limit on the size of the app that can be downloaded over WAN. You would want to store the app’s assets in a cloud storage so you can reduce the size of the app. In additional may want to store your users data like pictures and video in the cloud.

    Store shared data: Often you would want to store app data e.g settings in form of key-value pairs in NoSQL database and query it for fast access.

    Push Notifications: Coming back to user engagement, push notifications are a great way to engage your users. You can leverage Push Notifications to remind users of a special ongoing promotion, breaking news, or an update to your app. It’s a great way to bring the users back to your app.

    Analyze App Usage & Track Retention: Once you deploy your app, you would want track how your app is performing. You would want to track the usage of your app and also how well you are able to track retention. Some of the common things that you would want to track are active users, session duration, Revenue related metrics like revenue per daily active users, etc.

    Analytics User Behavior: You would also want to track user behavior or how users interact with your app. Do they follow the UX flow that you would expect, where would they drop off in your app etc.

    Stream data in real-time: You would want to collect large amount of custom metrics from your app for off-line analysis like click-stream logs.

    Authorized Access: Most importantly you want to provide secure and authorized access to cloud services.

    Now lets see how AWS can help you in each of these areas
  • Such services are fully integrated with the rest of AWS offering, are optimized for mobile use cases, are accessible via a single Mobile SDK and share the same scalable, on-demand, global infrastructure of all our other AWS services.

  • Amazon Cognito is a simple user identity and data synchronization service that helps you securely manage and synchronize app data for your users across their mobile devices.

    AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) enables you to securely control access to AWS services and resources for your users.

    Amazon Mobile Analytics is a service that lets you easily collect, visualize, and understand app usage data at scale.

    Amazon S3 as you know is cloud storage for the Internet. We make it easy for you to access S3 from your mobile app using a S3 Transfer Manager

    DynamoDB is a fast, fully managed NoSQL database as a service that makes it simple and cost-effective to store and retrieve any amount of data, and serve any level of request traffic. The Amazon DynamoDB Object Mapper simplifies access to DynamoDB by enabling you to map your client-side classes to Amazon DynamoDB tables without having to write the code to transform objects into tables and vice versa.

    Amazon Kinesis is a fully managed service for real-time processing of streaming data at massive scale. The Kinesis Recorder batches requests to handle intermittent network connection and enable you to record events even when the device is offline.

    All this is bundled in the AWS Mobile SDK.

    The AWS Mobile SDK helps you build high quality mobile apps quickly and easily. It provides access to services specifically designed for building mobile apps, mobile-optimized connectors to popular AWS data streaming, storage and database services, and access to a full array of other AWS services.



  • These services are optimized for mobile OS and make it dead easy to get started when using the SDK. They add a lot of functionality for example Kinesis and Analytics automatically buffer records and events to handle intermittent connection. Kinesis support in the SDK, you can directly ingest large amounts of streaming data from around the world to Kinesis Stream which automatically handles shard. SDK is a great wrapper to handle distributed systems issues, such as automatic retries and so on. Our Mobile SDK adds even more functionality above the normal SDK such as resume, cancel in case of S3 etc.

  • Lets understand this in the context of a mobile game app
  • Amazon Cognito is a simple user identity and data synchronization service that makes it easy to securely manage your users data across their mobile devices. You can create unique identities for your users with information from a number of public login providers

    You can save application data locally on the device and then securely sync and save this data to the cloud so your application can work online and offline. You can save any kind of data in Key/Value pairs such as application preferences or game state in the AWS Cloud without having to write any backend code or manage any infrastructure.

    This means you can focus on creating great experiences instead of having to worry about building and managing a backend solution to handle identity, network state, storage, and sync.
  • One of the key benefits of Amazon Cognito is its Identity broker component. It creates a unique identifer and matches it when user’s login with any of the login providers. Developers have the flexibility to choose any login provider, in v1, we support G+, Amazon and Facebook and you can easily integrate using the SDK.

    We focus on users and not login providers and manage the user preferences for that users.
     
    Implementing AWS security best practices for accessing cloud resources with Amazon Cognito is easy. Amazon Cognito gives each app a set of temporary, limited privilege AWS credentials for each app user to access all AWS services.
  • We have seen that 90% users simply consumers of data and only 10% are actually content creators. Unauthenticated guest users are users just like logged in users. We should focus more on them, build services for them, and treat them like users, not second class citizens.

    Amazon Cognito simplifies the way your application can access AWS resources in a secure manner, following AWS security best practices, even when your application users are not authenticated.  Amazon Cognito creates a random, unique identifier for each unauthenticated guest so you can start saving application data for those users and also leverage the temporary, limited privilege credentials Amazon Cognito provides to access other AWS resources, such as Amazon S3 and Amazon DynamoDB. When your users decide to authenticate using one of the supported public login providers, Amazon Cognito ensures the data you saved against the unauthenticated profile is now associated with the new authenticated profile removing the complexity of managing user conversion.

