Strategies for Fitting a Data Lake into a Modern Data Architecture

McKnight Consulting Group

Whether to take data ingestion cycles off the ETL tool and the Data Warehouse or to facilitate competitive Data Science and building algorithms in the organization, the Data Lake a place for unmodeled and vast data will be provisioned widely in 2019. Though it doesn’t have to be complicated, the Data Lake has a few key design points that are critical, and it does need to follow some principles for success. Avoid building the Data Swamp, but not the Data Lake! The tool ecosystem is building up around the Data Lake and soon many will have a robust Lake and Data Warehouse. We will discuss policy to keep them straight, send “horses to courses,” and keep up users’ confidence in the Data Platforms.

Planning for a Scalable Enterprise Data Lake

tdwi.org

In this webinar we will discuss a more modern view of the data lake and consider best practices for planning and implementing a scalable enterprise data lake. The flaws in early data lakes were often rooted in the expectations of data consumers who put a premium on self-service data analytics. However, with no data governance mechanisms, data lakes quickly became more of a glorified “dumping ground,” “data swamp,” or “beta lake” for organizational data.In recent years, though, some innovations have allowed the data lake to evolve into an agile yet managed environment for accumulating shared data resources that can be optimally used for competitive advantage. Data lakes have evolved beyond the original on-premises concept based solely on Hadoop and now include pretty much any distributed computing platform (Hadoop, Spark, EMR, serverless, etc.) and any storage mechanism (HDFS, S3, ADLS), either on-premises or in the cloud.

When you need to monitor and control variation in your process, a control chart will help you to separate special causes from common cause variation or random variation. Yet how do todays types of data, including full inspection, impact this tool's effectiveness? The control chart was created in the 1920s, a time when measurement, data capture and calculation were done manually, making sampling essential. Today, how data is collected has all changed.
