At the same time, businesses continue to struggle to build enterprise applications fast enough. But cloud technology is forging a new way to build software and accelerate innovation. </p> <p>As more and more organizations adopt cloud-based applications, platforms, and services for greater elasticity and faster delivery times, the benefits of cloud computing are moving beyond simply acquiring technological agility to powering business innovation. IBM’s latest <a href="https://www.ibm.com/blogs/cloud-computing/2017/05/17/cloud-drives-enterprise-innovation/">Institute for Business Value study</a> found 74 percent of enterprises significantly achieved improved customer experiences through its cloud initiatives. </p> <p>Today, applications sit at the heart of today’s enterprise businesses, and bringing better digital experiences to customers requires cloud technology and a solid data strategy. Let’s begin with discussing the top 3 benefits of migrating and developing applications in the cloud. </p> <h4>1. AppDev Happens More Quickly in the Cloud</h4> <p>One of the most exciting services the cloud offers is the ability to build applications with speed. When application development and testing are done in a cloud environment, there's no waiting to procure, configure, provision infrastructure, so software and microservices can be updated and released faster. The increased speed becomes a huge factor when reacting to changes in consumer preferences and trends or resolving issues. The bottom line: Dev teams can focus on creating the application itself rather than worrying about infrastructure, storage, or even horsepower. </p> <h4>2. Agility + Reliability + Speed = Better, Stronger, Faster</h4> <p>Cloud environments offer access to the latest automation technology for agility and speed. These can include development platforms, such as Kubernetes for automating application deployment and management, and cloud-based tooling for <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/data-ready-for-AI">AI/ML</a>. Cloud infrastructure is also more scalable to handle peaks and valleys in development cycles. Cloud providers, including <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/delivering-speed-security-to-cloud-native-apps">AWS</a>, <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/migrate-sql2008-workloads-to-azure">Azure</a>, and GCP have pay as you go models, so you only pay for increased usage when you need it. </p> <p>Moreover, the cloud is more reliable than most in-house data centers. Many cloud providers have service level agreements that ensure uptime with costs associated when applications are not available or slower than usual. While there have been well-publicized failures, many providers learn from those events and build resilience and redundancy into their infrastructure to overcome issues, such as human error or malicious hacking attempts. It’s much more difficult for an enterprise to have the same level of reliability and resilience. </p> <h4>3. Meeting Consumer Demand via Self-Service</h4> <p>Banks, hotels, airlines, and <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/legacy-erp-holding-you-back-invest-in-data">retailers</a> lead the way in giving customers the ability to access their information, make changes, and conduct transactions without the delay of human interaction. That’s because cloud providers assume the administrative burden related to creating users and managing user requests through their tools and infrastructure that facilitates a seamless and reliable experience. Motivated by independence and efficiency, it’s fair to say that most Gen Xers, millennials, and even some baby-boomers prefer <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/self-service-speeding-up-software-development">self-service technology</a> rather than long waits on the phone.</p> <h4>Building Applications Faster Means Building Products and Services Faster</h4> <p>Innovative businesses, like <a href="https://www.delphix.com/press-release/delphix-amazon-relational-database-service">Choice Hotels International</a>, are leveraging the cloud to create new products and services, reach new customers, and gain entry into a new industry or market. </p> <blockquote> <p>But as organizations are racing to the cloud, data must also keep pace to support a solid and secure digital foundation on which to build their business. </p> </blockquote> <p>With more than 7,000 franchises open in over 40 countries and territories, Choice Hotels was looking to shift more and more workloads to the <a href="https://www.delphix.com/press-release/delphix-amazon-relational-database-service">cloud</a> to bring greater efficiency and agility to the business. Unfortunately, governing and managing data for the software development lifecycle posed an issue to fully adopting cloud. However with a <a href="https://www.delphix.com/vision/dataops">DataOps platform</a>, they were able to automate data environments in the cloud to fuel mission-critical digital transformation initiatives.</p> <p>Achieving the benefits of cloud migration is much easier with DataOps because this methodology aligns the people, process, and technology to enable the secure distribution and management of data. So, migrating applications to a public cloud doesn’t have to take a herculean effort and come at the cost of data privacy. </p> <p>Specifically, a <a href="https://www.delphix.com/vision/dataops-for-appdev">DataOps platform like Delphix</a> can boost application development by bringing:</p> <ul><li><b>Data agility and portability at massive scale</b>. Bringing customer data source from various data sources can be a challenge. With DataOps, data teams can keep their data distribution model as flexible as their infrastructure and have the ability to deliver data from any data source to enable rapid development and delivery of applications as well as derive insights that drive better business decisions. </li> <li><b>Rapid data access in expanded cloud architecture</b>. Enterprises can centrally manage and govern the distribution of non-production data across clouds.