Busting Data Lake Myths and Dragons

Presented by

Gary Richardson, MD, Emerging Technology, 6point6

About this talk

Leveraging data lakes is no longer a technical challenge, AWS, Azure and GCP make it easy to provision and harness the technical infrastructure needed in order to leverage your data. The issues that prevent data exploitation are all of the non technical drivers that we have been talking about for years. In this talk we will run through the following provocations: 1. We don't need governance, we have a data lake. 2. We have all our data in one place so we know what data we have. 3. We have a data lake so we now have a data strategy. 4. We have new shiny tools we don't need to think about data engineers. 5. We do agile so we will get results. Register for our webinar and get the inside track on how to leverage cloud data lakes.
