Many large organizations have accumulated dozens of disconnected data sources to serve different lines of business over the years. These applications might be useful to one area of the enterprise, but they’re usually inaccessible to other data consumers in the organization. In this short report, five data industry thought leaders explore DataOps—the automated, process-oriented methodology for making clean, reliable data available to teams throughout your company.
Andy Palmer, Michael Stonebraker, Nik Bates-Haus, Liam Cleary, and Mark Marinelli from Tamr use real-world examples to explain how DataOps works.
