Traditional business intelligence tools and pipelines built for the data warehouse still require that data is modeled, aggregated, and secured in separate tiers as it makes it way from the lake to a BI server to an actual business analyst or user.

Time-to-insight remains a challenge, and potential insights are limited if analysts are left with summarized data without the ability to drill to detail.

Join this podcast to hear how native BI for data lakes can help you overcome these pitfalls. With native BI for data lakes, you can:

  • Give business analysts direct access to raw data in the data lake. No more summarizing data and moving it to a BI server. No heavy modeling before analytic discovery can start.
  • Ensure that your lake remains secure. Native BI technologies for data lakes inherit the securities and permissions of your underlying data lake.
  • Accelerate time-to-insights. Native BI for data lakes enables you to scale data lake access and insights for your enterprise.
