Data Onboarding for Cloud Data Lakes
This checklist explains five ways to support data onboarding and simplify cloud data migration and modernization.
Growing data volumes will overburden manual attempts at data ingestion, so plan for data onboarding that encompasses the full life cycle of data ingestion, synchronization, pipeline orchestration, and governance. Data awareness is critical to proper planning, and we suggest crawling the data to accumulate intelligence about the data landscape. Identifying data owners and engaging them in a dialog about roles and responsibilities will clarify accountability for data usability.
Finally, simplify the operational processes by employing products and technologies that leverage data intelligence for automating data ingestion and data synchronization.
