Comcast will present a live session on their architecture for metadata and security at our upcoming Databricks AWS  Cloud Data Lake DevDay. The event includes a hands-on lab with Databricks notebooks that integrate with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Services like AWS Glue and Amazon Redshift. Our partner Privacera will also show how their solution integrates with Databricks to help provide our customer Barbara Eckman, Senior Principal Software Architect, Comcast with a consistent security architecture across their AWS cloud and on-premises data lakes.

Building a Cloud Data Lake

Organizations want to leverage the wealth of data accumulated in their data lake for deep analytics insights. However, most organizations struggle with preparing data for analytics and automating data pipelines to leverage new data as data lakes are constantly updated. Making the shift to automated data pipelines can be challenging, but it’s become more urgent as the COVID-19 pandemic accelerates the move to a completely virtual workforce and collaborative problem solving.

Learn how to move from manual management of data pipelines to seamless automation in this collaborative workshop with experienced partners and customers to pave the way. >Join us Wednesday, November 11th, at 9:00 AM PST to experience a deep dive into the technology that makes up a modern cloud-based big data and analytics platform. The session provides a valuable live chat opportunity with our system architects to answer all your questions, as well as a set of Notebooks to recreate the entire journey.