</li> <li><b>Data governance for regulatory compliance and data privacy</b>. Its integrated masking capabilities can automatically identify and replace sensitive data to ensure only secure data is sent to test environments in the cloud.</li> <li><b>Modernization of application development in the cloud</b>. While most companies start with a lift and shift to migrate their apps to the cloud, a DataOps platform has the ability to deliver data to test environments in minutes and remove bottlenecks from DevOps workflows, enabling enterprise teams to continuously iterate on application functionality and leverage new cloud services for ongoing improvements. </li> </ul><p>By migrating application development and testing to the cloud, enterprises can increase innovation speed that closely aligns with customer needs. DataOps removes data as a barrier when developing outstanding online and mobile experiences that can strengthen relationships with customers and propel the enterprise to a market-leading position. </p> <p>In a world where every company is becoming a <a href="https://www.delphix.com/vision/datacompany">data company</a>, the faster an enterprise can develop innovative applications and microservices, the quicker they can out-innovate the competition. </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Tags</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tags/dataops" hreflang="en">DataOps</a></div> </div> </div> Tue, 14 Jan 2020 00:36:39 +0000 michelle 2118 at https://www.delphix.com Delphix & NIKEiD Custom Kicks Event https://www.delphix.com/event/delphix-nikeid-custom-kicks-florida <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Delphix &amp; NIKEiD Custom Kicks Event</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/u/vivianjohnson" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">vivianjohnson</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 10/21/2019 - 13:48</span> <div class="field field--name-field-component field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div class="hero-banner hero-banner--height-small text--white" id="paragraph-8195"> <div class="hero-banner__image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/1400x522/public/2019-10/landingpage%20background%20florida.jpg?itok=2UEKUW5f 1x" media="screen and (min-width: 64em)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/1125x522/public/2019-10/landingpage%20background%20florida.jpg?itok=jnyvV53i" alt="Thumbnail" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> </div> <div class="hero-banner__content"> <div class="hero-banner__inner"> <div class="container"> <div class="hero-banner__group text--left"> <h5 class="hero-banner__label narrow-container">Event</h5> <h1 class="hero-banner__title narrow-container show-id"><span class="hero-banner__title__inner "> Delphix & NIKEiD Custom Kicks Event </span></h1> <div class="hero-banner__description ">January 9, 2020 | 5:30-8:00 PM<br /> Cooper&#039;s Hawk Winery &amp; Restaurants</div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Come celebrate the “New Year” with Delphix.

I run Delphix’s webinars, syndication and email marketing programs, as well as collaborate on the digital strategy for advertising and paid social campaigns, and sponsored content programs. </p> <p>I joined Delphix in April 2017 when I learned about the company from a former colleague who had just started working there. She was building out the demand center and got me really excited about all the possibilities and opportunities to contribute to the brand and vision for the company. For all you non-marketers, what this really means is that Delphix is and was a place where hard work, dedication, fast failures, and creative thinking are welcome. </p> <p>And this is exactly why I’m still at Delphix. The environment is demanding, yet collaborative. It’s also fast-paced, but there’s always opportunities to learn and try new things. Most of all, I love the people. </p> <h4>You can ask me anything about…? </h4> <p>Audience acquisition for webinars, optimizing budget across various digital channels, and topical nurture strategy versus persona-based nurture strategy.</p> <h4>What’s the coolest project you’ve worked on at Delphix? </h4> <p>The Delphix rebrand and introduction into the DataOps category was one of the most fun projects I’ve ever worked on. It was really more of an adventure than a project. We rebranded and repackaged Delphix into the <a href="https://www.delphix.com/platform">Delphix DataOps Platform</a> and hosted a company wide and customer-facing event with live-streaming and a film crew on-site. The entire marketing team worked tirelessly to introduce new messaging, a new website, new branding guidelines, and more. </p> <h4>What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? </h4> <p>I was at a women in tech conference a few years ago and heard an interesting bit of advice from one of the keynote speakers: <i>Have a Board of Directors for every aspect of your life</i>. Meaning, find individual experts or mentors for your career, personal life, family life, spirituality, and hobbies.. This really stuck with me because it just makes so much sense; it’s so simple. If you’re wanting to get to the next stage in your career,  settle down with that perfect someone, or plan for a large financial undertaking, don’t you want guidance from someone who’s already walked the path you’re about to embark on? </p> <p>To put it simply, take advice from those who have accomplished something you’d like to accomplish. At the same time, be wary of everyone else in your life who means well with their meaningless advice.