AppFlow - Extract & Load
What's interesting about this simple tool for exporting data from SaaS applications into AWS?
You ever use Excel to connect to a data source to export data and then import that data into another database? Well, you now understand AppFlow. AppFlow is a no-code service that allows extraction from a SaaS data source into an AWS data source such as S3, Aurora, or RDS. You can then use that to create event-driven compute, such as a Lamda for data Transform, or to kick off data analysis from the combined services.
But - Will it Database?
From the iPhone of Corey Quinn
AppFlow filters and transforms data passing through it; it can be therefore used as a self-filling database.
