AWS Data Lab is a four-day intensive engagement between a team of customer builders and AWS technical resources to create tangible deliverables that accelerate data and analytics modernization initiatives.

During the lab, Data Lab Solutions Architects and Database and Analytics service experts support the customer by offering prescriptive architectural guidance, sharing best practices, and removing technical roadblocks. At the end of the lab, the customer team leaves with a well-architected prototype, a path to production, greater knowledge of AWS Database and Analytics services, and strengthened relationships with AWS technical service experts.


Example Use Cases

Design and test a process to non-disruptively migrate application back-ends from Oracle and SQL Server to Aurora, at scale.

Predictive Analytics

Design a serverless Next Generation Medical Network for patient validation and rapid, scalable workflows connecting payers and providers.

Graph and microservices development
