This workshop goes beyond the demo case. It also addresses the question "what it takes to run this in production", the promise of fully managed services/software. Keeping in mind AWS QuickSight differentiates in its capabilities to unlock big data sources, the workshop will also illustrate how to transfer huge amounts of data towards AWS Redshift (Data warehouse).

The workshop will show typical design patterns:
1. Near real-time: trigger based file replications
2. Real-time: how to achieve a heterogeneous database real-time data synchronization. A real-time database synchronization from Microsoft SQL server (OLTP) towards AWS Redshift (OLAP).

In less than 2 hours, we inform you on new product trends and help you imagine how your users could benefit from them. You build, together with our experts, a real- life prototype with AWS QuickSight. Do not forget to bring your laptop!

The session will include a short update on the newest technologies, use cases and best practices that can easily be translated to your business environment and a hands-on session.
