Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
So, what’s the solution?
A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.
Attend this session to learn:
• Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
• Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
• How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.
Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.
In this video, you’ll learn which use cases attract the most big data attention.
Data warehouse optimization was the leading use case followed closely by customer analysis. IoT uses cases are not on the radar for many organizations right now, but it’s likely that they will predominate big data analytics in the relatively near future. Watch the next video to learn what’s driving choices in big data infrastructure.

Today's enterprises need broader access to data for a wider array of use cases to derive more value from data and get to business insights faster. However, it is critical that companies also ensure the proper controls are in place to safeguard data privacy and comply with regulatory requirements.
What does this look like? What are best practices to create a modern, scalable data infrastructure that can support this business challenge?
Zaloni partnered with industry-leading insurance company AIG to implement a data lake to tackle this very problem successfully. During this webcast, AIG's VP of Global Data Platforms, Carlos Matos, and Zaloni CEO, Ben Sharma will share insights from their real-world experience and discuss:
- Best practices for architecture, technology, data management and governance to enable centralized data services
- How to address lineage, data quality and privacy and security, and data lifecycle management
- Strategies for developing an enterprise-wide data lake service for advanced analytics that can bridge the gaps between different lines of business, financial systems and drive shared data insights across the organization

As data analytics becomes more embedded within organizations, as an enterprise business practice, the methods and principles of agile processes must also be employed.
Agile includes DataOps, which refers to the tight coupling of data science model-building and model deployment. Agile can also refer to the rapid integration of new data sets into your big data environment for "zero-day" discovery, insights, and actionable intelligence.
The Data Lake is an advantageous approach to implementing an agile data environment, primarily because of its focus on "schema-on-read", thereby skipping the laborious, time-consuming, and fragile process of database modeling, refactoring, and re-indexing every time a new data set is ingested.
Another huge advantage of the data lake approach is the ability to annotate data sets and data granules with intelligent, searchable, reusable, flexible, user-generated, semantic, and contextual metatags. This tag layer makes your data "smart" -- and that makes your agile big data environment smart also!
The data contained in the data lake is too valuable to restrict its use to just data scientists. It would make the investment in a data lake more worthwhile if the target audience can be enlarged without hindering the original users. However, this is not the case today, most data lakes are single-purpose. Also, the physical nature of data lakes have potential disadvantages and limitations weakening the benefits and possibly even killing a data lake project entirely.
A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and greater use of the data lake investment without minimizing the potential value for data science or for making it a less flexible environment. Multi-purpose data lakes are data delivery environments architected to support a broad range of users, from traditional self-service BI users to sophisticated data scientists.
Attend this session to learn:
* The challenges of a physical data lake
* How to create an architecture that makes a physical data lake more flexible
* How to drive the adoption of the data lake by a larger audience

In a recent survey, less than 20% of CEO's were very satisfied with the value they have recognised from investments in data and analytics. This holds true for Big Data as well. Many organisations have experimented with these technologies and invested in creating data lakes for analytics.
However, these technologies need to find operational use cases in order to drive value to the business. The good news is that the Internet of Things (IoT) is now defining these use cases and new opportunities.
This presentation will use multiple case studies and industry research to provide valuable information to attendees engaged in planning, or researching Big Data and IoT initiatives.
When monitoring an increasing number of machines, the infrastructure and tools need to be rethinked. A new tool, ExDeMon, for detecting anomalies and raising actions, has been developed to perform well on this growing infrastructure. Considerations of the development and implementation will be shared.
Daniel has been working at CERN for more than 3 years as Big Data developer, he has been implementing different tools for monitoring the computing infrastructure in the organisation.
Business intelligence (BI) has been at the forefront of business decision-making for more than two decades. Then along came Big Data and it was thought that traditional BI technologies could never handle the volumes and performance issues associated with this unusual source of data.
So what do you do? Cast aside this critical form of analysis? Hardly a good answer. The better answer is to look for BI technologies that can keep up with Big Data, provide the same level of performance regardless of the volume or velocity of the data being analyzed, yet give the BI-savvy business users the familiar interface and multi-dimensionality they have come to know and love.
This webinar will present the findings from a recent survey of Big Data and the challenges and value many organizations have received from their implementations. In addition, the survey will supply a fascinating look into what Big Data technologies are most commonly used, the types of workloads supported, the most important capabilities for these platforms, the value and operational insights derived from the analytics performed in the environment, and the common use cases.
Attendees will also learn about a new BI technology built to handle Big Data queries with superior levels of scalability, performance and support for concurrent users. BI on Big Data platforms enables organizations to provide self-service and interactive on big data for all of their users across the enterprise.
Yes, now you CAN have BI on Big Data platforms!
