AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) now enables you to migrate and replicate data from any AWS DMS supported sources to Amazon Elasticsearch Service and Amazon Kinesis Data Streams.  Replicating data from your data sources directly into Amazon Elasticsearch Service and Amazon Kinesis Data Streams reduces latency so you can search and analyze your data in near real time.

Moving your data to Amazon Elasticsearch Service provides you with near real-time search capabilities, at scale. It enables you to perform search on your data faster as compared to searching for data in a relational database source. For example, an e-commerce company can stream customer order data to Amazon Elasticsearch Service using AWS DMS and combine data fields in transit using mappings to get real-time customer insights.

Moving your data to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams enables you to start analyzing your data immediately without any delay. It enables you to perform real time analytics on your data to get insights faster than what you would normally see with relational database sources. For example, you can use AWS DMS to stream point-of-sale data from an on-premises Microsoft SQL Server database to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams to analyze purchasing trends in real time.
