In today's constantly changing business environment, organizations must collect and analyze large amounts of diverse data to stay competitive. However, many organizations realize that their current data management environment is not sufficient for their needs, especially when it comes to advanced analytics such as machine learning that require the use of unstructured or semistructured data.
A new paradigm has emerged in recent years to help with this problem—the cloud data lakehouse. This design pattern combines the best of both worlds—a data lake and a data warehouse—to provide warehouse data structures and management functions on low-cost cloud platforms like object stores. It supports any analytics/SQL tool as part of the stack. It is optimized for modern data implementations and use cases and it supports data governance.
In this webinar, we will explore the key pillars of the modern cloud data lakehouse and why it is important for modernizing data warehouses. Join us to learn:
- What the data lakehouse is and why it emerged as a new data platform
- The requirements for the modern data lakehouse
- Best practices for implementing a data lakehouse in your organization
