Why Do I Need a Data Lake?

Watch on youTube

As it runs, your software factory churns out valuable results for users, like matches for their requests, products shipped to their homes, or informative reports that spur action. But there's a byproduct of the factory that can be hugely valuable: data on what your users asked for, what you did for them, and what insights you created along the way. You can turn this data into a highly processed, ready-to-consume product if you invest heavily in a data warehouse. But a simpler, less expensive first step is to store the key information, unprocessed, in a data lake—where it remains safe and ready for later use. (Yes, a lake turns into a warehouse. Don't blame me for the mixed metaphors!) I'll explain how this works, what benefits my clients get from it, and how you can get started.
