Unisphere Research and Radiant Advisors have announced the publication of a brand new report on the emerging concepts and strategies surrounding the data lake. By combining an analysis of fundamental information management principles with existing big data implementations, this report shows how current data architectures will transform into modern data platforms.
"Many companies recognize the value in Hadoop and a data lake strategy, however when they look for prescriptive information what they find instead are warnings and discouragement,” said John O’Brien, CEO of Radiant Advisors. “We wrote The Definitive Guide to the Data Lake to provide guidance to those considering the data lake by sharing the findings of companies within our research and advisory network that are actively implementing data lake strategies today.”
“Similar to the advent of data warehousing and cloud computing, there has been a lot of hype surrounding the concept of the data lake, as well as a lot of confusion,” remarked Thomas Hogan, publisher of Unisphere Research and Database Trends and Applications. “This is a big concept with the power to transform information management. What IT and business stakeholders need to effectively evaluate and adopt this approach is a roadmap for getting there and getting value.”
