New on the APN Blog: Building a Data Lake Foundation for Salesforce in AWS
Over on the AWS Partner Network Blog, a recent blog post caught my eye and I thought it was worth sharing with our growing storage audience. The post, Building a Data Lake Foundation for Salesforce in AWS, is written by Simon Ejsing, Director of Analytics at FinancialForce. Simon’s post outlines their approach to unlocking the potential of data and how they integrate between Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Salesforce, an AWS Partner Network (APN) Advanced Technology Partner with the AWS DevOps Competency.
The blog draws inspiration from the article Build a Data Lake Foundation with AWS Glue and Amazon S3, but differs on some core concepts. It centers around Salesforce as the main data source and builds a complete time-series data lake. I think you will enjoy learning about their approach to building a foundation for a data lake on Amazon S3 and how they are using Amazon Redshift Spectrum by creating external tables over the data lake.
