Listen to our interview at Big Data LDN with Richard Neale, EMEA Director at Birst.
Companies have embraced the concept of the data lake or data hub to serve their data storage and data-driven application needs. However, gaps remain in the maturity and capability of the Hadoop stack, leaving organisations struggling with how to reap the benefits of these data lakes and how to create analytic applications that deliver value to end users.
For data lakes to succeed, organisations need to learn and understand the differences between these big data scenarios:
1. Data discovery and exploratory analysis
2. Analytic applications and operationalisation of analytics across the enterprise
Richard will examine these two scenarios, where and when each one is appropriate, and how to mature from one to the other..
