Amazon announced the launch of AppFlow, a service that enables customers to manage the data flow between AWS and SaaS apps without writing custom integration code.

Besides, AppFlow works with AWS PrivateLink to route data flows through the AWS network to provide stronger data privacy and security.

The company revealed it charges no upfront fees for Amazon AppFlow use. Its customers only pay for the number of flows they run and the volume of data processed.

According to the statement, customers can configure several types of triggers for their data flows. For instance, one-time on-demand transfers, routine data syncs scheduled at predetermined times, or event-driven transfers when launching a campaign.

As to other advantages, customers can backup contacts and support cases from Salesforce to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).

They can also pull logs and metric data from monitoring tools for analytics in Amazon Redshift, or send customer engagement data from Slack, Marketo, Zendesk, Amplitude, or Singular to Amazon S3 for sentiment analysis.

Our customers tell us that they love having the ability to store, process, and analyze their data in AWS. They also use a variety of third-party SaaS applications, and they tell us that it can be difficult to manage the flow of data between AWS and these applications. Amazon AppFlow provides an intuitive and easy way for customers to combine data from AWS and SaaS applications without moving it across the public Internet. With Amazon AppFlow, our customers bring together and manage petabytes, even exabytes, of data spread across all of their applications – all without having to develop custom connectors or manage underlying API and network connectivity
