Think Big Data Lake Services to Improve Success with Hadoop® Data Lakes

February 17, 2015 | SAN DIEGO

New services help improve data management practices, streamline data lake architectures

To enable organizations to get the most value from their data lakes, Think Big, a Teradata (NYSE: TDC) company, today announced the expansion of its consulting services to include Data Lake Optimization. The optimization of Apache™ Hadoop®-based data lakes enable organizations to accelerate the use of big, diverse data to enable smarter business decisions.

“There is a complex, ever changing landscape of technical and business choices for data lake deployment and optimization,” said Ron Bodkin, president, Think Big, a Teradata company.
“We help organizations avoid the pitfalls associated with data lake projects, so they can focus less on data management and more on driving business results.”

Effective data lake management and governance is not well understood. Without best practices, organizations cannot leverage big data to achieve measurable business value. Think Big offers guidance on data lake optimization techniques gained from more than 100 big data-specific engagements, including large-scale Hadoop implementations. Some of the world’s most forward-thinking organizations have trusted Think Big to support their strategic business goals.

Think Big Data Lake Optimization engagements include an assessment, gap analysis and action plan. The service offers recommendations on building governance and data lineage for current and future data streams, deploying improved data management practices, and creating better data archiving and security. Think Big teams can rapidly implement best practices to manage, tune, improve, and maintain the data lake environment whether it is on-site or hosted in the cloud. To address individual customer requirements, Think Big will recommend the best industry-available products and work with leading partner technologies to round out data lake capabilities.

Think Big Data Lake Optimization services are now available in the Americas, with near-term plans to expand to Europe. Other consulting capabilities include big data roadmap development, data lake architecture and implementation, analytic solution enablement and ongoing solution support.
