Data lakes are next-generation hybrid data management solutions that can meet big data challenges and drive new levels of real-time analytics. Their highly scalable environment supports extremely large data volumes, accepting data in its native format from a variety of data sources. As a compliment to your data warehouse, they provide the framework for machine learning and real-time advanced analytics in a collaborative environment.
IBM, in partnership with Cloudera, offers enterprise-grade products and services to help you build a data lake and then manage, govern, access and explore big data. Data lake solutions combine cost-effective, enterprise-grade open source technology with real-time analytic capabilities. Tap into the tremendous potential of previously unanalyzed data and make smarter, more agile, data-driven decisions.
