Word from the CEO:
The entire team at AMS-IX delivered a fantastic performance over the past year. Generally speaking, we had a successful 2015, which has been extremely busy indeed. We welcomed new colleagues and new customers and introduced
new events and activities that we will be pursuing in coming years.
We are broadening our scope: besides being a ‘traditional’ Internet Exchange, we are developing our capabilities in software, working with new colleagues. We are a dynamic, multicultural environment with a good gender balance and plenty of opportunity to innovate. In another 20 years we will still be here and ideally Internet will be perceived as a utility; like electricity, water and gas today.

Preface by the Chairwoman:
2015 has been a year of looking forward. We have been questioning the way we operate at every level. As one of the world’s first Internet Exchanges, built on a traditional model, we realize that things are changing around us. The interconnection market is transforming and new players are emerging. Instead of resisting these changes, we’re embracing them in a structured manner. This is bringing exciting new challenges that make our jobs more interesting.
My focus for the coming three years is help AMS-IX transform, ensuring we adjust to new market conditions and developments such as increasing virtualization. We will continue to be a leader in the Internet Exchange market, maintaining our competitive edge in Amsterdam and growing our platforms worldwide. Communicating a clear strategy is vital to our continued success.
