What is Big Data

Data Lake Explained

A data lake is a large-scale repository of many types of enterprise data, stored in its native format. Types might include structured, semi-structured, or unstructured state, like databases, tagged mark-up, text messages or video.

By storing all information in a single repository, all data is available for analysis, removing the need to hunt for it, transform it, or integrate systems before running Big Data initiatives.

This single data pool unifies the enterprises’ data until the Schema and data requirements are defined for query, using business analytics and mining tools.


The architecture defines the value and insight an enterprise can derive from Big Data.

Big Data systems and solutions architecture is a complex design incorporating the volume, variety, and velocity of the all the data generated from around the enterprise. The ELT (extracted, loaded, and transformed) informatiob is used for Big Data and information lakes.

The architecture must be scalable and able to deal with constantly changing tools, software and technological advancement. Efficient planning around capacity, infrastructure, security, and deployment forms the basis of a robust Big Data architecture.


Big Data analytics involves deep understanding and examining of sets to produce actionable insight from identifiable patterns that help organisations make informed business decisions.

Technological advancements mean analytics brings benefits in both speed and accuracy.
