The Data Lake Debate

Data lakes offer businesses the ability to store vast amounts of raw data until it is ready for use. And if big data technologies like Hadoop can store any and all kinds of data for an insanely cheap cost, then why don’t we use it to capture, store, and process all our enterprise data? This question is at the heart of the data lake debate. While vendors and analysts continue to line up on both sides of this discussion, companies and agencies are still trying to figure out if they should even care.

In this webinar, IIA and special guests Tamara Dull and Anne Buff of SAS Best Practices debate the pros and cons of the data lake repository, and help business and IT professionals understand what’s at play and why they should care.
