Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler & AWS Lake Formation Transform Machine Learning: Streamlining Data Preparation and Enhancing Access Control

As Seen On

Machine learning is revolutionizing various industries, but data preparation typically has been a time-consuming process, often requiring weeks of effort. Enter Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler, a service designed to reduce data preparation time for machine learning from weeks to mere minutes. The secret of SageMaker Data Wrangler’s success lies in its ability to streamline feature engineering and data preparation, virtually eliminating the most tedious aspect of machine learning.

Managing data lakes can be a Herculean task. Fortunately, AWS Lake Formation is set to change that. Implementing fine-grained access control, Lake Formation offers unprecedented control over data management. Moreover, Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler has been engineered to support this access control with Lake Formation, and Amazon Athena connections, essentially managing the data lake efficiently and securely.

Amazon has made breaking news with the launch of SageMaker Data Wrangler’s support for Lake Formation with Amazon EMR. Now, data professionals can enjoy fine-grained data access with the speed of Amazon EMR. While Amazon EMR is renowned for its rapid data preparation, it has often been criticized for its steep learning curve. This new integration promises to offer the best of both worlds.

Way ahead of its competitors, Lake Formation offers central data governance capabilities. Simultaneously, Amazon EMR functions as a big data query engine for the SageMaker Data Wrangler. This combination results in a dynamic and potent tool for data management and access.

One of Lake Formation’s most remarkable capabilities lies in its potential to simplify securing and managing distributed data lakes across multiple accounts. Its comprehensive approach and user-friendly interface make it the leading choice for businesses of all sizes and across multiple sectors.

The efficacy of SageMaker Data Wrangler and Lake Formation can be best demonstrated through practical use cases. One instance involves deploying a TPC data model, typically employed to represent transactional data for various products. Both data management services come into play, bringing together raw data and organizing it for easy access and utilization.

Let’s take the examples of David and Tina. David is a data scientist working on the marketing team, needing non-sensitive customer data. On the other hand, Tina is handling sales and product data. These unique scenarios would guest distinct challenges that both SageMaker Data Wrangler and Lake Formation can navigate effectively, easing data access while maintaining security protocols.

The architecture is an essential part of securing and managing data. Lake Formation manages the data lake, with Amazon EMR querying data. IAM roles manage data access, and SageMaker Data Wrangler provides a user-friendly visual interface for data scientists. A diagram provided visually demonstrates the architecture’s robust structure, proving its efficiency and accessibility.

By leveraging Amazon SageMaker Data Wrangler, AWS Lake Formation and Amazon EMR, businesses can accelerate their machine learning projects, streamline their data preparation process, secure their data with fine-grained access control, and ultimately lead their respective industries.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
