AWS Webinar: Analytics 9/24

Join us on Thursday, September 24 at 10:00 AM central via AWS Chime to learn more about AWS Analytics. This series of webinars is being presented by AWS for the University of Illinois, University of Michigan, and Notre Dame audiences.

AWS provides the easiest path to build data lakes and associated analytics. Setting up and managing data lakes involves a lot of manual and time-consuming tasks such as loading, transforming, securing, and auditing access to data. AWS Lake Formation automates many of those manual steps and reduces the time required to build a successful data lake from months to days. In this session we will introduce you to the AWS analytics portfolio and discuss how customers are leveraging our services to drive insights and innovation within their organizations.
