Enterprise customers

Your data consumers don’t need to wait for data engineering to cleanse, validate, parse, and transform files into tables. As soon as a subscription is live, Lake Formation admins can share access with the appropriate teams, who can query using any Lake Formation-supported query engine like Amazon Athena. Data made available through Lake Formation data permission datasets automatically appears in your AWS Glue Data Catalog alongside your first-party tables. This helps you create a comprehensive, discoverable Data Catalog across your first- and third-party data.

This feature can help differentiate your data, as data in Lake Formation is delivered in a ready-to-use format that removes the undifferentiated heavy lifting from your customers.
