Why do 78% of data engineers wish their job came with a therapist to help manage work-related stress? The number one issue identified by those 700 respondents was too much time on finding and fixing errors. They know every data source, code, configuration, and tool in your data estate will give you problems at the worst possible time. Who wouldn’t be stressed when things could break, you don’t know, and you wait for the inevitable customer email telling you things are wrong?
Chris Bergh, a DataOps expert and CEO of DataKitchen, and Chip Bloche, a data engineer with decades of experience, shared detailed examples and techniques that you can implement today, including:
- How to observe every data journey from source to customer value.
- Reduce production errors to zero while increasing the delivery rate and lowering the risk of deploying new insight.
- How to learn from past mistakes and orgainze your team to make testing a part of their daily work.
Therapy is great, but the answer is to build observability, testing, and automation with DataOps into your day-to-day data work.
