Clear the Water
No one wants a swamp. Unfortunately, data lake projects often end up becoming swamps within just a few months of project kickoff. Having spent several months loading data into the lake, IT and big data teams often come to realize that their approach isn't working. Not only is the data load process taking too long, but limited transparency lingering data quality concerns and a lack of data governance and security measures effectively rule out the possibility of giving business users the access that they need.
Join Dr. Paul Barth, Podium Data CEO, as he explains how to fix these issues while creating a sustainable process moving forward to deliver a truly enterprise-scale and business-ready data lake.
