THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: DataOps: A Paradigm Shift for Modern Data Integration

In the ever-evolving world of the data supply chain, you have likely experienced one or more of these trends:

  • You depend on more and more data that you can’t control
  • You need to provide data at the speed of thought
  • Your digital transformation is happening faster than your data infrastructure can keep up.

As a data leader, you have pressure to do more and faster. But just how fast can you go given the enormous complexity of data, platforms and architectures today?

DataOps is an approach that can tease order out of the accelerating chaos of modern architectures, and reconcile the apparent contradiction of complexity and agility. Continuous design, operation and observability of your data is fundamental to a DataOps approach.

Attend this session to learn:

  • Approaches for keeping pace with the relentless business demand for more data
  • Best practices for managing ever more complex data infrastructures
  • Viewpoints on how to balance agility with transparency and control
