The Databricks Lakehouse offers enterprises the opportunity to consolidate BI and data science workloads onto the same platform, combining the performance and governance of the data warehouse with the flexibility of the data lake. But to achieve this, the Databricks Lakehouse needs to ingest high volumes of data from operational and analytical databases and data warehouses at low latency. Streaming data pipelines, enabled by real-time change data capture (CDC), can help. CDC continuously transfers new and changed data into Databricks, which increases efficiency, scalability, and performance compared with legacy batch pipelines.
This webinar explains what CDC is, why enterprises need it, and how to design CDC pipelines for ingestion into the Databricks Lakehouse. It also defines three must-have elements—multi-node streaming, auto-scaling, and heterogeneous platform support—that enable CDC to meet modern enterprise requirements.
Join the discussion with Eckerson Group, Databricks, and Arcion to learn:
- Adoption drivers and use cases for the Databricks Lakehouse
- The role of CDC in migrations and ongoing updates
- Must-have elements for effective CDC
- A demo of real-time CDC with Arcion to Databricks Lakehouse
