Challenges of Data Lake paving way for Data Reservoir

DataLakeIn my previous blogs I was discussing about Data Lake. Imagine you have pooled the entire data of your enterprise to a Data lake, there will be challenges. All this raw data will be overwhelming and unsafe to use because no-one is sure where data came from, how reliable it is, and how it should be protected. Without proper management and governance, such a data lake can quickly become a data swamp. This data swamp can cause frustration to the business users, application developers, IT and even customers.

So there is a need for a facility for transforming raw data into information that is Clean, Timely, Useful and Relevant. Hence an enhanced data lake solution was built with management, affordability, and governance at its core. This solution is known as a data reservoir. Probably in one of the subsequent blogs we will take a dip into data reservoir! Stay tuned.
