Hi James, thanks for the comment!

I'm replying a bit late, but what I wanted to mean was that DynamoDB and S3 can provide more information to be processed. In the case of Dynamo, we can receive the entire object with the invocation, as well as its state prior to the change.

With CloudWatch Rules, it's just a rule. Unless it's a self-contained task, Lambda will probably need to go get more data somewhere else to actually process what it's supposed to.
