Why developers like Amazon Athena?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Amazon Athena in their tech stack.
I use Amazon Athena because similar to Google BigQuery , you can store and query data easily. Especially since you can define data schema in the Glue data catalog, there's a central way to define data models.
However, I would not recommend for batch jobs. I typically use this to check intermediary datasets in data engineering workloads. It's good for getting a look and feel of the data along its ETL journey.
