How To Succeed with a Cloud Data Lake

Data is moving from on-premise to the cloud at a pace that is faster than ever before. However, the cloud presents its own challenges.

To succeed with data in the cloud, there are numerous decisions that a data expert is faced with - to choose a data warehouse or a data lake or both? What is the right way to architect a cloud data lake and how does it differ from on-premise? And how to reduce the time to value by making this data available for analytics and machine learning?

Creating a sustainable competitive advantage using data goes beyond business intelligence to applications ranging from interactive, streaming and clickstream analytics, machine learning, deep learning and more. Data lakes provide an optimal architecture for such new applications of data. However, achieving success with data lakes depends on many factors. In this presentation, we will describe how cloud data lakes provide a future-focused, enterprise-grade solution to achieve sustainable competitive advantage using data.

We will specifically discuss:

  • Common use cases for data lakes
  • Differences between data lakes and data warehouses and perils of using them interchangeably
  • Data lake architecture best practices covering data ingestion, data layout, governance, data processing, security and financial governance
