It tasks players with completing 20 scenarios in which they learn how to create fraud prevention, data lakes for financial services, serverless deposit accounts, and other cloud-based solutions.

To begin, users must select an industry, then begin with Financial Services, customize their avatar, and take over a virtual organization to transform it into an industry leader. Users can also create industry-specific solutions to earn a digital badge that they can share with their network.

Users are expected to create real AWS solutions to common problems such as fraud, financial account takeovers, ponzi schemes, and many others. Users can also select from solution building assignments created with the help of top AWS customers.

It addresses business needs by learning, practicing, building, and validating solutions in a risk-free AWS environment, and it provides knowledge that can be used in the real world.
