  • “Organizations are turning to cloud data lakes to aggressively pursue advanced analytics as part of data-driven digital transformation initiatives,” said Ronen Schwartz, senior vice president and general manager, Big Data, Cloud and Data Integration, Informatica. “The opportunity for enterprises to disrupt antiquated data delivery processes and deliver new business innovations with cloud data lakes, derives from having a single, integrated, AI-driven approach to data management for any data and any user. Manual, fragmented, and siloed solutions that lack artificial intelligence and compartmentalize data users from one another, simply cannot scale for the era of cloud computing.”
