Many organizations have a serious interest in data lakes, at the moment, because of the business analytics and new data-driven practices that lakes promise. Yet, these organizations still aren’t quite ready to take a dive into a data lake. Whether they are unable to define standard structures, align and maintain business meanings, or create a governance strategy, these companies struggle to anticipate what truly lies beneath the surface of the data lake.

If this sounds familiar, you will enjoy this webinar featuring Philip Russom, Ph.D. of TDWI in our webinar about data lakes. He explores five key questions we typically hear about data lakes as well as common myths about data lakes. Discover how to move forward with confidence, avoid common pitfalls, and build a data lake that provides real business value across the enterprise.

What you will learn:

  • What a data lake is and what it isn’t
  • What technology platforms, tools, designs, and architectures are involved
  • Why you may need a lake, and what business value you can expect to get from it
  • How to get started in a safe and value-adding way
  • What the critical success factors are
