Data Lakes and Analytic Platforms are continuing to evolve to address the changing needs of customers. Most existing data lakes were built one use case at a time without a proper data architecture or analytics strategy.

In this presentation, featured speaker George Trujillo will show the capabilities and characteristics of the next generation of data lakes (Data Management and Analytic platforms). George will also discuss how new data lakes will accelerate time to insight, leverage cloud capabilities, separate compute and storage and optimize cloud storage.

Platform decisions, data ingestion architectures, data governance, model governance, security and designing an enterprise grade data lake are topics of discussion.

The goal of this presentation is to show how the next generation of data lakes will greatly reduce time to insight and platform complexity.
