On November 27, the Amazon Web Services (AWS) re:Invent conference returns to Las Vegas, Nevada for our twelfth year of learning with cloud enthusiasts from around the world. To make the most of your experience, we’ve put together this guide to some of the public sector sessions and activities at re:Invent.
The first blog post in this series outlined considerations for developing API pipelines on AWS to extract data from third-party SaaS tools. With consolidated data, public sector organizations can offer new experiences for donors and members, enrich research datasets, and improve operational efficiency for their staff. This follow-up blog post presents options for ingesting SaaS data with API requests from AWS services, methods for handling payload data from API calls, and guidance for orchestration and scaling an API data pipeline on AWS.

Organizations deal with ever-growing data volumes. This means that growth-minded businesses must put data at the heart of every application, process, and decision. But how you use your organization’s data is the key to accelerating innovation and accomplishing your organizational goals.
Public sector organizations often utilize third-party Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to manage various business functions, such as marketing and communications, payment processing, workflow automation, donor management, and more. This common SaaS landscape can lead to data silos where data becomes isolated in disparate systems and difficult to centralize for business insights. If existing SaaS connectors are not available, public sector organizations can use AWS to build an API-driven data pipeline to consolidate data from SaaS platforms offering open APIs. In this post, learn how to build an API data pipeline on AWS.
Since wildfires can double in size and intensity every three to five minutes, early detection and reduced response times are essential. Cloud technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), can help with this. Learn a high-level architecture to create a solution with AWS that uses AI to identify and classify wildfire smoke imagery and then rapidly alert and inform first responders about the location and condition of a fire incident.
