We live in a data-driven age, where data analytics has become key to the success of modern enterprises because it enables smarter decision making and faster detection of patterns and trends. Building the data pipeline and analytics infrastructure however proved to be a challenging feat for most companies. It requires ingesting, storing, processing, and consuming very large amounts of data which traditionally requires complex and large scale distributed systems.

Failing to implement a successful data analytics solution can turn out to be very costly for organizations both financially and in terms of time to insights. This is why serverless analytics today is such a compelling option. By using AWS serverless services as building blocks, you can now easily and rapidly build data lakes and data pipelines that process and analyze petabytes of data without needing to manage any infrastructure components.
