New Podcast Episode: Navigating the Data Lake – Tips From a Practitioner

In this episode of the SnapTalk podcast series, enterprise architect Ravi Dharnikota talks with Rakesh Raghavan, Director of Snap Engineering at SnapLogic. Rakesh comes to SnapLogic having designed, developed and managed data lakes for several leading online retailers and consumer-facing websites. He has successfully navigated enterprise data lakes using open source tools and manual techniques, and in this episode shares his first-hand experiences.
