The challenge with data is that there is so much of it, so much so that it is impossible to consume and analyze as fast as it is being produced.  Dunn Solutions' data lake consultants will show you how the data lake provides your organization with a flexible and cost effective way to store data for later processing and analysis.   Much of this this data is streaming and transient, if you don't capture it when it's produced you will never get the chance to analyze it.  IoT data, social media data carrying valuable insight simply goes untapped.  Dunn Solutions' data lake consultants will help you capture and store this valuable information in a data lake so that your analysts and research teams have data to find the next big thing, whether it be a trend, anomaly or actionable insight.

Why not use your enterprise data warehouse?  The enterprise data warehouse holds your organizations' business process metrics, it only contains highly processed data used for measuring business process KPIs and metrics.  More importantly, the enterprise data warehouse requires weeks and months of lead time before new data sources can be introduced.  It has valuable information, but not the raw data needed for your data discovery teams.  Data scientists, analysts and research teams need more than the purified and pristine data found in the warehouse, they want all the data that is available – and they need it now.  Dunn Solutions' data lake experts will create a data lake (in the cloud, that's where it belongs) and provide you with a flexible reservoir for your raw structured, unstructured and semi-structured data.  The data that data scientists, citizen data scientists and researchers want and need.

Dunn Solutions' data lake consultants will give your data starved data scientists, researchers and analysts access to all the raw data they could want: Social media data, streaming data, IoT data in any form.  With the raw data, schema (structure) can be applied at consumption time (this is the concept of ELT, extract, load and transform) when you know how it's going to be used.  Bottom line, Dunn Solutions' data lake consultants will provide you with a data lakes that provides your data scientists, citizen data scientists and analysts and research teams quick and easy access to the information they need to explore, analyze and discover.

Dunn Solutions' data lake consultants have extensive experience in traditional data warehouse and business intelligence and understand where the line is drawn between traditional data warehouses and data lakes as well as how these two data platforms can work together to give your organization a flexible environment for discovery and a structured environment for business process.
