Abstract: For many companies, working with data lakes has become a frustrating and unsuccessful experience: instead of being focused on building analytics and improving the quality of the data lake, engineering teams often spend most of their time dealing with requests to ingest new data sources or wrangle data. As a result, they have little time left to focus on data improvement and delivering value from big data analytics.
Using Kylo, an open source data lake management platform, companies are able to generate valuable insight from their data lakes faster, bringing innovation via products and services to the market at unparalleled speed.
