The Operational Data Lake: Your On Ramp to Big Data

Companies recognize the need to integrate big data into their real-time analytics and operations, but this poses a lot of technical and resource challenges. Meanwhile, those organizations that have operational data stores (ODSs) in place find that, while useful, they are expensive to scale. The ODS gives real-time visibility into operational data.
