AWS Glue is a fully managed ETL service that makes it easy to move data between your data stores. AWS Glue simplifies and automates the difficult and time consuming tasks of data discovery, conversion, mapping, and job scheduling. AWS Glue guides you through the process of moving your data with an easy to use console that helps you understand your data sources, prepare the data for analytics, and load it reliably from data sources to destinations. In this talk, we provide an overview of AWS Glue and its differentiating features. We first describe the data catalog for discovering and organizing your data sets. AWS Glue also makes job authoring easy through automatic script generation and by allowing users to use their own developer tools. Finally, it offers fully-managed, serverless job orchestration and execution, so users need not worry about configuration and resource management.
