Certain vendors have suggested that the organization throw data into a data lake and then let end users analyze the data in the data lake. The data lake quickly turns into a data swamp or sewer. No one gets any value out of the data lake. In order to turn your data into something useful you need to turn your data lake into a Data Lakehouse. This presentation is all about the evolution of architecture and how to start to get value out of your data lake.
