The use of data lakes continue to grow, and a recent survey by Eckerson Group shows that organizations are getting real value from their deployments. However, there’s still a lot of room for improvement when it comes to giving business users access to the wealth of potential insights in the data lake.

While the data management aspect has been fairly well understood over the years, the success of business intelligence (BI) and analytics on data lakes lags behind. In fact, organizations often struggle with data lakes because they are only accessible by highly-skilled data scientists and not by business users. But BI tools have been able to access data warehouses for years, so what gives?

In this talk, we’ll discuss:

  • Why traditional BI tools are architected well for data warehouses, but not data lakes.
  • Why every organization should have two BI standards: one for data warehouses and one for data lakes.
  • Innovative capabilities provided by BI for data lakes
