The Data Lake Debate: Conclusion (With Apologies to the Rolling Stones)

When I wrote the introduction to the now-celebrated Data Lake Debate, I couldn’t have anticipated the buzz the exchange would get! Neither Anne Buff nor Tamara Dull pulled any punches in defending her perspective on the value and the perils of the data lake.

Like you, I agree with both of them. From Tamara’s perspective, the data lake presents a fresh and practical solution for easier data access, loading, cleansing, provisioning, and archiving, freeing companies from the yoke of traditional relational database systems and their accompanying processing and labor-intensive infrastructures.
