The Team:
AWS Glue DataBrew, is a new visual data preparation tool that enables customers to clean and normalize data without writing code. Data analysts and data scientists have wanted an easier way to clean and transform this data, and that's what DataBrew delivers, with a service that allows data exploration and experimentation directly from AWS data lakes, data warehouses, and databases without writing code. AWS Glue DataBrew offers customers over 250 pre-built transformations to automate data preparation tasks (e.g. filtering anomalies, standardizing formats, and correcting invalid values) that would otherwise require days or weeks writing hand-coded transformations. Once the data is prepared, customers can immediately start using it with AWS and third-party analytics and machine learning services to query the data and train machine learning models.
