Why You Need a Data Lake for Big Data

Big data is quickly becoming every business’ best resource. In its 2018 Cloud Markets and Trends Report, Wikibon predicted a 17 percent compound annual growth rate for big data software over the next 10 years. Using the data and insights captured with big data solutions, companies are finding new ways to improve current business operations, uncover insights, and drive unexpected efficiencies.

Increasingly, the answer is to gather the data within a central repository: a data lake.

With data lakes, you can use archived data from any source for data-driven initiatives. This enables you to operationalize machine learning and process streaming data, ultimately bringing structure and access to big data.

Use Data Labs with Data Lakes

Data lakes offer a resource-friendly way of storing and accessing data, but what happens when you need to dig deeper? A data lab is a separate environment where smaller data extracts can be manipulated, explored, and analyzed. A data lab can be used to:

  • Optimize IT resources by working in a lab environment on a smaller, controlled scale
  • Allow for experimentation to generate new insights and strategies
  • Safely manipulate data without impacting the data lake
