icon-webinarTHE GREAT DATA LAKES: HOW TO APPROACH BIG DATA IMPLEMENTATION

Date: Tuesday, April 7, 2015
Time: 1:00PM PDT

The more things change in Big Data, the more they stay the same. Indeed, there are many similarities between a Hadoop-based Data Lake and today’s modern Data Warehouse. Regardless of platform, information workers must still be able to turn their assets into action quickly, without taking a hit on governance or downstream performance. Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor as he explains the challenges facing organizations who endeavor on Big Data projects. He’ll be briefed by Rick Stellwagen of Think Big, a Teradata Company, who will outline his company’s approach to handling Big Data implementations. Rick will discuss the role of the data lake, and how timely response of queries is critical for reporting and analysis.
