Data Management for Big Data, Hadoop, and Data Lakes

A perfect storm of data management trends is converging. First, organizations across many industries are experiencing the big data phenomenon, which forces them to capture and leverage data from new sources, in structures and velocities that are new to them, in unprecedented volumes. Second, technical users are scrambling to learn new data platforms like Hadoop and their evolving best practices. Third, the data lake arose suddenly in 2016 as the preferred approach to managing very large repositories of raw source data. Fourth, business managers have attained a new level of sophistication in their use big data for business value and organizational advantage.

Database Strategies for Modern BI and Analytics

The data universe has changed. Big data, cloud computing, and open source have dramatically expanded the number of data warehousing offerings available to today’s businesses. An increasing number of companies are implementing self-service business intelligence (BI) and visual analytics tools to access and make sense of all of the new and diverse sources of data their teams are consuming. Data literacy is changing equally fast as an increasing number of “data consumers” want to interact with data on their own rather than through IT.

End Your Data Struggle: How to Seamlessly Analyze Disparate Data

Many organizations today are struggling to get value from their data and advanced analytics initiatives. The struggle begins with data diversity, as organizations are trying to support new apps, customer channels, sensors, and social media outlets. Each source may have its own data structure, quality, and container (in the form of files, documents, messages). The struggle is exacerbated by the exploding volume of data that must be captured, processed, stored, and delivered to the right users in a state that is fit for their own individual needs.

Creating Value with Unified Governance

Certainly, every business leader wants to have trusted, secure, consistent and usable information. But data volumes and systems complexity has been increasing for years and most organizations rarely prioritize data governance, so why care now? We’re at the brink of a perfect storm of unprecedented IT megatrends. The convergence of Cloud, Social, Mobile and Big Data foreshadows the upcoming tsunami of data ripe with potential business value. But it will also make the frustrating complexity of your traditional on-premises transactional data management challenges appear amazingly “manageable” in contrast.

Take a Dive into the Data Lake

Many organizations have a serious interest in data lakes, at the moment, because of the business analytics and new data-driven practices that lakes promise. Yet, these organizations still aren’t quite ready to take a dive into a data lake. Whether they are unable to define standard structures, align and maintain business meanings, or create a governance strategy, these companies struggle to anticipate what truly lies beneath the surface of the data lake.
