Well-Architected Data and Analytics

What is the Data and Analytics lens?

The Amazon Web Services Well-Architected Framework includes strategies to help you compare your workload against Amazon Web Services’ best practices and get guidance so that you can focus on your business.  The lenses provide a focused perspective on a specific area of the architecture.   

TechConnect’s tailored Well-Architected review for Data & Analytics workloads helps customers identify improvements to existing data solutions, and also uncover opportunities to use other sources of data, such as spreadsheets, CRM systems, work-order systems, and operational databases. Integrating these new data sources can help customers unlock the value from data within their organisations, driving transformational insights through best-practice solutions.TechConnect has built a custom Lens on the Well-Architected Framework to assess Data & Analytics workloads.  

TechConnect IT Solutions are available to help you along the way as you build and manage your workloads.
