Infographic | Data Lakes: Purposes, Practices, Patterns, and Platforms

May 8, 2017

When designed well, a data lake is an effective data-driven design pattern for capturing a wide range of data types, both old and new, at large scale. Organizations are adopting the data lake design pattern (whether on Hadoop or a relational database) because lakes provision the kind of raw data that users need for data exploration and discovery-oriented forms of advanced analytics. In the recent TDWI Best Practices Report: Data Lakes – Purposes, Practices, Patterns, and Platforms, we define data lake types, discuss emerging best practices, and take a look at user trends and readiness for data lakes. Here are several of the key survey results.

The cloud is becoming a mature platform for data management, integration, business intelligence (BI), and analytics. Business leaders understand that the cloud can provide flexibility, scalability, and agility for their BI and analytics projects. Instances of the cloud can quickly spin up (or down) without the cost and delays of installing on-premises applications. In the recent TDWI Best Practices Report: BI, Analytics, and the Cloud, we take a look at organizations’experiences with and plans for cloud BI and analytics, including how satisfied organizations are with the cloud and why, overcoming cloud adoption challenges, and what your organization should consider when moving to the cloud. Here are several of the key survey results.


Infographic | Improving Data Preparation for Business Analytics

August 16, 2016

Business users want the power of analytics—but analytics can only be as good as the data. The biggest challenge nontechnical users are encountering is the same one that has been a steep challenge for data scientists: slow, difficult, and tedious data preparation. The increasing volume, variety, and velocity of data is putting pressure on organizations to rethink traditional methods of preparing data for reporting, analysis, and sharing. In the recent TDWI Best Practices Report: Improving Data Preparation for Business Analytics, we take a look at experiences with data preparation, discuss goals and objectives, and uncover how to take advantage of the rapidly evolving technology and self-service capabilities that allow business users to realize insights from data faster. Here are several of the key survey results.
