Data lake

What are the benefits of a data lake?

A data lake will help you leverage all your produced data to create revenues and reduce your costs. So you have to ask yourself why would my company need a data lake and what are my benefits from setting up a data lake? The set-up of a data lake in your company will help your company gain: 

    • Flexibility: The data in the data lake can be used for many types of use cases, as opposed to data warehouses, which are optimized for reporting.
    • Volume scalability: The data lake can store an increasing amount of data while keeping the cost low.
    • Data accessibility: Once in the data lake, data from siloed data sources can be combined.
    • Data exploration: Data lakes are great for data scientists who want to access and explore raw data efficiently.

Digazu helped many companies setting up their data lake solution through our platforms end-to-end data engineering platform and end-to-end data science platform. They embed a data lake that did not only give the above said gains but, due to Digazu’s out-of-the-box critical elements, it also helped the companies with : 

    • Lowering their implementation cost of the data platform, with a much lower TCO than home-made solutions or than a custom integration of the needed components.·      
    • Fastening the implementation of their data platform, typically within a few days, compared to months or years for home-made solutions.
    • Lowering the financial risk of the company’s solution: you can test and validate very quickly if the solution suits the company’s needs.
    • Decreasing the dependency on specialized data architecture data engineering skills.
    •  Increasing the agility and speed in your use cases implementation
