Service Owner as of 9/25/17 is: Jose Boveda <firstname.lastname@example.org)>
Josh Van Horn stated the following on 9/24/17 regarding AWS: "Jose does not “own” the AWS service. Jose has helped with the purchasing process to steam-line it for campus and make sure people who purchases services through AWS are using our UC-approved contract. The Service Catalog entry is about signing up for you own AWS account – IET does not offer a specific AWS service."
