Data Lake Solutions, Enterprise Adoption

Discover Enterprise Solutions to build your next Data Lake/Data Hub

zData is working with enterprise corporations to fully utilize all of their generated data.  We help commercial and enterprises
with the adoption of the Business Data Lake, also know as the Enterprise Data Hub, by using a systemized approach for implementation
and data extraction. The Data Lake is a new term for the place to store unlimited amounts of data in any format, schema and
type that is cost effective and massively scaleable. In many ways, this is not unlike the operational data store seen between
transactional systems and the data warehouse, but the Data Lake is bigger and less structured.
Any file can be “dumped” in the lake with no attention to data integration or transformation.

zData Big Data Lake
