Best Practices for DataOps

How to Create Robust, Automated, Data Pipelines

DataOps promises to streamline the process of building, changing, and managing data pipelines. Its primary goal is to maximize the business value of data and improve customer satisfaction. It does this by speeding up the delivery of data and analytic output, while simultaneously reducing data defects—essentially fulfilling the mantra “better, faster, cheaper.”

DataOps emphasizes collaboration, reuse, and automation, along with a heavy dose of testing and monitoring. It employs team-based development tools for creating, deploying, and managing data pipelines. This report explains what DataOps is, where it came from, what it promises, and how to apply it successfully.
