Hosted by DM Radio

Wayne Eckerson

Founder and Principal Consultant

Data lakes took root because they provided an instant sandbox for data scientists to explore raw data sourced from operational, analytical, and external systems.

As data lakes have matured, organizations have begun to ask whether they can be used to support more traditional business users — executives, managers, and front-line workers who want to learn from curated data and dashboards, not wrangle with raw data and SQL.

Please join us for this joint webinar with the Eckerson Group and the Bloor Group. In this webinar, several industry experts will discuss:

  • The evolution of data lakes and analytical tools
  • Whether business users are really taking advantage of these new data constructs
  • How organizations can measure the efficacy of their data lakes with seven key metrics
