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.
