- Highest speed for retrieving queries
- Advanced analytics on all data stored within S3 can be delivered to an entire company.
- The ability to transform Amazon S3 data lakes into an actionable, easy-to-explore data platform.
Rahul Pathak, AWS executive, stated that Amazon Athena allows companies to query all data stored in Amazon S3 using standard SQL. This makes it simple for them to query their data without having to migrate it into a dedicated warehouse. There is no infrastructure to manage and there is no data loading required. “Looker enhances that capability by allowing companies define their data and providing a powerful interface for anyone, even those with no SQL experience to query and visualize their data. Looker announced that its new connection with Amazon Athena was available immediately and that Athena support would be added to the next edition of its data platform.
