Integration of Amazon SQS and Tableau

This is an article on Amazon SQS and Tableau and how they can help you save time and money. SQS stands for Simple Queue Service and is a cloud-based message queuing service offered by Amazon. It is used to send messages between distributed components of applications and also to distribute work across multiple components. It uses a web service interface to allow both pull-based and push-based communication.

    What is Amazon SQS?

Amazon SQS is a web service that provides a simple, reliable, scalable hosted queue for storing messages as they travel between applications or microservices. SQS supports two communication patterns:"Push" — Messages are delivered to the consumer as soon as they are available. Delivered messages can be consumed from any device at any time, without requiring any polling. Messages can be accessed via the HTTP API or using AWS SDKs."Pull" — Messages are made available to the consumer at a specified point in time. The consumer can poll the queue periodically until a message is available. This pattern is useful when the application cannot process messages as soon as they become available (e.g., because it is offline or not ready.The service integrates with other AWS services like Lambda, Kinesis, S3, DynamoDB, and Simple Notification Service (SNS.

    What is Tableau?

Tableau is a program that helps business users analyze, visualize, and share data. It allows you to connect to various types of data sources and perform analysis on them.It allows you to see your data in an interesting way by creating different graphs, maps, etc. It can add layers of information to your data, which makes it easier to interpret than if you were looking at raw data.Tableau was founded in 2003 by Christian Chabot and Chris Stolte in Seattle, Washington. In 2005, Tableau Software Inc. became a public company and in January 2017, Tableau became a wholly owned subsidiary of the world's largest software company, "Dell Technologies".It has been ranked one of the best places to work in the USA by Glassdoor since 2013. They have received over 100 awards since their inception for designing elegant products that empower people to make sense of all their data.

    Integration of Amazon SQS and Tableau

Amazon SQS integrates directly with Tableau to provide a managed message queue for the delivery of large numbers of messages associated with large numbers of concurrent connections. SQS can be used with Tableau Public, for example, to track website visitor activity and deliver that data into a Tableau dashboard without building or managing an infrastructure to support that activity.A user can use AWS Config rules to monitor and send notifications based on configuration changes in AWS resources such as Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon RDS databases, and more. Rules can also be used with Amazon SQS FIFO queues to create custom dashboards or other integrations between AWS services and other applications in a user's environment. You can also send messages to any destination (for example, email addresses. from an Amazon SQS FIFO queue by using AWS Lambda@Edge functions or AWS Step Functions state machines. These message destinations could include SMS/text messaging gateways for alerting or other applications that require notification upon the completion of an asynchronous job such as loading data from an Amazon S3 bucket into Amazon Redshift or Amazon Elasticsearch Service . For more information on how you can use Amazon SQS FIFO queues for custom integrations with Lambda@Edge or Step Functions state machines, see Sending Notifications from an Amazon SQS FIFO Queue Using AWS Lambda@Edge Functions or Sending SMS/Text Messages from an Amazon SQS FIFO Queue Using AWS Lambda@Edge Functions in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide .

    Benefits of Integration of Amazon SQS and Tableau

Integrating SQS with Tableau gives you the benefit of having real-time data delivered into Tableau while knowing that when the data is delivered it will remain available for use for some period of time (the maximum length of time being determined by how long it takes messages to get from the queue through the processing pipeline. There are many reasons why this might be beneficial to you:You don't need to set up any infrastructure to collect the data; it comes directly into Tableau via the SQS queue.No need to employ expensive query optimization techniques on your database to ensure that Tableau has enough data available for fast response times—just send the data into SQS and let it go from there!The ability to deliver large amounts of data means that if you do not normally need Tableau to process huge amounts of data (because you have large volumes of data coming into another integration somewhere else), then sending the data into SQS will increase performance by ensuring that only what you specifically need gets processed by Tableau.You can set up multiple different graphs/dashboards using the same source dataset but showing different subsets of that dataset—letting you view multiple different perspectives on the same data all at once!As mentioned above, you can use AWS Config rules together with SQS queues to create custom dashboards or other integrations between AWS services and other applications in your environment. If you have been tasked with creating new dashboards or other integrations between AWS services and applications in your environment then this functionality might be just what you need—but even if you aren't responsible for creating new dashboards or integrations then it might still be useful because it removes yet another task from your already over-burdened workload!
