So what is an AWS data lake? Data Lake on AWS automatically configures the core AWS services necessary to easily tag, search, share, transform, analyze, and govern specific subsets of data across a company or with other external users. 

You must be wondering what Women in Big Data (WiBD) is? WiBD is a non-profit organization established in 2015 in the USA. Later it got introduced in Nepal in 2020. It creates the vision to promote women’s empowerment in the tech industry, particularly in the realm of Big Data. On 4th April 2020, two motivated and dedicated co-directors, Anima Acharya and Sapana Tandukar formed the WiBD Nepal Chapter. 

Finally, a data lake built on AWS allows you to evolve your business around your data assets and use them to rapidly and agilely produce greater business value and a competitive differentiator.
