Metadata and the Power of Pattern-Finding - May 24, 2016

About the Webinar

According to Gartner, “through 2018, 80 percent of data lakes will not include effective metadata management capabilities, making them inefficient.” Tools within the Apache Spark ecosystem, such as SparkSQL, MlLib, and GraphX, are making ingesting, transforming, and querying data easier, but a missing link remains.

In order to harness the power of pattern-finding to discover unknown insights from the relationships between your historical Big Data and streaming Fast Data, a mature, proven metadata repository must be at the center of your organization’s data architecture.

In this webinar, Leon Guzenda, Chief Technical Marketing Officer at Objectivity, will discuss how to use metadata to not just follow paths, but also patterns, including more efficient shipping routes, recommendation engines, or ways to catch money laundering and other types of financial fraud. It will discuss the pros and cons of open source tools and how to leverage them with a metadata repository to reach the true potential of real-time relationship discovery.
