    Find out how a data geek turned marketer built a data lake across many different systems, along with the good and not-so-good results.

    So we decided to build a data lake for more flexibility in asking any questions with an ad hoc schema or read approach, against any customer data sets to better understand what our audience wants to consume.

    Check out this article to find out how I did it, along with all the good and not-so-good results, including some of the things we’re now able to analyze, such as best target audience, lead routing effectiveness and popular data connectivity scenarios.
