You can now provision and manage resources for Amazon Kinesis Analytics applications using AWS CloudFormation. With AWS CloudFormation, you can easily provision and update a set of related AWS resources in an orderly and predictable fashion.

Kinesis Analytics is the easiest way to process streaming data in real time with standard SQL without having to learn new programming languages or processing frameworks. Kinesis Analytics enables you to query streaming data or build entire streaming applications using SQL, so that you can gain actionable insights and respond to your business and customer needs promptly. Kinesis Analytics is available in US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) regions.

Customers can use AWS CloudFormation to create templates that easily create or update Kinesis Analytics applications. Typically, a template is used as a way to manage code across different environments or to quickly prototype a new streaming data solution.