    By registering an unauthenticated user   or by sending a login provider token to Amazon Cognito, your application receives a set of temporary, limited privilege credentials from Amazon Cognito to access your AWS resources. Amazon Cognito takes care of all the steps necessary to create a unique identifier for your app’s users and retrieve the AWS credentials. Incorporating AWS security best practices now takes just a few lines of code.
  • And Lets first touch on the security aspect. We have seen a lot of developers tend to embed their AWS credentials in their app. These credentials are compromised if the app is decompiled.

    Amazon Cognito, eliminates the need to embed you AWS credentials in the app.

    Your mobile app authenticates with the identity provider (IdP) using the provider’s SDK. Once the end user is authenticated with the identity provider, the OAuth or OpenID Connect token returned from the identity provider is passed by your app to Amazon Cognito, which returns a new Cognito ID for the user and a set of temporary, limited-privilege AWS credentials. Amazon Cognito supports the creation and token vending process for unauthenticated users as well as authenticated users. Amazon Cognito creates a random, unique identifier for each unauthenticated user.

    You can use the unique identifier generated for your app users in your Identity and Access Management policies. For example you can create a policy for an S3 bucket that only allows a particular user access to their own folder thus setting granular access permissions on AWS resources.
  • Architecturally, Amazon Cognito has two parts: Cognito identity Broker and Cognito Sync Store. Users first login with login provider of their choice and App with SDK does the rest.

    In the past, to access cloud services, developers embed aws credentials which is access key id and secret key within the application, this is highly unsecure because it is easy to unip the apk file and get access to keys.

    Now we make it extremely secure by not only create temprory creds that are valid only for one hour but also limiting the access to other data. The users only have access to store and sync in their own dataset.

    Once you get the temp cred, you can access other AWS services like S3 to store video, for example, DynamoDB to store shared data like leaderboards, kinesis to store streaming data logs and so on.
  • Our policy allows access to all
  • We can restrict to the bucket for S3
  • We can add a restriction by username/id but our policy is for everyone who assumes the role
  • We can add a restriction by username/id but our policy is for everyone who assumes the role
  • As we all know the number of devices per user is going down any time soon. Customers have told us users with multiple devices want to be able to transition between devices seamlessly. They want a roaming synchronized app profile so they can pick up their tablet and continue playing a game at the same level they achieved on their phone. Turns out sync at scale is an hard problem to solve.

    Additionally, they want to be able to access their profile even when their device is offline. To date, developers wanting to implement roaming profile functionality in their apps have had to roll their own solution or use a system tied only to a particular login provider. This either requires the developer to do more work or to limit their cross platform story.
  • With Amazon Cognito developers can synchronize application data across an end user’s devices with a single line of code.

    With Amazon Cognito, developers can securely store application data, such as preferences and game state in the AWS cloud. With synchronized application data, developers can give your users a consistent, unified experience on their app across all of their mobile devices.

    Developers can use Amazon Cognito directly from their mobile app without building or maintaining any backend infrastructure. Amazon Cognito handles secure application data storage and sync, enabling them to focus on their application experiences, instead of the heavy lifting of creating and managing a user application data sync solution.

    It manages the complexity of conflict resolution and intermittent network connectivity by managing offline cache ensuring your application can always deliver a great user experience. Each data set in the Amazon Cognito sync store can be synchronized on all devices associated with an identity simply by calling the synchronize () method.

    The service free up to XX million events/month (TBD), and scalable to process billions of events per day from million of users
    Your data stays confidential: Amazon does not own, share or monetize your data.
    5. Mobile Analytics is cross-platform service that works with iOS, Android and Fire OS apps using our SDK, or with a Connected Device or a Server using the REST API
  • Amazon Analytics is a service for collecting, visualizing and understanding app usage data at scale. The Amazon Analytics service is free , reports are updated within minutes from when data are received, and the data collected are owned by you. It is built to scale with your business and can collect and process billions of events per day from many millions of users.

