I attended the 2016 Gartner Business Intelligence, Analytics & Information Management Summit that was held on 22 - 23 February in Sydney. Below are my notes surrounding Data Lakes.
What is a Data Lake?
A collection of storage instances of various data assets additional to the originating data sources. These assets are stored in a near-exact, or even exact, copy of the source format. The purpose of a data lake is to present an unrefined view of data to only the most highly skilled analysts, to help them explore their data renement and analysis techniques independent of any of the system-of-record compromises that may exist in a traditional analytic data store (such as a data mart or data warehouse)
