In the new world of “data lakes,” where raw data is collected for subsequent discovery and analysis, lies the task of managed data ingestion. While data lakes may dispense with the ultra-formality of an Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), data quality is nonetheless crucial. Users may like informal access to data, but they don’t want data that’s dirty or inaccurate. If the data lake is polluted, then it will also be stagnant, from disuse.
