And with that data migration comes the need to manage data in new ways–-which brings us to data lakes, or cloud-based repositories to store raw data. In 2016, a survey from IDC reported that more than 40% of businesses had imminent plans to deploy a data lake. Another 27% had plans to deploy one in the next few years, which reflects the ever increasing ubiquity of serverless data technology.
