Introducing Cuddle’s Datahub

The Problem

Without the right tools, a data lake is just another expense.

Most enterprise businesses that have invested in building data lakes are not utilizing it properly because the data lake strategy doesn’t end at just creating a data lake. It needs to drive value to the business through improved data access for analysis and driving business decisions. 

Even organizations like Mckinsey and PwC have admitted that the main challenge is not creating a data lake, but taking advantage of the opportunities it presents. 

Since data lakes are not designed for direct analytics consumption, enterprises need the right tools to provide BI ready data for business users. 

Without Cuddle Datahub

The problem is – most often, enterprises duplicate data by putting it into proprietary data warehouses from individual data sources within the data lake and converting them into data cubes and aggregations, which adds to infrastructure cost. 

And it could get worse – data from the data lake might never even reach the consumers of data because it isn’t made available to them in the BI tools of their choice or made available for other analysis.

Organizations have data sitting across sources, it is not easy to get them together to serve business intelligence and other analysis needs.

The Solution

Cuddle is the perfect solution to the “under-utilization of the data lake storage” problem.

It provides lightning-fast, real-time analytics at your fingertips and connects to multiple data sources within your data lake directly, without having to duplicate data. 

You can bring your data to life using Cuddle’s AI-powered BI tool for the purpose of dashboarding, reporting, querying your data using natural language, and automated insight discovery.
