You can now configure your Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics applications to send real-time analytics to AWS Lambda. Based on the processed data from Kinesis Data Analytics, your AWS Lambda functions can take actions such as update an Amazon DynamoDB or Amazon Aurora database, send real-time alerts using Amazon SNS or Amazon SQS, or invoke your own custom API. 

To get started, simply select an AWS Lambda function from the Kinesis Data Analytics application destination page in the AWS Management console. Kinesis Data Analytics provides Lambda blueprints for two common use cases, updating a DynamoDB table and sending an SNS notification. You can use these blueprints with limited changes or write your own custom functions. To learn more about this feature, see Using AWS Lambda as Output