</p> <p>Lastly, <i>pay it forward</i>. Don’t hesitate to help someone with something you’re already good at or even buy a drink for a stranger at your local coffee spot. You never know what a small gesture or a bit of direction will do for someone. I promise you, it’s no skin off your back. </p> <h4>What song instantly puts you in a good mood? </h4> <p>“Danza Kuduro” by Don Omar. I listen to this song on repeat all the time, especially while running. Totally gets me energized! </p> <h4>What drives you everyday? </h4> <p>Everything I have yet to experience and all the things I haven’t learned about in life yet. I’m definitely someone who can live in my head a bit, so I’m constantly thinking about “the next thing” - what new city or country I’ll explore this year, what new challenges and opportunities will come up at work, who will come in and out of my life, or how life will change in the coming year.

This last year flew by in an instant, and we saw many technology trends (all promising to take businesses to new heights) come and go. But as some fell by the wayside, DataOps has continued to pick up steam as more companies wake up to the reality that every company is a data company today. As 2019 draws to a close, and we gear up for some much-deserved rest — we take a look back at the major moments that pushed the rapidly growing DataOps movement forward. </p> <h4>Gartner Positions DataOps on the Rise in 2019 (Again) </h4> <p>Last year, leading analyst firm Gartner put DataOps on the map by including the practice for the first time on the hotly-anticipated Gartner Hype Cycle Reports for Data Management. In 2019, DataOps made the rounds again on three separate Gartner Hype Cycle Reports — proving that the industry continues to coalesce around the practice and that it’s no flash in the pan. </p> <p>Gartner already reports that the number of searches for DataOps on their website <a href="https://sdtimes.com/softwaredev/software-predictions-for-2020-from-around-the-industry/">has more than tripled this yea</a>r since first recognizing it last year. The continued investment, interest and excitement from both practitioners and trend-followers like Gartner proves that DataOps is rapidly becoming an industry-defining force much like DevOps a decade ago. <i>Learn more about </i><a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/forbes-dataops-accelerates-innovation"><i>DataOps in the Gartner Hype Cycle here</i></a>. </p> <h4>Surge of New DataOps Champions and Evangelists </h4> <p>Yes, analysts are talking about the potential of DataOps, but the real movement is the grassroots, the everyday practitioners that both use and evangelize the practice to their fellow enterprise teams across the world. In 2019, we saw more and more enterprise software companies do that — such as StreamSets, who hosted its first DataOps summit this year. </p> <p>Delphix customers <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/belkin-charges-up-innovation">Belkin</a> and <a href="https://www.delphix.com/case-study/selecthealth-dataops-innovative-solutions">SelectHealth</a> shared how they’ve turned to DataOps to bring innovation and stay ahead of the competition. Delphix customers make up one-third of companies in the Fortune 50, many of which are category leaders across industries from retail to finance and healthcare. Using DataOps, they deliver data up to 100 times faster than traditional methods, and sport 75 percent shorter development cycle times as a result. </p> <p>But it’s not just companies. Gene Kim’s newest book “<a href="https://www.datakitchen.io/unicorn-project-excerpt.html">The Unicorn Project</a>” includes an excerpt on DataOps, demonstrating how it’s gaining traction as part of the new wave DevOps movement. And this year Christina Cardoza, news editor for Software Development Times, wrote: “Data is now becoming a roadblock to Agile and DevOps initiatives. As a result, development teams are starting to turn to DataOps to help speed up that data layer.” <i>Read on about </i><a href="https://sdtimes.com/data/dataops-is-more-than-just-devops-for-data/"><i>DataOps in the press here</i></a><i>. </i></p> <h4>Launch of the World’s First DataOps Community </h4> <p>As DataOps adoption skyrocketed in the past year, we embarked on a mission earlier this year to create a destination that moves beyond a support forum and becomes a one-stop-shop for knowledge sharing, problem-solving, exclusive events, and other information vital for building world-class DataOps practices and teams. <i>Check out the </i><a href="https://community.delphix.com/home"><i>Delphix DataOps Community here</i></a><i>. </i></p> <h4>Opening of the Industry’s First DataOps Marketplace</h4> <p>In our latest product launch, we announced the new <a href="https://www.delphix.com/dataops-marketplace">DataOps Marketplace</a>, a first-of-its-kind destination for data teams to bring rapid and secure data delivery from any and all data source across a broad array of development workflows and toolchains.

