Leveraging the elasticity and flexibility of the cloud, there is an opportunity for collaborators to innovate with how data is prepared and accessed by business and IT users,” said Ken Chestnut, Global Segment Lead, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Paxata, working with Slalom, is delivering an innovative data preparation experience with AWS services, like Amazon S3 and Amazon Redshift.”
