I have to admit that I’ve struggled with the term “Data Lake.” I first heard the term used in 2010 in some marketing collateral about Hadoop from Pentaho (“Pentaho, Hadoop, and Data Lakes”) and was confused by the use of the term and the explanations. Maybe I was confused because lots of the earlier discussions were about how Hadoop would obfuscate (a.k.a. render obsolete) the need for an enterprise data warehouse.
Bill @Schmarzo again with an excellent article describing the need for #DataLakes. #BigData #Analytics
