Provides enterprise-wide management strategy for decision-making driven by data Self-service analytics platforms give enterprise users the power to improve decision-making and provide on-demand insights. Self-service analytics helps data-driven organizations move beyond traditional reporting and business intelligence tools toward automated data preparation and enhanced analytics capabilities. A self-service solution providing pluggable support for machine learning at the point of data entry can help to make analytics processes even smarter, giving users the visual power to train and build models on the data.
By making a wider variety of data sources accessible more quickly to more people throughout an organization, self-service data ingestion helps improve analytics. Today, providing self-service access to data stored in data lakes means managing open-source software, data operations, infrastructure management, security, and supporting a diversity of ways for different data users across an enterprise to access data. Business leaders and data teams must now think through the many moving parts of providing users with self-service access to data lakes, and consider their data processes in holistic terms.

Creating Data Lakes using AWS Lake Formation allows you to build an open, portable data platform, which allows data consumers (users and applications) to discover and extract quality, trusted data from all enterprise data domains. AWS Glue DataBrew, combined with help from machine learning to help better understand and verify data, allows all types of users to create, consume, and publish data into the organizations data lake in a visual, zero-code, or low-code fashion, working within the existing centralised management model.
