The amount of data that businesses generate and collect continues to soar, and enterprises that want to accelerate their end-to-end processes and obtain business insight can’t keep using the manual data management processes they have relied on for decades. And the situation will only get worse in the coming years. IDC expects the amount of data to grow at a 32% CAGR to 180 zettabytes by the year 2025. Fortunately, DataOps can help.
DataOps is a relatively new and still-maturing discipline that arose about five years ago. It’s built on the foundations created by agile development and DevOps, and the goal is to bring similar principles to data analytics and data science to improve data quality and reduce the time required for obtaining actionable business intelligence.
