Today, most organizations recognize that their data is a valuable resource.  Yet, in most cases, they fail to realize much of the potential value hidden therein. The inherent value of data is mostly hidden from view --  Like an iceberg, the bulk of it is invisible to most observers. Even the most gifted have difficulty discerning where the nuggets of value are hidden among the data’s bulk.  This is not only for the apparent reasons of visibility and complexity. 

The bulk of the value of data remains hidden until it is activated by the presence of other synergistic data.  Two datasets with little apparent utility can often be combined to form a unique value proposition, just as two invisible gasses (Hydrogen and Oxygen) can combine to create an unpredictable outcome – liquid water. This data alchemy can produce new insights, but can also enable completely new businesses or industries.  This has happened time and time again. But when we try to apply traditional data processing techniques to unlock the value of data, we not only fail to glean the value expected, but we often inhibit the very process by which the value is discovered. 

Data Lake is an architecture and methodology for the continuous extraction of value from complex and diverse data resources, whether public or private.  It has been successfully used  by many organizations, and has spawned whole new lines of business.  More important, it has enabled these businesses to continue to extract new value, even as earlier insights are put into production. 

In this webinar you will learn how the open source HPCC Systems Data Lake Management Platform empowers you to: 

  • Quickly build a Data Lake repository that provides an evolutionary foundation for the extraction of data value
  • Explore your data and enrich it in an unbounded number of directions
  • Rapidly convert data discoveries and insights into hardened production applications
  • Support large teams of developers while minimizing bottlenecks
  • Economically scale to nearly unlimited data volumes and any size user base
