UniversIT, MeriTalk’s online library of training courses offering 20-minute complimentary education opportunities to IT pros across the spectrum, opens the doors to its newest course, Dive into Data Lakes: Centralized Data Enables Mission Success.
If you have about an hour to spend with UniversIT, you’ll watch concise lessons on the function of data lakes, the role cloud plays, and the benefits of deploying a data lake.
Broken into three 20-minute segments, the first session in the course covers how to get started with data lakes, how to use object-based storage to transfer and manage data, how to integrate analytics and machine learning, how to use storage tiers to optimize costs, and how to audit, secure, and query data.
The second session explains data lake benefits and offers a number of use cases from AWS customers. Those include cases on serverless analytics, streaming data analytics, petabyte-scale analytics, and data warehouse modernization.
The course finishes with a review of best practices for implementation, including securing senior leadership buy-in, creating measurable outcomes, and figuring out necessary infrastructure requirements.
