During their re:Invent conference taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, Amazon used the spotlight for AWS to officially announce Amazon DataZone which is a new data management service that can help enterprises catalog, discover, share and govern their data.
“To unlock the full power the full value of data, we need to make it easy for the right people and applications to find, access and share the right data when they need it — and to keep data safe and secure.” AWS CEO Adam Selipsky said, according to TechCrunch.
DataZone users will get access to a portal where they can set up their data catalog and define the taxonomy, and once it is connected to a data source it will utilize machine learning to both populate and to catalog with its metadata.
Additionally, users will be able to add additional labels and descriptions when they are needed.
“Data zone enables you to set data free throughout the organization safely by making it easy for admins and data stewards to manage and govern access to data,” Selipsky continued. “And 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.”