    It’s a crossplatform services, any device any OS (Android, IOS, FireOS) can send data to Analytics service and see granular reports
  • 1. We have made it easy for our customers to get a feel for the service with a demo app, and easily get started with resources such as tech documentation and user guide
  • Quick Overview: Track nine pre-selected metrics in a simple to review dashboard to get a quick idea of engagement

    Active Users: Track how many users engage with your app daily and monthly and monitor sticky factor to gauge engagement, appeal, and monetization

    Sessions: Track how often your app is used on a given day and how often each user opens your app during a day

    Retention: Measure the rate at which customers come back to your app on a daily and weekly basis, after first use

    Revenue: Track in-app revenue trend data to identify areas for monetization improvement

    Custom Events: Track custom defined user actions specific to your app

    Sticky factor
  • User retention is a key indicator to judge the outcome of a marketing campaign, new feature introduction, UX changes, app updates, etc.
    We have made it easy to track user retention with four charts, two for daily, and two for weekly retention estimates.
    As an example, if you look at the upper right chart, the developer of this app can see that he had ~2,900 new user on June 6th, of which 700 came back on the 7th, 390 came back on the 9th and finally, 230 came back on the 13th.
  • Custom Events let you track any action taken in your app, giving you an incredibly powerful insight into your user’s experience and behavior.
    Custom Events are often used to track social events such as number of Likes/Shares, app specific events such as play progress/song played, and in-app purchase events such as transactions per product SKU.

    Songs played is the custom even per session. Attribute numerical value associated with the data metric. Attribute: Weaponsused sword, how many people used the sword?



  • Later this year we plan to add continuous, automatic export of raw event data from your mobile devices to your own Redshift Cluster.
    With Redshift, you can write custom queries to analyze user segments in detail and extract the full value from your data to optimize your application experiences.
  • Forza Football has become the worlds’ 2nd largest football app after just 2,5 years in business.
    We are a team of 17 based in Göteborg, Sweden.
    The americans in the room might recognize this sport as soccer but I will call it football throughout the presentation.
  • Forza Football lets the users follow live scores
    Users can also subscribe to push notifications
    The users can also vote and give their confidence in the managers and squad.
  • This is our numbers since our release in 2012.
    We have got over 5 000 000 downloads and over 50% converts to a monthly active user.
    Our sticky factor is 50%.
    This is the amount of our monthly active users who use the application on a particular day.
    Each month we got 100 000 000 sessions, 800 000 000 push notifications and track over 1 600 000 events.

  • Amazon Mobile Analytics had great features but as we started to dig into the data we realized that we wanted more features designed for our app.
    When we started to ask Amazon about this features they invited us to the private beta of Amazon Mobile Analytics with the export to redshift feature.
    This changed everything for us.
    Now we could get any information we wanted.
  • To be able to rank features we had to divide our users in groups.
    We defined the groups based on the activity the users had.
    We could then see how each group used the features. We instantly removed a feature which was barely used by any of the groups.
  • A couple of weeks ago Amazon introduced us to one of their partners, Tableau.
    Tableau helped us visualize our data easier and with better visualizations.
    This is the results.
  • Bulk update and backin time.
  • Amazon Analytics is a service for collecting, visualizing and understanding app usage data at scale. The Amazon Analytics service is free , reports are updated within minutes from when data are received, and the data collected are owned by you.

    It’s a crossplatform services, any device any OS (Android, IOS, FireOS) can send data to Analytics service and see granular reports
  • Back-Services
    • Use Lambda to build back-end services to perform workloads such as image analysis, document transformation, and indexing.
    • Architect your applications more effectively by moving client-side logic to a Lambda function
    o Easy scalability and more complex functionality for your app
    o Avoid client platform variations, reduce battery drain, and enable easier updates

    Data triggers
    • Use Lambda to trigger compute functions when data changes in other AWS services
    o Creating thumbnails when new images are added to Amazon S3
    o Run sophisticated calculations on data after it is loaded into Amazon DynamoDB
    o Perform watermarking or compression when new documents are uploaded to Amazon S3.

    IoT
    • Lambda functions can be triggered by events from IoTconnected devices
    o Send a customized Amazon SNS notification when a smart thermal sensor indicates that the temperature is outside a defined limit.
    o Monitor and act on device data in an Amazon Kinesis stream, enabling you to easily connect smart appliances, home lighting systems, connected parking meters, or industrial machines to AWS services.

    Stream processing 
    • Lambda functions can be triggered by data stream updates from Amazon Kinesis and Amazon DynamoDB.
    o Watch for a pattern, such as an address, and trigger an alert to perform address verification.


    Data Indexing and synchronizing
    • Lots of AWS developers store objects in Amazon S3 and then run separate routines on a regular basis to update an index of the object metadata in Amazon DynamoDB and enable high speed search.
    • Lambda can monitor when objects are uploaded in S3, and automatically run a function to update the index in DynamoDB
    o Index is always updated, so search engines and other applications always have accurate index metadata
  • STORY BACKGROUND
    Outplay Entertainment is mobile-focused game developer on a mission to deliver fun, free and innovative games for smartphones, tablets, and social networks.
    Flagship games include Alien Creep and Monster Legacy. They have a brand new title coming out called Mystery Match.
    Alien Creep has over 500K installs on Google Play and has above 4 star rating on both Apple Appstore and Google Play
    Game assets had to be stripped out to get the games under the Over The Air download size limits for the stores.
    In their experience, up-front delays at the starts of games is off putting for many users.
    Want to ensure that users are able to immersive themselves as soon as they launch the game.


