AWS re:Invent 2017: FINRA’s Managed Data Lake: Next-Gen Analytics in the Cloud (ENT328) – #AWS

Financial Impact Regulatory Authority (FINRA)’s Technology Group has changed its customers’ relationship with data by creating a managed data lake that enables discovery on petabytes of capital markets’ data, while saving time and money over traditional analytics solutions. FINRA’s managed data lake unlocks the value in its data to accelerate analytics and machine learning at scale. The data lake includes a centralized data catalog and separates storage from compute, allowing users to query from petabytes of data in seconds. Learn how FINRA uses Spot Instances and services such as Amazon S3, Amazon EMR, Amazon Redshift, and AWS Lambda to provide the right tool for the right job at each step in the data processing pipeline. All of this is done while meeting FINRA’s security and compliance responsibilities as a financial regulator.
