A data lake is a repository that holds a vast amount of raw data in its native format, including structured, semi-structured, and especially unstructured data, which represents approximately 80% of enterprise data generated. It leverages highly redundant, low-cost storage and provides more flexibility than traditional data management platforms.
Enterprise data lakes enable companies to acquire, store and explore large, disparate data sets, providing users with a broader view of customer, supplier, and employee interactions for a highly optimized business model. But building a data lake that enables users to find what they need quickly and easily without endless data preparation requires proven architectures, solution frameworks and data management practices. With unmatched expertise and extensive experience architecting, scaling and managing enterprise big data solutions, including data lakes, Cloudwick can help.
