Executive Brief:

Data Lake Augmentation

Overview

The original promise of the data lake was to provide low-cost storage of all enterprise data where it could be subsequently analyzed in place. In reality, although an effective approach to low-cost storage of un-/semi- structured enterprise data, data lakes haven’t met demands for large-scale, real-time analytics, including support for concurrent BI users in great numbers, sophisticated ad hoc queries, or data-intensive reports.

Challenges

As a result, many enterprises have the following types of challenges:

  • People: The resources and skill sets required for managing data lakes can be hard to find and expensive.
  • Process: Integrating the data lake with existing analytic systems, such as BI and reporting tools, usually requires time-consuming operational tasks.
  • Technology: The hardware costs associated with data processing to keep the data lake viable can add up over time, and even with continual investment, time-to-insight will be slow.

Yellowbrick Solution

Yellowbrick is an innovative new data analytics solution for on-premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud deployments that removes the processing bottlenecks that have throttled data-driven insights from data lakes and legacy data warehouses. It enables lightning-fast SQL queries at petabyte scale, letting up to thousands of concurrent users answer the hardest questions at the speed of thought using common BI and data science tools -- no more waiting on slow, unreliable, and hard-to-manage approaches.

Only Yellowbrick lets you:

  • Get more value from data immediately
    Immediately query data in multiple formats, ingested from any data lake source at industry-leading volumes. And Yellowbrick works seamlessly with common enterprise data integration tools such as Informatica, Talend, and Denodo.
  • Enables thousands of analysts to run queries at lightning speed
    Yellowbrick delivers unparalleled predictable performance (in milliseconds)—with up to orders of magnitude more speed than alternatives--for even the most complex workloads, all while servicing up to thousands of concurrent users.
  • Uses investments in familiar data analytics tools
    Yellowbrick works seamlessly with leading reporting, BI, and data science tools, including Tableau, SAS, Microsoft Power BI, MicroStrategy, Python, R, and more.
  • Ensure flexibility through support for hybrid and multi-cloud
    Yellowbrick lets you natively run mixed workloads wherever it makes the most economical sense: in on-premises data centers, private clouds, or any major public cloud platform (AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud). So, you can transition workloads to any cloud on your own schedule.
