Pivotal Business Data Lake


JT will talk about what a true business data lake is, it’s purpose, it’s components, and its usefulness.

With a flexible data infrastructure – or a Data Lake – suited for business needs, a flexible and agile big data architecture unlocks insights from information and allows organizations to apply them by building the next Big Data Application through tools like Spring, Hadoop and GemFire, to impact top line revenue.
