What you'll learn

  • Explore a recommended data lake reference architecture and a set of considerations for management, operations, security, and governance


Today’s enterprises need broader access to data for a wider array of use cases to derive more value from data and get to business insight faster. However, it’s critical that companies also ensure the proper controls are in place to safeguard data privacy and comply with regulatory requirements. What does this look like? What are best practices to create a modern, scalable data infrastructure, whether in the public cloud or hybrid environments, that can support this business challenge?

TMX partnered with Zaloni to implement a data lake to tackle this challenge. TMX’s Selwyn Collaco and Zaloni’s Ben Sharma share insights from their real-world experience and discuss:

  • Best practices for architecture, technology, data management, and governance to enable centralized data services
  • How to address lineage, data quality, privacy and security, and data lifecycle management
  • How to leverage the Zaloni Data Platform (ZDP), an integrated self-service data platform, to operationalize the enterprise data lake

This session is sponsored by Zaloni.
