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.

Getting your company ready for GDPR isn’t about putting a few new processes in place — it’s about rethinking your entire approach to personal data, including how to get value from it. For decades, companies have collected and stored all kinds of personal information “just in case” they ever needed it.
GDPR requires a different approach. You need to be proactive in thinking about how to get value from your data, and you need to understand exactly what your company is doing with personal data and why.
Join Jill Reber and Kevin Moos of Primitive Logic to learn:
- How to work with third parties who process personal data on your behalf
- How preparing for GDPR helps you understand your data on a whole new level (and why that’s a good thing)

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

-How to embrace the era of digital transformation and IoT without breaking the bank
-Best practices for storing, analyzing and utilizing big data
Data is collected in IoT solutions for a purpose - it is transformed into information which is subsequently used to produce actionable insights.
The three primary types of IoT data, in order of volume, are:
- Time based (time series, time interval), e.g. power, voltage, current, temperature and humidity
- Geospatial, e.g. person/device location
- Asset specific data
These types of data have special characteristics that need to be catered to. Join this webinar with Cloud Technology Partners Joey Jablonski, VP of Big Data & Analytics and Ken Carroll, VP of IoT, as they discuss some important aspects of how such data can be ingested, modeled, stored and used in IoT solutions.
Organizations looking to deploy database applications, like Cassandra, Postgres and Couchbase, need persistent storage so if the instance fails data survives. Many storage vendors are jumping on the “containers” bandwagon, but the level of support and understanding of the true need varies.

CFOs rejoice! CEOs take to the streets in celebration! Ok, maybe it’s not quite that exciting, but did you know that you can get the best of both worlds in storage? One of the biggest challenges in storage has been paying for it. Thanks to trying to plan for exactly how much storage you need right now versus how much you need in the future, people often just overbuy with the expensive hopes that they’ll grow into it.
You actually have a whole lot of financing options at your disposal to pay for storage, from buying to leasing to simply paying for what you use, just like the cloud. Why pay for storage that you’re never going to actually use?
And, what happens when your storage gets too old? You buy new. What if you didn’t have to? What if you could pay a bit more in maintenance on your current system in exchange for an upgrade when the time comes?
Join Rob Commins, Sr. Director of Product Marketing for Tegile Systems, as he takes a deep dive into:
- Best practices for storing your data in the cloud
- How to keep cloud storage costs to a minimum
