AWS IoT SiteWise is a managed service to collect, store, organize and monitor data from industrial equipment at scale. Today, we are announcing support for exporting your AWS IoT SiteWise data to Amazon S3. With this feature, you can configure AWS IoT SiteWise to export your equipment data to your industrial data lake in Amazon S3. Once your data is exported, you can leverage a host of other AWS services such as AWS IoT Analytics, Amazon Athena, Amazon SageMaker, and Amazon QuickSight, to perform analytics and build machine learning (ML) models. You can also join and augment your equipment data from AWS IoT SiteWise with other data sources in your data lake (such as from Enterprise Resource Planning systems) to get even richer insights that enable you to optimize your maintenance and operations activities.

You can opt-in to export your data to S3 from the AWS IoT SiteWise console. Once you opt-in to export your data to S3, all you need to do is to provide the URL to an S3 bucket in your AWS account. Once configured, AWS IoT SiteWise will export data from your measurements, metrics, and transforms, to your S3 bucket periodically. In addition, AWS IoT SiteWise will automatically synchronize any changes to your asset and asset model definitions with the data exported to S3 so that your data in S3 reflects the most updated asset structure and hierarchy. 

With this launch, we also enabled a native integration between AWS IoT SiteWise and AWS IoT Analytics so that you can perform SQL queries on your AWS IoT SiteWise data. To leverage this functionality, from your AWS IoT SiteWise console, all you need to do is to opt-in to create an AWS IoT Analytics data store based on your AWS IoT SiteWise data exported to S3. You can then use AWS IoT Analytics to run SQL queries to discover insights about your assets such as viewing properties and relationships between various AWS IoT SiteWise assets, running statistical queries on AWS IoT SiteWise data, and performing advanced analytics that join AWS IoT SiteWise data with other AWS IoT Analytics data stores that use S3.

For more information on how to configure data export to S3, see the AWS IoT SiteWise reference page for exporting data to S3. To learn more about AWS IoT SiteWise, please visit the AWS IoT SiteWise website or the developer guide.
