Enterprise data lakes are the centerpiece of cloud data management programs because they collect, manage, govern and prepare the data pipelines that feed data-driven applications.
The goal of digital transformation remains the same as ever – to become more data-driven. We have learned how to gain a competitive advantage by capturing business events in data. Events are data snap-shots of complex activity sourced from the Web, customer systems, ERP transactions, social media, IoT, streaming, and even machine-generated data. By collecting and processing event data in real-time, managers gain situational awareness to make better decisions.
