AWS Architecture Monthly Data Lakes cover imageA data lake is the fastest way to get answers from all your data to all your users. It’s a centralized repository that allows you to store all your structured and unstructured data at any scale. You can store your data as-is, without having to first structure the data, and run different types of analytics—from dashboards and visualizations to big data processing, real-time analytics, and machine learning—to guide better decisions.

In This Issue

In this month’s Architecture Monthly, we speak to AWS Analytics Tech Leader, Taz Sayed, about general architecture trends in data lakes, the questions customers need to ask themselves before considering a data lake, and we get his outlook on the role the cloud will play in future development efforts.

We also introduce you to two companies that are utilizing data lakes for deep analytics, point you to an AWS managed solution, provide some real-world videos, and more.
