Did you know that just 13% of big data implementations are in full-scale production and only 27% have described their big data initiatives as successful? With all the “Hadoopla” around big data these last few years – not to mention the data lake – these sobering statistics give us pause. During this webcast, we’ll take a look at current big data trends, and address some of the questions savvy business practitioners are trying to understand: • What can Hadoop do that my data warehouse can’t? • We’re not doing “big” data, so why do we need Hadoop? • Is Hadoop really enterprise-ready? • Isn’t a data lake just the data warehouse revisited? • What are some of the pros and cons of a data lake? If you’re looking for a simplified, yet informative explanation of how these data technologies – i.e., the enterprise data warehouse, Hadoop, and the data lake – compare, converge, and diverge, then this webcast is for you.
