In recent years, there has been an explosive growth in the number of connected devices and real-time data sources. Because of this, data is being produced continuously and its production rate is accelerating. Businesses can no longer wait for hours or days to use this data. To gain the most valuable insights, they must use this data immediately so they can react quickly to new information. In this workshop, you learn how to take advantage of streaming data sources to analyze and react in near real-time. You are presented with several requirements for a real-world streaming data scenario and you're tasked with creating a solution that successfully satisfies the requirements using services such as Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda and Amazon SNS.
