 Learning Objectives

Why do we organise this short session on data lakehousing ?

The data lakehouse is the new popular data architecture. In a nutshell, the data lakehouse is a combination of a data warehouse and a data lake. It makes a lot of sense to combine them, because they are sharing the same data and similar logic.

This session discusses all aspects of data warehouses and data lakes, including data quality, data governance, auditability, performance, historic data, and data integration, to determine if the data lakehouse is a marketing hype or whether this is really a valuable and realistic new data architecture.

Who should attend this session ?

Your role can range from Chief Data Officers (CDO) and technology planner to ICT and enterprise architect, and from data analyst, data warehouse designer, data architect, solution architect, to data engineer, data scientist and data consultant.

Data Lakehousing

The data lakehouse is the new kid on the block in the world of data architectures. In a nutshell, the data lakehouse is a combination of a data warehouse and a data lake. In other words, this architecture is developed to support a typical data warehouse workload plus a data lake workload. It holds structured, semi-structured and unstructured data.

Technically, in a data lake house the data is stored in files that can be accessed by any type of tool and database server. The data is not kept hostage by a specific database server. SQL engines are also able to access that data efficiently for more traditional business intelligence workloads. And data scientists can create their descriptive and prescriptive models directly on the data.

It makes a lot of sense to combine these two worlds, because they are sharing the same data and they are sharing logic. But is this really possible? Or is this all too good to be true? This session discusses all aspects of data warehouses and data lakes, including data quality, data governance, auditability, performance, immutability, historic data, and data integration, to determine if the data lakehouse is a marketing hype or whether this is really a valuable and realistic new data architecture.
