How it works
AWS Step Functions is a visual workflow service that helps developers use AWS services to build distributed applications, automate processes, orchestrate microservices, and create data and machine learning (ML) pipelines.
Automate extract, transform, and load (ETL) processes
Ensure that multiple long-running ETL jobs run in order and complete successfully, without the need for manual orchestration.
Orchestrate large-scale parallel workloads
Iterate over and process large data-sets such as security logs, transaction data, or image and video files.
Combine multiple AWS Lambda functions into responsive serverless applications and microservices.
Automate security and IT functions
Create automated workflows, including manual approval steps, for security incident response.
