Amazon EMR Summit

June 25 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Amazon EMR Summit – Atlanta: Why should you attend?

This is an invitation only series of AWS regional summits. As a reflection of the landscape, Data Lake & Analytics continues to surge in interest and adoption as organizations are achieving better business outcomes and technical efficiencies. As confirmed in AWS CEO Andy Jassy’s Re:Invent keynote, AWS boasts over 10,000 data lake deployments. Centric to these design patterns is the ability to manage Big Data workloads. More specifically, Hadoop and Spark solve ingestion, transformation, curation, machine learning and advanced reporting.

Per Analyst reports from Gartner and Forrester, Amazon EMR is the undisputed leader in this space!

With the excitement in the space, AWS is hosting a dive deep event on “Migrating on-premises Apache Hadoop and Spark to Amazon EMR.” During this event, you will interact with AWS product managers, solutions architects, and peer builders. Join for the presentations, demonstrations, and opportunities for Q&A in small groups. Through our customer obsessed culture, we are genuinely interested in your feedback of what you would like to see from Amazon EMR!


Attendees should be familiar with Apache Hadoop and Spark as well as core AWS services such as S3, EC2, VPC, and IAM.

What should you bring?

Bring your laptops for interactive polling within sessions to guide discussions and for demos.
