TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! HOPEFUL POLITICOS AND BIZ COMMUNITY CLAIM CERNER COLLABO WITH AWS PUSHES KANSAS CITY HIGHER IN THE RANKINGS TO GARNER AMAZON HQ2!!!
The local elite are jumping aboard the latest tech bandwagon and touting good news for Kansas City this week.
AWS and Cerner plan to announce a deeper partnership at AWS re:Invent this week. Our blog community of KICK-ASS TKC INSIDERS talked about this topic before any other news outlet in the metro . . .
This morning here's local news playing ketchup . . .
KC Biz Journal: Cerner reportedly will partner with Amazon on population health efforts
And so . . .
BEHIND THE SCENES KANSAS CITY'S TOP RANKING POLITICOS AND BIZ ELITE ARE PUSHING THIS DEVELOPMENT AS 'PROOF' THIS COWTOWN IS MOVING UP IN THE AMAZON HQ2 RANKINGS!!!
KC Insider offers a tidbit from a rough draft of an u: "This deal shows us that the entire businesses community in the Kansas City metro has a lot to offer Amazon. Obviously, we hope this local partnership will lead to great success and even more cooperation in the future . . ."
This digital chest thumping is important given that Mayor Sly's spam campaign was seen as "desperate" by most of the tech community.
And so we turn to our cavalcade of angry bloggy commenters for real world perspective on Internets biz hype . . .
DOES THE CERNER DEAL WITH AWS MOVE KANSAS CITY CLOSER TO HOSTING AMAZON HQ2???
More than the airport or any other new shiny toy - The prospect of garnering 50k jobs helping to ship cheap Chinese junk across the nation actually would be a great achievement for the Kansas City biz class . . . Or at least that's part of the ongoing "momentum" pep talk they're giving to everybody else.
You decide . . .
