Ahana cofounder and CEO Steven Mih joins host Jake Smith to talk about why he started Ahana, which centers around open source data tools. Steven discusses how Presto—an open source distributed SQL query engine—was originally developed by Facebook and then donated to the Linux Foundation. Jake and Steven note how only 10-12% of data has been analyzed within most companies and explain the valuable opportunities that can arise when greater insight is unlocked from data lakes. Steven goes into detail about why Ahana works with Intel-based AWS instances to deliver faster data-driven analytics and what the future of the industry might hold.
