Migrating from Amazon Mobile Analytics to Amazon Pinpoint

After April 30, 2018, features that are supported by Amazon Mobile Analytics will be supported and available exclusively on Amazon Pinpoint.

As with Mobile Analytics, you can use Amazon Pinpoint to measure app usage and revenue. Amazon Pinpoint adds more analytics capabilities by allowing you to segment users based on your data. You can also run targeted messaging campaigns through push notifications, email, and SMS to increase user engagement. For more information, see Amazon Pinpoint.

With Amazon Pinpoint, you can also export your data in real time through Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, which provides additional features to transform, encrypt, and deliver raw analytics data. With Kinesis Data Firehose delivery streams, you can choose various destinations for your data like Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Redshift, or Amazon Elasticsearch Service.

If you're new to Mobile Analytics, use Amazon Pinpoint instead. If you're currently using Mobile Analytics, migrate from Mobile Analytics to Amazon Pinpoint by April 30, 2018. Your existing Mobile Analytics apps are supported by Amazon Pinpoint, but certain Mobile Analytics workflows require you to switch to the corresponding Amazon Pinpoint features:
