Putting it all Together: Panel Discussion on Building Cloud Analytics Using an Open Lakehouse
TDWI Speaker: David Loshin, President of Knowledge Integrity
Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2022
Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET
In the first two webinars, we explored how open data lakehouse architectures not only provide a development and implementation pathway for cloud-based reporting and analytics, they reduce dependencies on vendor formats, systems, and products. In this webinar, a panel of developers and system integrators discuss experiences with clients who have transitioned from traditional data warehousing to an open data lakehouse approach. TDWI analyst David Loshin will review core aspects of an open data lakehouse architecture and then moderate a conversation among data lakehouse practitioners.
Webinar Series: Strategies for Democratized Cloud-based Analytics Using Open Lakehouse
The design of the traditional on-premises data warehouse is predicated on the presumption that data must be extracted from source systems, transformed into a format suited to an architecture specifically for analytical queries, and loaded into a segregated data system isolated from the original sources. Over the past decades, data warehouse design has abjectly followed this conventional wisdom, resulting in a piling on of technical debt that sometimes overwhelms the ecosystem for reporting and analytics.
As a platform, the cloud is positioned to change this. Fundamental aspects of cloud computing reduce or even eliminate technical dependencies that constrained the traditional data warehouse design, including, but not limited to:
- Decoupling of data from computing resources
- Effectively unlimited resource scalability
- Seamless data distribution
- Massively parallel computing
- Integrated data pipelines
No wonder that organizations are actualizing their analytics workloads to the cloud. A naive approach such as replicating an on-premises data warehouse in the cloud may seem like an easy approach for moving to the cloud. However, newer approaches such as data lakehouses that use an open foundation can provide a strategic architecture that best takes advantage of cloud services and technologies.
This series of three webinars examines the different aspects of the open data lakehouse and how it can support analytics performance and democratization while eliminating dependencies on proprietary data file structures, table formats, or system components.
