Querying your data lake with SQL

With more data stored in more places, data analytics in the cloud can be complicated. You have to manage infrastructure, the data itself, multiple data sources, and data ingestion. 

Ahana Cloud provides self-service analytics for faster data lake analytics so you can spend your time deriving insights from your data instead of managing the complexities inherent to open data lake analytics systems.
