Amway is an $8.8 billion direct selling business based in Ada, Michigan, USA operating in over 100 countries around the world. Amway needed a single, global authentication platform for customers and millions of business owners' online accounts. To date, each Amway market has employed a separate identity provider and credentials have been shared among the members in a business account. With a dedicated team that was focused on the global solution we were able to produce a business-changing, cost-effective solution using the latest cloud technologies including Okta, AWS Lambda, AWS Cloudfront, and AWS APIGateway to standardize our approach and leverage a single identify provider for our global online presence. This presentation will focus on the journey toward the desired global solution highlighting on lessons learned, team needed, automation of development tasks and cloud technologies.
