Iliad Webinar Series: Data lakes and data spaces - Towards best practices

Start: Wednesday 14th February 2024

End: Wednesday 14th February 2024

The next webinar in the Iliad series, "Data lakes and data spaces - Towards best practices " will take place virtually on 14th February 2024 at 15:00 CET.

Developing a digital twin of the ocean requires various combinations of processing a large amount of data and smaller diverse sets of data (big data: velocity, volume, value, variety and veracity). The concepts of data lakes and data spaces and combinations of these go into the development of digital twins. How do we do these combinations in the best possible way?  The solution is to follow standards and best practices. What are the best practices - or rather how can they be collectively created and these best practices shared? The webinar will be both educational (definitions of data lakes, data spaces, best practices) with presentations of approaches of combined use of data spaces and data lakes, and discussions on how we can efficiently co-design functional best practices.
