Cloud-based data lakes provide enormous scalability and elasticity, empowering all business users to harness the true potential of data, cut down costs, and improve time-to-market.
Every organization strives for growth. They make efforts and fight for every chance to attract new customers and business. The strategy they use to do that can be different, however.
