This Week in DataOps: Rain, the Real World, and Another Manifesto (the Good Kind)

TWIDO logoAs the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers, unless you live in British Columbia, where April showers bring May showers, and let’s face it, the joke doesn’t work as well with June flowers and pilgrims.

It’s been a big week in the DataOps world. First off, if you missed it (or even if you didn’t and want to listen to it again—thanks, Mom), check out the recording of the joint webinar I did last week with Information Builders’ marketing VP Jake Freivald, “DataOps in the Real World.” We talked collaborative data orchestration (long hashtag), DataOps in healthcare, and fast-talkers. Some fun things you’ll learn:

  • Information Builders’ latest Omni-Gen release includes a unique, tiered-functionality offering of three different toolsets, including Integration, Data Quality, and MDM editions.
  • The Information Builders engagement with customer St. Luke’s University Health Network (a relationship I profiled here in an earlier DataOps research piece) was so successful that the two parties have collaborated to package the solution as a healthcare-vertical-targeted BI and analytics solution.
  • They can’t hear you if you knock your headset microphone away from your face.
  • No matter its relevance, “COMAECAL” is not a particularly marketable DataOps acronym. (Sing it with me, Collaborate! Orchestrate! Measure! Accelerate!…)

dataops_landing_890x200_1Qubole founders (and former Facebook infrastructure engineers, and Apache Hive co-developers) Ashish Thusoo and Joydeep Sen Sarma have just authored “Creating a Data-Driven Enterprise with DataOps.” The book—published by O’Reilly—evangelizes both DataOps corporate culture and platform. It also features case examples from the likes of eBay, Twitter, and Uber. Expect some promotion (!), presentations, and available copies at the upcoming Qubole-sponsored Data Platforms 2017 conference next month. (Check out my “Questioning Authority” DataOps interview with Qubole CEO Thusoo here.)

Also, in case you missed it, the big news last week was Infor’s acquisition of cloud BI and analytics developer Birst. The move is an interesting one, in part because it raises the profile of BI in an enterprise context: Infor offers ERP solutions, and now Birst BI tools will snap into that portfolio.

It’s still a work in progress but if you’re committed to DataOps like the folks at DataKitchen, check out the draft DataOps Manifesto developed by a consortium of DataOps leaders. (I’m a big fan of DataOps manifestos.) It’s a call to action for the DataOps-faithful, and a series of (evolving) DataOps principles.

Finally, I’m looking forward to the upcoming Talend Connect and Informatica World events in California. Find me and let’s talk DataOps ‘til we’re blue in the face. (Just kidding. I’ll stop at flushed pink.)
