Shaun Bierweiler, vice president of Hortonworks‘ U.S. public sector business, said in an interview published Thursday on CIO Dive that organizations would experience the advantages of a data lake if they determine the usefulness of information stored in the system.

“At a very high level, a data lake is simply a storage component where you can put structured or unstructured data in its raw format,” Bierweiler was quoted as saying.

“When you dig a little bit lower and get use case and applicability of [data], that’s where the magic really happens.”

Bierweiler noted many companies that manage big data struggle to address mission requirements or obtain desired outcome on time.