Humans have developed a wonderful ability to deal with problems so quickly and intuitively that we almost don’t even realize a problem exists. When things do get difficult, workarounds are in our nature. </p> <p>On a small scale, this works just fine because some problems happen so infrequently or have limited impact. But having this mindset can be counterproductive to <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/automated-data-discovery">automation</a>, where even simple tasks are repeated dozens, hundreds, and thousands of times over the course of a month, a week, or even a single day. Workarounds do not scale. We must be more diligent when identifying problems and not accept workarounds as solutions. </p> <p>At one point in my career, I spent roughly 50 percent of my time pushing my code out to a server and thought I was doing great, until <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/missing-piece-CICD-automating-data-flow">CI/CD</a> came along. I began to realize I had done it all wrong. </p> <blockquote> <p>CI/CD relies on an automated and reliable suite of tests, and automating a workaround does not scale nor does it help teams be more productive when shipping software with quality built in. </p> </blockquote> <p>It’s only when you codify a process, such as migrating your schema or infrastructure deployments, that you realize the problems were inherent with your manual process and it becomes glaringly evident. </p> <h4>Seed Data and Mock Data Don’t Come Close to Reality</h4> <p>Similarly, data is still a very manual process. There are different types of data needed during application development, depending on where the code is in the pipeline. Early in the development process, when developers are writing code, they want to be able to test their code independently from the database.So they write mock data for their unit tests, and this mock data covers a very specific scenario for testing code. </p> <p>As the application code moves closer to a production release, each phase of the CI/CD pipeline has some specific set of data required to test and validate the application for that phase. <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/confessions-developer">Developers</a> have been addressing this problem with a variety of different data types, including seed data and mock data. These different types of data help validate an application before it ever sees a production release, but they create a number of limitations. </p> <p><b>1. Seed data </b></p> <p>The idea of using seed data for <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/confessions-tester">testing</a> adds complexity to deployments. While seed data allows developers to create sets of data needed to run the application, it’s also required in production for the application to work appropriately. A common example of seed data in practice is having a database table with state names and abbreviations for different countries. So, when customers are filling out online forms with their home address, they have a drop down of states to choose from rather than trying to validate free form text against valid state abbreviations. </p> <p>In a testing scenario, seed data is commonly used to create a set of data for testing and validating the application before it gets to prod. Now, there are multiple sets of seed data that serve different purposes. The complexity of managing these multiple sets of seed data falls on the automation team to understand the differences and observe changes. </p> <p>2. <b>Mock data</b></p> <p>Mock data, on the other hand, is never intended to be released to production and is generally handwritten by developers to test their code. I’ve written a tremendous amount of mocks over the years, and I couldn’t tell you how many mock customers lived at “123 Main Street” in my hometown with my zipcode. Why? Because I have to write mocks over and over again, and I don’t like doing it. I write the fastest mock I can to satisfy the test and move onto writing more code. </p> <blockquote> <p>Mock data is very simple, but it does not represent the variety of data that actual customers generate. </p> </blockquote> <p>Nonetheless, it was very difficult to create reports and geolocation features for the apps I worked on when everyone lived in the same town and had the same address. </p> <h4>Providing Speed, Automation, and Security at the Data Layer</h4> <p>Taking prod data and making it available to lower <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/securing-enterprise-data-for-applications-in-nonprod">non-prod environments</a> is very cumbersome. Because prod data contains sensitive customer data that should not be shared in lower environments, it must be scrubbed, altered, and secured before sharing into lower environments. In non-production environments, security challenges are magnified as the number of data instances and internal users grow. Companies that adopt <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/activating-masked-data-superpowers">data masking</a> techniques as part of a <a href="https://www.delphix.com/vision/dataops">DataOps approach</a> can obfuscate values that are anonymized but still retain referential integrity to perform meaningful software testing and derive smarter insights. </p> <blockquote> <p>How do we bridge the gap between how we manage our code and how we manage