Gartner: Data Lake Webinar Recap

Last Thursday I presented the webinar “From Pointless to Profitable: Using Data Lakes for Sustainable Analytics Innovation” to about 300 attendees. While we don’t consider webinar polling results valid data for research publication (too many concerns about survey sampling), webinar polls can offer some interesting directional insight.I asked the audience two questions. First, I asked what the data lake concept meant to them. There were some surprises:

The audience’s expectation for a data lake is as a platform to support self-service BI and analytics (36%), but also as a staging area for downstream analytics platforms (25%). It’s not unreasonable to combine these two together – the functionality for a data lake is largely the same in both cases. The users for each use case differ, as well as the tools, but it’s still the same data lake. A realistic approach is to think of these two use cases as a continuum. Self-service users first identify new or existing data sources that support a new result. Then, those data sources are processed, staged and moved to an optimized analytics platform.

It was reassuring to see smaller groups of respondents considering a data lake for a data warehouse replacement (9%) and as a single source for all operational and analytical workloads (15%). I expected these numbers to be higher based on overall market hype.
