AWS Step Functions supports SageMaker Processing

Amazon SageMaker is a fully managed service which lets you build, train and deploy machine learning models without having in-depth knowledge of machine learning. It does all the heavy lifting for you so that can focus on bringing in the data and train your model as per your business requirement.

Your machine learning workflow can now include SageMaker Processing which allows you to set up data processing and compute steps into your machine learning workflows without leaving the SageMaker service.
