Understanding what a data lake is and what it needs to do is as important as understanding how to technically build it. A strong data lake strategy must be grounded in business goals and iteratively developed to ensure the platform provides value now and into the future.

As enterprise organizations look to comprehend and capitalize upon the opportunities presented by growing, in volume and number, data sources, capabilities of modern BI technologies and sophistication of user demands, it’s important to think about where a data lake may add organizational value.

To provide value, a data lake should be flexible, adaptable and built in a way so it can evolve as data and analytics needs to develop and grow. In this recorded webcast, Thorogood Consultant Ben Dunmire shares considerations on implementing a robust strategy to drive the design and implementation of a data lake solution to provide high business value. By understanding common challenges, identifying existing synergies, and planning for future opportunities, a data lake or similar solution can be leveraged for various business functions as data and analytic needs evolve.
