Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management for Big Data

When talking about big data the term data lake is often used, the term is originally introduced by James Dixon, Pentaho CTO. The term refers to gathering all available data so it can be used in a big data strategy. By introducing this term James Dixon was correct and part of collecting all data can be part of your big data strategy. However, there is a need to ensure your data lake is not turning into a data swamp. Gartner states some warning on the data lake approach in the “Gartner Says Beware of the Data Lake Fallacy” post on the Gartner website.

In my recent post on the Capgemini website I go into details on Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management and other Oracle products that can be used in combination with the Capgemini Big Data approach to ensure enterprises do get the best possible benefits from implementing a Big Data strategy.


Capgemini promotes a flow which includes Acquisition, Marshalling, Analysis and Action steps all supported by a Master Data Management & Data Governance solution.
