Big data, advanced analytics tools driving growth in data lakes

The explosive growth of big data coupled with advancements in data lakes analytics is expected to drive growth of the data lakes market in the coming years, according to a recent report by Market Research Future.

The global data lakes market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rare (CAGR) of 28 percent from 2017 to 2023.
