The Race for a Unified Analytics Warehouse

The Convergence of the Data Warehouse and the Data Lake

When the Hadoop vendors entered the market with their data lake concept, they presented a challenge to the enterprise data warehouse (EDW) providers. Data lakes drew a lot of attention, but businesses quickly realized that it takes much more than a lake full of data to add business value. However, the EDW players recognized that this new data lake idea wasn’t going away. So the race began between the data warehouse and the data lake, for a unified analytics warehouse.
