In 2010, the concept of data lake emerged as an alternative to data warehouses for big data management. Data lakes follow a schema-on-read approach to provide rich and flexible analyses. However, although trendy in both the industry and academia, the concept of data lake is still maturing, and there are still few methodological approaches to data lake design. Thus, we introduce a new approach to design a data lake and propose an extensive metadata system to activate richer features than those usually supported in data lake approaches. We implement our approach in the AUDAL data lake, where we jointly exploit both textual documents and tabular data, in contrast with structured and/or semi-structured data typically processed in data lakes from the literature. Furthermore, we also innovate by leveraging metadata to activate both data retrieval and content analysis, including Text-OLAP and SQL querying. Finally, we show the feasibility of our approach using a real-word use case on the one hand, and a benchmark on the other hand.
