Amazon DataZone: ‘There’s Really Nothing Else Like It’
AWS launched a new data management service that makes it faster and easier for customers to catalog, discover, share, and govern data stored across AWS, on-premises, and third-party sources with Amazon DataZone.
“DataZone enables you to set your data free throughout the organization safely by making it easy for admins and data stewards to manage govern access to data,” said Selipsky. “It makes it easy for data engineers, data scientists, product managers, analysts and other business users to discover, use and collaborate around that data to drive insights for your businesses.”
Data producers use Amazon DataZone’s web portal to set up their own business data catalog by defining their data taxonomy, configuring governance policies, and connecting to a range of AWS services such as Amazon S3 and Amazon Redshift, partner solutions like Salesforce and ServiceNow, and on-premises systems.
Selipsky said Amazon DataZone removes the heavy lifting of maintaining a catalog by using machine learning to collect and suggest metadata for each dataset and by training on a customer’s taxonomy and preferences to improve over time.
“Now you have an easy way to organize, discover, and collaborate on data across the company. There’s really nothing else like it, and I’m really excited to see how you’re going to use it,” Selipsky said.
