Overview Data Lake including demystification of terminologies
Organisations now look to the Data Lake as the new single version of the truth where they looked as they used to look to a Data Warehouse. In this plenary Richard Conway will assess why every organisation needs to shift their thinking to accessibility of data as the source for all other sources. You will learn all terms and ideas of Data Lake related to design and implementation as well as dos and don’ts. An arsenal of words and good practice that every executive should have in their war chest!
