Efficient Strategies for Implementing a Data Lakehouse

Webinar Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI VP Research, Senior Research Director for Advanced Analytics

Date: Thursday, December 14, 2023

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET

The data management landscape is undergoing a transformation thanks to the emergence of the data lakehouse—a hybrid architecture that combines the strengths of data warehouses and data lakes. Organizations are increasingly drawn to this approach because it offers a scalable and flexible solution for modern data management and analytics. At TDWI, we've observed growing interest in this platform as businesses work to unlock the full potential of their data assets.

Although a data lakehouse promises many benefits, organizations often encounter challenges when migrating to this environment. The process can be time-consuming, complex, and error-prone. In this webinar, we'll explore the common hurdles organizations face and provide expert guidance for overcoming them. Experts include representatives from Koantek, the Databricks’ Velocity Partner of the Year, along with two companies that were up and running with a Databricks Lakehouse after just one month.

This session will provide valuable insights and strategies to more efficiently implement a data lakehouse environment. Topics include:

  • The benefits of data lakehouse
  • Challenges organizations face when migrating to a lakehouse
  • Real-life strategies for shortening your data lakehouse implementation time
