Amazon Web Services (AWS) has launched EventBridge. This service should enable companies to connect their technology and business systems more easily to its cloud platform.

There are several companies that still use external cloud applications to support their operations. However, it can be useful to have the data generated in those applications also available in AWS. With EventBridge, this should be made easier, writes Silicon Angle.

EventBridge offers data links that can be used directly for software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions. The service launches with support for nine popular SaaS applications, such as Segment customer analytics platform, Zenefits human resources suite and PagerDuty.

EventBridge enables companies to plug the applications into the AWS services of their choice. For example, a marketing team can import customer profiles from Segment to the SageMaker machine learning service from AWS for analysis.


EventBridge also offers opportunities to automate certain tasks. The service can transfer data from applications to Lambda. Lambda is a serverless computing engine that performs actions in response to specific events.

For example, Lambda is able to restart a database when EventBridge receives a notification about downtime. In addition, it can clean up marketing data imported for analysis.

By making workflows easy to implement, EventBridge can encourage more enterprise customers to perform their operations on AWS by default. The service should be made even more attractive through an AWS dedicated partner program, which encourages more SaaS providers to add integrations for their products.


In addition, AWS has announced to update CloudWatch. CloudWatch is an infrastructure monitoring console. The solution will have a set of new dashboards showing the performance and health data of software containers.

This should simplify error diagnostics and give companies a better idea of how much hardware resources they use for their containers.
