For the biggest cloud conference in the world, AWS re:Invent 2022, our experts traveled all the way to Las Vegas to capture everything you need to know about AWS & the future of cloud and data. Below you can find the logs we received from our vexperts. Between all the interesting workshops and keynote speaker sessions they managed to capture all you need to remember!
AWS re:Invent - Day 1 RECAP
It was a busy first day for the re:Invent 2022 conference! 💪
Several topics were highlighted:
✔ Amazon Redshift extends SQL capabilities to simplify and accelerate data warehouse migrations
✔ Introducing AWS Glue 4.0
✔ Introducing AWS Glue for Ray: scaling your data integration workloads using Python
✔ Create advanced insights using level-aware calculations in Amazon QuickSight
And as a perfect closing of this first day: Monday Night Live with Peter Desantis !
AWS re:Invent - Day 2 RECAP
The keynote everyone was waiting for from CEO Adam Selipsky contained several highlights we needed to share with you all:
✔”The issue of our generation” 👉 our goal of using 100% renewable energy by 2025 for AWS.
✔ Speech by Biljana Kaitovic (Group CIO of ENGIE): ENGIE explains how it is using AWS to accelerate the transition to a carbon neutral economy.
✔ Amazon DataZone: a new data management service to catalog, discover, share and govern data.
✔ EKS protection for GuardDuty: a new capability that adds threat detection at container runtime.
✔ Amazon Security Lake service: this way security teams will be able to easily collect, combine and analyze petabyte-scale security data automatically.
✔ AWS Supply Chain and AWS Clean Rooms apps.
AWS re:Invent - Day 3 RECAP
Charles Moureau, Thierry Turpin and Matthieu COHEN attended the Keynote of Dr Swami Sivasubramanian Sivasubramanian, Amazon Web Services (AWS) Vice President Data & ML.
Here are some highlights from his talk:
✔ “Data is the genesis for modern invention”: great breakthroughs can be achieved when our ideas are combined with prior information and the same is true for organisations, according to Dr Swami Sivasubramanian. However, unlike the human brain, business Data is not centralised. Automation is therefore essential to help us get the most out of our Data, which does not flow naturally like the brain.
✔ Zero-ETL future: As discussed by AWS CEO Adam Selipsky on Tuesday, AWS is moving towards a zero-ETL future by bringing services together to eliminate conflicts and make everything work more smoothly. This includes ETL-free integration of Aurora with Redshift and auto-copying for Amazon Redshift from S3, this will eliminate clutter and constraints in all areas.
✔ This includes AWS Glue Data Quality, which helps users build confidence in their Data so they can make better-informed business-critical decisions every day, reducing manual effort from days to hours.
