Peer-to-peer conversation: Building a modern data architecture: Presto for the open data lakehouse

Ali LeClerk, Community Outreach Committee Chair @ Presto

Tim Meehan, Software Engineer @ Meta

Girish Baliga, Senior Engineering Manager @ Uber

Today’s digital-native companies need a modern data infra that can handle data wrangling and data-driven analytics for the ever-increasing amount of data needed to drive business. Specifically, they need to address challenges like complexity, cost, and lock-in. An Open Data Lakehouse approach enables flexibility and better cost performance by leveraging open technologies and formats.

Presto is the open source SQL query engine for the Data Lakehouse, providing ad hoc and interactive queries on large amounts of data.

Join us for this fireside chat where Girish and Tim will share how Uber and Meta are leveraging Presto at scale to underpin their modern data infrastructures and why you should be using open source technologies like Presto for your Open Data Lakehouse architecture.
