The Presto Foundation is the organization that oversees the development of the Presto open source project. Hosted at the Linux Foundation, the Presto Foundation operates under a community governance model with representation from all its members. In this fireside chat, we’ll hear more from Girish Baliga, Chair of the Presto Foundation, on what it actually means to be a Presto Foundation member and why this governance model is so important for open source projects. We’ll also talk with Vikram Murali of IBM, the newest member of the Presto Foundation. He’ll share more about IBM’s journey to Presto, how they’re using it in IBM’s new watsonx.data lakehouse, and why the Presto Foundation played an important role in IBM’s decision to choose Presto.
In this demo we’ll go through two key pieces of watsonx.data, IBM’s new Data Lakehouse offering.
