Analyzing streaming data in real-time with Amazon Kinesis (ABD301)
Amazon Kinesis makes it easy to collect process and analyze real-time streaming data so you can get timely insights and react quickly to new information. In this session we present an end-to-end streaming data solution using Kinesis Streams for data ingestion Kinesis Analytics for real-time processing and Kinesis Firehose for persistence. We review in detail how to write SQL queries using streaming data and discuss best practices to optimize and monitor your Kinesis Analytics applications. Lastly we discuss how to estimate the cost of the entire system.
Workshop: Building your first big data application on AWS (ABD317)
Want to ramp up your knowledge of AWS big data web services and launch your first big data application on the cloud? We walk you through simplifying big data processing as a data bus comprising ingest, store, process, and visualize. You build a big data application using AWS managed services, including Amazon Athena, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon S3. Along the way, we review architecture design patterns for big data applications and give you access to a take-home lab so that you can rebuild and customize the application yourself. You should bring your own laptop and have some familiarity with AWS services to get the most from this session.
Workshop: Don’t wait until tomorrow, how to use streaming data to gain real-time insights into your business (ABD321)
In recent years, there has been an explosive growth in the number of connected devices and real-time data sources.