    SOLUTION AND BENEFITS
    Decided to use S3 to host the extra assets and use the AWS Mobile SDK to download them at runtime.
    They are able to start the download in the background while the user starts to play.
    This has added benefit that they can update the assets without having to re-publish the game in Appstore.
    The solution scales seamlessly as the number of users increase and there is no impact to latency.

  • Today push notifications is the way to get to the app when the user is not using. It is extremely important functionality to drive engagement, retention and overal user experience. Customers tell us that working with diferent push notifications services is painful. They have to maintain serverside database of tokens issued by apple and android, and maintain the infastructure and different APIs. Moreover, sending push notifications to different parts of the world for example china, where there are more than 200 android appstores is extremely hard.
  • Each platform works differently, and push gets even more complex as you scale to support millions of devices.
  • Amazon SNS Mobile Push is a managed, scalable, cross-platform push intermediary service. It abstracts the complexity of different push notification services and allows developers to send push notifications across different mobile endpoints. You can subscribe to topics and and send messages which are then relayed to apple, google, Windows, or Baidu notifications services

  • We discussed user data, now lets talk about shared data.
  • It is highly likely that your app will have some data that you would want to share across users who will be on different platforms and devices. To ensure a fluid experience you would want quick and reliable access to the shared data. As an example, lets take one of the most common use cases in games – many games track high scores, leader boards and achievements to add a social element to the game and to increase user engagement. For that you need a quick access database in the cloud that you can query from the client. DynamoDB is a perfect solution for that.

    So what is DynamoDB?

    It is a fully managed NoSQL database service. Through its provisioned throughput model, it guarantees predictable performance. As your app can become an instant success overnight and your users can increase from 10s and 100s to 100 of thousands in matter of days. DynamoDB scales seamlessly. There is no cap in the table sizes and throughput limits. It uses SSD-based storage nodes that delivers low-latency access. And there is no administrative overhead.

    Now lets talk about how you can access DynamoDB from the AWS Mobile SDK in you Mobile App. In addition to the low-level APIs, we provide DynamoDB Object Mapper that simplifies access to Amazon DynamoDB. Using the Object Mapper, you can map you client-side classes to DynamoDB tables. The client library handles transforming the objects into tables and vice versa, eliminating the need for you to write redundant code.

    To see how easy it is to access DynmaoDB, lets look at an example
  • STORY BACKGROUND
    Financial services technology company focused on the global trading market
    Develops trading, market data, and social research solutions for individual investors, small to mid-size brokers, and developers
    Needed a solution that could provide on-demand resources with the ability to handle unpredictable situations

    SOLUTION & BENEFITS
    Reduced the fixed cost of launching a software product by 40%   
    Reduced product development by hundreds of hours, enabling a more aggressive product development strategy
    Deployed servers in a single day, resulting in faster delivery of market data to customers
    Maintained client and trade record security while simplifying distribution of market data
    Using Amazon EC2, AmazonS3, Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon RDS, and AWS Direct Connect
  • Suppose you have this DynamoDB table called BookStore. It has four fields Id, isbn, Title, and a Boolean HardCover. You would create this table in DynamoDB by going to the AWS DynamoDB Console where you can also define primary keys, read/write capacities, set up notifications and alarms etc. We will leave these details for a subsequent webinar.

    Now in your mobile app, you can use DynamoDB defined annotations to map client side classes to DynamoDB tables. For this example, we will create a mapping class called Book which will have the same fields as the DynamoDB table and Get and Set method for each field.
  • Next you will simple build a book object and set the required fields.
    To save the object to DynamoDB, you will simply use DynamoDBObjectMapper save(..) method
    To update the item again, simply update the fields in the object and call save(..) again.
    And finally to load another book, you can call the DynamoDBObjectMapper load(..) method and use the hash key. In this case we have set the id as the hash key.

  • Amazon Cognito has a simple pay as you go pricing plan, with no upfront costs. You pay only for what you use.   

    Authenticating users and generating unique identifiers is free with Amazon Cognito. Upon sign-up, new AWS customers receive 10 GB of cloud sync store and 1,000,000 sync operations per month.
     
    Charges are based on the total amount of data saved in the Amazon Cognito cloud  sync store and the number of sync operations performed.

    Amazon Analytics is almost free with 100 million events/month and just a 50 cents for millionevents there after.
