Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at 6:00:00 PM The GRID Collaborative Workspace 12022 BLUE VALLEY PARKWAY, OVERLAND PARK, KS 66213, Kansas City, MO

In the past few years, the term "data lake" has leaked into our lexicon. But what exactly IS a data lake? Some IT managers confuse data lakes with data warehouses. Some people think data lakes replace data warehouses. Both of these conclusions are false. Their is room in your data architecture for both data lakes and data warehouses. They both have different use cases and those use cases can be complementary.

At our next meet up, two people from the Snowflake team will come talk to us about why you need both in your data architecture and share their firm's solution to the problem.

Todd Reichmuth, Solutions Engineer with Snowflake Computing, has spent the past 18 years in the world of Data Warehousing and Big Data. He spent that time at Netezza and then later at IBM Data. Earlier in 2018 making the jump to the cloud at Snowflake Computing.

Mike Myer, Sales Director with Snowflake Computing, has spent the past 6 years in the world of Security and looking to drive awareness to better Data Warehousing and Big Data solutions available! Was previously at local tech companies FireMon and Lockpath and decided to join Snowflake due to the disruptive technology that's truly helping folks in the Big Data world on a day to day basis.

Todd will explore the differentiating value of a data lake vs a data warehouse and why a data driven company will need to satisfy both needs.

Doors open at 6. For socializing. The bar will be open! I said the bar is open not it's open bar. I know you got excited there for a moment. That said, Snowflake has graciously decided to buy you two beers on them. Come find me to get your beer chits.

The Grid is a little hard to find. If you get lost, DON'T POST A COMMENT! Text me. 785.845.2820.

Presentation starts at 6:30. See you soon!
