Getting Started with Data Analytics on AWS
Learn how to go from raw data to meaningful insights using AWS with this course. Throughout the course, you’ll learn about the fundamentals of Data Analytics from AWS experts.
With the explosion of data collection enabled by the internet, mobile applications and transformation into the cloud, effective data analytics is turning into a critical tool in practically every domain – from academia to enterprise.
Start off with an overview of different types of data analysis techniques (descriptive, diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive) before diving deeper into descriptive analysis. Then, apply your knowledge with a guided project that makes use of a simple, but powerful dataset available by default in every AWS account: the logs from AWS CloudTrail. The CloudTrail service enables governance, compliance, operational auditing, and risk auditing of your AWS account. Through the project you’ll also get an introduction to Amazon Athena and Amazon QuickSight. Examples of common data analysis scenarios and benefits of doing analytics in the cloud will be discussed. And, you’ll learn how to build a basic security dashboard as a simple but practical method of applying your newfound data analytics knowledge.
This course is not a deep dive into any of the services (Amazon S3, Amazon Athena, AWS CloudTrail, AWS Quicksight), but brings them together to explain how to do analytics on AWS, with a simple example.
