Thinking of Amazon Alexa for business will bring voice enabled artificial intelligence and the power of the cloud to businesses large and small.
Amazon has launched a new effort to accelerate the use of Alexa in the workplace, including empowering the Alexa virtual assistant to help employees do things like order supplies, pull together meetings, book conference rooms, tap into corporate data as well as manage all the other functions the current Alexa can.

So now you can ask Alexa things like “Tell me the list of opportunities for the first quarter”.
