Building a Data Lake in the Cloud
Hey fellow data warriors! Here is a new joint blog post I just did with fellow data warrior Dale Anderson from Talend! Check it out. I hope you find the concept compelling!
So you want to build a Data Lake? Ok, sure let’s talk about that. Perhaps you think a Data Lake will eliminate the need for a Data Warehouse and all your business users will merely lure business analytics from it easily. Maybe you think putting everything into Big Data technologies like Hadoop will resolve all your data challenges and deliver fast data processing with Spark delivering cool Machine Learning insights that magically give you a competitive edge. And really, with NoSQL, nobody needs a data model anymore, right?
Avoid the data swamp! Use modern cloud based DWaaS (Snowflake) and the leading-edge Data Integration tool (Talend) to build a Governed Data Lake.
