  • Sink or swim? Architecting the data lake to drive, survive and thrive. Recorded: Oct 31 2017 44 mins
    Matt Aslett, Research Director of Data Platforms & Analytics at 451 Research, and Kelly Schupp, VP of Marketing at Zaloni
    Today, big data is enabling the advanced analytics that companies have dreamed of for driving their business. And as forward-thinking companies take advantage of big data and advanced analytics to drive digital transformation initiatives, it is forcing the laggards to realize that they will have to do the same if they want to survive.

    The generally accepted architectural model for harnessing big data is a data lake. But data lakes, if leveraged simply as cheap storage within which to dump data, will inevitably disappoint. As the saying goes, garbage in, garbage out. Data lakes present unique challenges that must be dealt with if that big data set is going to be turned into actionable information.

    So what does it take to succeed with a data lake? Why do some organizations get real value out of big data, while others struggle?

    In this webinar, Matt Aslett, Research Director of Data Platform and Analytics at 451 Research and Kelly Schupp, VP of Data-driven Marketing at Zaloni, will discuss ideal data lake use cases such as Customer 360 and IoT. They will also discuss Zaloni’s data lake maturity model with which the data-eager company can chart its ideal course and roadmap.

  • Understanding Metadata: Why it's essential to your big data solution Recorded: Jun 21 2016 63 mins
    Ben Sharma and Vikram Skreekanti
    Metadata is essential for managing, migrating, accessing, and deploying a big data solution. Without it, enterprises have limited visibility into the data itself and cannot trust in its quality—negating the value of data in the first place. Creating end-to-end data visibility allows you to keep track of data, enable search and query across big data systems, safeguards your data, and reduces risk.

    In this O'Reilly webcast replay, Ben Sharma (co-founder and CEO of Zaloni) and Vikram Sreekanti (software engineer in the AMPLab at UC Berkeley) discuss the value of collecting and analyzing metadata, and its potential to impact your big data solution and your business.

    Learning how to access to your data's lineage allows you to know where data has come from, where it is, and how it is being used. This webinar takes a deep dive into a new open-source project under development at UC Berkeley — Ground. Ground is a data context system that enables users to uncover what data they have, where the data is flowing to and from, who is using the data, and when and how it changes. We explore how data context stretches the bounds of what we have traditionally considered metadata.

    Topics covered include:

    - The role of metadata in data analysis

    - Key considerations for managing metadata

    - How to establish data lineage and provenance, in order to create a repeatable process

    - How Ground is making an impact on a wide range of data tasks, including data inventory, usage tracking, model-specific interpretation, reproducibility, interoperability, and collective governance

    - Initial work on Ground, and how this data context system is making an impact on a wide range of data tasks, including: data inventory, usage tracking, model-specific interpretation, reproducibility, interoperability, and collective governance
