Business intelligence for AWS S3 data
Within the AWS ecosystem, data stored in S3 can be queried with a business intelligence tool. The lego bricks are:
- AWS S3 for data storage
- AWS Athena as a SQL-querying layer on top of S3 (built on Presto). When creating a table in Athena, Athena uses AWS Glue Data Catalog for storing the metadata.
- AWS QuickSight as a business-intelligence tool connected to Athena.
