Data Lakes in the Real World: Ask Us Anything

Modern data architectures look radically different as we move towards a new idea of data platforms. One popular term—the “data lake”—has been adopted by industry vendors, but what does it mean, and where is it headed?

During this "ask us anything" webinar we will cover the change in data architectures and their advantages, and talk about our experiences building new data architectures.

After a short introduction we’ll set most of the time aside for your questions and answers. We’ll have our expert architects and engineers on hand to talk about our experiences, from big picture architecture down to the performance aspects of individual systems.

Come and talk to us about:

  • Hadoop, Spark and the big data ecosystems
  • Moving on from legacy architectures
  • Choosing between the many options for data platforms
  • Planning and managing data platform projects
  • The nitty-gritty of running big data in production
