San Mateo, Calif. – September 28, 2022 – Ahana, the only SaaS for Presto, today announced it will lead a session at AI & Big Data Expo North America about the open data lakehouse. The hybrid event is being held October 5 – 6 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA and virtual.

Session Title: “Value of the Open Data Lakehouse”
Session Date & Time: Thursday, October 6 at 2:20 pm PT and virtual
Session Presenter: Ahana’s Rohan Pednekar, senior product manager
Session Details: With up to 80% of data stored in the data lake today, how do you unlock the value of the data lakehouse? The value lies in the compute engine that runs on top of an open data lakehouse. During this talk, Rohan will discuss the benefits of the emerging Open Data Lakehouse. He will also cover why Presto is the de facto query engine for the open data lake; what the open data lakehouse is; the benefits of moving to an open data lakehouse; and how the open source query engine Presto is critical to the open data lakehouse.

Presto is a widely adopted distributed SQL engine for data lake analytics. With Presto, users can perform ad hoc querying of data in place, which helps solve challenges around time to discover and the amount of time it takes to do ad hoc analysis.
