Episode Summary

In this episode of The Data Standard, host Catherine Tao talks about DataOps with Nick Heudecker, Senior Director of Marketing Strategy and Competitive Intelligence at Cribl.
Providing sound advice to technology buyers and technology vendors is quite challenging when there are too many pieces moving on the board. Being able to organize teams more efficiently and become more agile around data practices is vital for DataOps.

Collaborative data management practice comes with many challenges ranging from which technology to choose to how to structure a team that handles data collection, monitoring, recording, and processing. Integration, communication, and automation stand at the core of every DataOps project. The main goal is to improve data management practices and enable the data to flow from data producers to data consumers across an organization.

The problem is that data producers can be humans, but they could also be IoT devices. How might you better understand what that data is? How can you onboard that data more quickly and start to use it?
Tune in with Catherine Tao and Nick Heudecker to learn more about DataOps challenges and how it can lead to operational excellence.
