New Releases of Bedrock and Mica Expand Data Lake Beyond Hadoop

Posted by Kelly Schupp, VP, Data-Driven Marketing on Feb 9, 2017 9:33:09 AM

With our latest Bedrock and Mica updates, we’re pushing the boundaries of what has up until now typically defined a data lake: Hadoop. Why are we moving in this direction? Because it makes sense for our clients, who need a solution to centralize management of data from siloed data systems, legacy databases and hybrid architectures. Our solutions support the concept of a data lake beyond Hadoop to encompass a more holistic, enterprise-wide approach. By constructing a “logical” data lake architecture versus a physical one, we can give companies transparency into all of their data regardless of its location, enable application of enterprise-wide governance capabilities, and allow for expanded, controlled access for self-serve business users across the organization.

The data can be structured or unstructured. You can then use a variety of storage and processing tools—typically tools in the extended Hadoop ecosystem—to extract value quickly and inform key organizational decisions.
