What is the use of data lake?
Hai @kousalya.jayasankar A data lake is a centralized repository that stores vast amounts of raw, unprocessed data in its native format. It is designed to accommodate structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data from various sources such as databases, logs, and more. The concept of a data lake emerged as a response to the limitations of traditional data warehousing approaches, which required data to be transformed and structured before it could be stored.
In a data lake, data is stored in its original form, without any predefined schema or organization. This flexibility allows for the storage of diverse data types and enables data exploration and analysis at a later stage.
