The last few years have proved that running a Data Lake or any Hadoop/Spark-powered big data platform is a complex endeavor for many enterprises. Over 80% of projects have failed to move into production, and others are plagued by high costs, skills shortages and unpredictable performance.
A flurry of data technology and cloud innovation has only added to the complexity. The landscape is constantly changing, and it's difficult to keep up. DevOps, cloud and security skills are in high demand, and the gap between digital natives and enterprises continues to grow...
Data Lake teams require many skill sets: cloud DevOps, security, integration, automation, architecture, database, etc. -- at a cost of ~$650,000 - $1.1M+ annually, according to market data. The high cost of development and ongoing operations makes ROI equations challenging, and too many are deemed data swamps or data lake failures. Simple equations show that 70-80% of the cost of production data lakes are driven by staff and processes for DevOps, causing a measurable drag on projects and results.
Cazena embeds and optimizes the components from best-of-breed technology partners (such as Cloudera, AWS, Azure, RStudio, etc), adding DevOps automation, enterprise security, monitoring, continuous optimization and 24x7 production operations. Cazena reduces data lake TCO by 50% or more vs PaaS alternatives, and completely eliminates the need for Dev. Find out how Cazena works >>
