What is DataOps?

DataOps is analogous to DevOps for data teams. It’s not quite as simple as that though because data teams and their platforms have unique challenges that software teams don’t have. The ideas and motivations are still the same: apply software development best practices to data platforms to produce better data products and achieve better outcomes.

What Problems Does DataOps Solve?

DataOps needs to solve some unique challenges: data testing, data quality monitoring, backfilling, and that’s only the beginning. Some of the core tenants of DevOps (git repositories, version control, code reviews, isolated environments, etc.) for a Data Platform go a long way towards getting there.

Automation

A good DataOps platform should automate data delivery from multiple sources at the same time, supporting both structured and unstructured data across hybrid and cloud environments.

Fast Feedback

DataOps also enables productive collaboration both within data teams and with other departments. Create a place to collaborate on projects and automate deployments.

Collaboration

Organizations can have extreme volumes of data sitting in a data lake. For business intelligence or reporting, analytics engineers depend on the data from a data lake to prepare a filtered and aggregated table.

Reduced Development Time

DataOps focuses on process-oriented methodologies and automation to improve workforce productivity. By introducing intelligent testing and observation mechanisms into the analytic pipeline, teams can stay focused on strategic tasks vs ploding over spreadsheets looking for anomalies.

Improved Data Quality and Reliability

The creation of automated, repetitive processes, along with automated code testing, data quality assertions, and controlled deployments reduces the likelihood of wrong or unexpected data downstream.
