As business processes grow in complexity, modern application developers look to distribute work across multiple independent services. While this can help with scale and enable more rapid development, it comes with challenges around increased failure handling requirements and state management. With AWS Step Functions you can ease some of these concerns and even reduce the burden on application developers looking to solve these complexity challenges. In this session, we cover what’s new with Step Functions in 2020 and highlight the key patterns for building distributed business workflows to handle scale and workflow sophistication. We touch upon best practices for handling issues in your workflow and how you can instrument around your workflow for better observability.
