About the Webinar

Business leaders and technologists have become increasingly sophisticated and successful in collecting, monetizing, and using their data to create real business value through modern data applications. As early successes are followed by more ambitious goals for their big data programs, many organizations are feeling the gravitational pull of the cloud as a primary deployment platform for their new data pipelines.

As these planets align cloud powerhouses like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform are ramping up a rich collection of cloud services including Spark, Kafka, SQL/NoSQL databases, ML/AI, and many more.

Register for this DM Radio Deep Dive to hear industry Analyst Eric Kavanagh explain why the cloud is forcing an evolution of thinking and investment in big data programs. He’ll be joined by George Demarest of Unravel Data who will discuss the key role of AI, machine learning, expert automation, and market forces are playing in the planetary shift towards big data in the cloud.

Though it doesn’t have to be complicated, the Data Lake has a few key design points that are critical, and it does need to follow some principles for success. Avoid building the Data Swamp, but not the Data Lake! The tool ecosystem is building up around the Data Lake and soon many will have a robust Lake and Data Warehouse. We will discuss policy to keep them straight, send “horses to courses,” and keep up users’ confidence in the Data Platforms.

As for platform, although Hadoop received the early majority of Data Lakes, organizations are now weighing in that the Data Lake will be built in Cloud object storage. We’ll discuss these options as well.

Get this data point for your Data Lake journey.
