Governing and Managing Big Data for Analytics and Decision Makers
Analytics

Redguide, published 26 Aug 2014

It is estimated that a staggering 70% of the time spent on analytics projects is concerned with identifying, cleansing, and integrating data. Acquiring data for analytics in an ad hoc manner creates a huge burden on the teams that own the systems supplying data. Often the same type of data is repeatedly requested and the original information owner finds it hard to keep track of who has copies of which data. As a result, many organizations are considering implementing a data lake solution. A data lake is a set of one or more data repositories that have been created to support data discovery, ... [more]
