Presenting the All Purpose Data Lake at Data Architecture Summit.
What’s happened with data organization?
The rise of “big data” gave rise to flat data lake architectures. Flat data lake architectures are generally preferred for machine learning applications. But, facing ever growing data volumes, many organizations are still struggling with answering basic questions for simply running the business:
- how many customers did I add/lose last week?
- did we meet our revenue forecasts last quarter?
These fundamental questions are usually better suited for traditional Business Intelligence tools. But can traditional BI tools and AI/machine learning tools use the same data structures efficiently?
Yes, with thoughtful data architecture, it’s possible.
Old Meets New with the All Purpose Data Lake.
In this advanced session, Caserta Principle Consultant, Bill Walrond will explore data architectures that make sense for both data scientists and business intelligence analysts. There’s no need to replicate data to serve two functions, one model can serve many.
You can catch Bill’s session on Thursday, October 11th from 2:00pm-3:00pm.
