Amazon Web Services recently announced the general availability of AWS Glue DataBrew, a new visual data preparation tool that enables users to prepare data without writing code. While AWS Glue provides both code-based and visual interfaces, data analysts and scientists now gain an easier way to clean and transform data. AWS Glue DataBrew is a service that allows data exploration and experimentation directly from AWS data lakes, data warehouses, and databases. It also touts more than 250 pre-built transformations for data prep automation.
AWS Glue DataBrew is a visual data preparation tool for AWS Glue that allows data analysts and data scientists to clean and transform data with an interactive, point-and-click visual interface, without writing any code. The solution lets users access and visually explore any data across their organization directly from their Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) data lake, Amazon Redshift data warehouse, and Amazon Aurora and Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) databases. DataBrew recommends data cleaning and normalization steps as well.
For complex tasks like converting words to a common base or root word, AWS Glue DataBrew provides transformations that use advanced machine learning techniques like Natural Language Processing and apply them automatically to future incoming data. The tool publishes prepared data to Amazon S3, which makes it simple for customers to immediately use it in analytics and machine learning. DataBrew is serverless and fully managed so users never need to configure, provision, or manage any compute resources.
In a media statement, AWS VP of Database and Analytics Raju Gulabani said: “Customers love the scalability and flexibility of code-based data preparation services like AWS Glue, but they could also benefit from allowing business users, data analysts, and data scientists to visually explore and experiment with data independently, without writing code. AWS Glue DataBrew features an easy-to-use visual interface that helps data analysts and data scientists of all technical levels understand, combine, clean, and transform data.”
