About the Webinar

Data lakes took root because they provided an instant sandbox for data scientists to explore raw data sourced from operational, analytical, and external systems. As data lakes have matured, organizations have begun to ask whether they can be used to support more traditional business users — executives, managers, and front-line workers who want to learn from curated data and dashboards, not wrangle with raw data and SQL.

In this webinar, several industry experts will discuss the evolution of data lakes and analytical tools, and explore whether business users are really taking advantage of these new data constructs. As evidence, the experts will discuss findings from an ongoing assessment conducted by Eckerson Group and Bloor Group that asks organizations to rate the efficacy of data lakes for business users in seven categories: consumption, self-service, analysis, insights, data, performance, and administration. Don’t miss this event when we unveil the verdict!