our data during application development? The first step is to recognize that data has state, just as application code has state. </p> </blockquote> <p>The data used to triage a bug is different from the data used to unit test code. Validating schema changes against handwritten seed data doesn’t accurately represent what will happen in prod. </p> <p>Each phase of the CI/CD pipeline has a different requirement for data, some tests run in isolation against one dataset, while others require integration with several different services all of which need to be in the same state as the application being tested to be valid. If a problem with the code is found during continuous integration, consider the data shared with the development team to help them fix the issue. Just as release artifacts are moved to production, a consistent data state should move through the pipeline to ensure that each validation step is predictable and repeatable. </p> <p>With <a href="https://www.delphix.com/blog/self-service-speeding-up-software-development">self-service data controls</a>, developers can access data at any point in time for the environment they need, without putting in requests to database administrators. For organizations to speed up software development, data processes have to be quick, painless, and most importantly secure. The bottom line? The more accurate the data and the earlier it is available in CI/CD, the sooner data-related defects can be found. </p> <h4>Manage the Complexity of Data with DataOps</h4> <p>During application development, developers need to have accurate and portable data sets, so they can focus on writing accurate high-quality code instead of writing mocks. The same datasets should be portable and available to different pipeline phases, so tests run quickly and accurately.</p> <p>In short, quality is dependent on testing with production-like data. Dev teams should be able to manage the cadence in which their datasets are updated and be able to receive updates without manual intervention through self-service controls. Reducing the friction between developers and those who manage and secure data is what DataOps is focused on.  </p> <p>A <a href="https://www.delphix.com/vision/dataops-for-appdev">DataOps platform</a> addresses both aspects of the data challenge: speed and security. It delivers data from production to downstream environments and maintains the integrity of the datasets. Automation with APIs enables fast updates and eliminates manual scripts. </p> <blockquote> <p>Developers will achieve true agility in their application workflows only when data is managed like code. </p> </blockquote> <p>The most well-intentioned development projects can create a modern digital tragedy if shortcuts are taken when delivering data to developers or if data security practices are not carried out properly. </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Thu, 19 Dec 2019 16:54:04 +0000 michelle 2113 at https://www.delphix.com Data In The Era Of Disruption https://www.delphix.com/blog/forbes-data-in-era-of-disruption <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Data In The Era Of Disruption</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/u/michelle" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">michelle</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 12/18/2019 - 13:28</span> <div class="field field--name-field-teaser field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">Today, ignoring digital disruption is not an option.

Buzzword or not, the reality -- move fast or die -- is something companies are wrestling with every day. Businesses must innovate through new experiences, business models and services that drive value for today’s consumers. After all, 15 years ago, would you have thought that a social media giant would be working to “<a href="https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/20/18693521/facebook-libra-cryptocurrency-calibra-explainer-how-does-work-features">transform the global economy</a>” by championing a new digital currency?</p> <h4>Threats Are Coming From All Sides</h4> <p>It’s been cited that, since 2000, <a href="https://hbr.org/sponsored/2017/07/digital-transformation-is-racing-ahead-and-no-industry-is-immune-2">half of Fortune 500 companies</a> have gone out of business. Twenty years ago, Apple was a computer company. Amazon sold books. They didn’t survive because they got better at selling computers and books, but because they relentlessly reinvented themselves to become media companies, cloud providers, grocery stores and more.</p> <p>Prior to the digital era, we used to say, "The big eat the small," where larger companies would snap up smaller companies to add to their portfolio. Today, it’s "The fast beat the slow." Whoever can move and innovate more quickly builds sustainable advantages in these new industries. Speed, not size, determines the winners.</p> <p>You may not realize it, but <a href="https://time.com/4480303/supermarkets-history/">Piggly Wiggly</a> was an innovator that forever changed the world of grocery shopping. In an era when customers had to present their orders to a clerk, Piggly Wiggly changed the game by pioneering a self-service model and introducing the notion of check-out clerks, shopping baskets, price tags and refrigerated cases, ultimately refashioning the way people shopped.</p> <p>For all the work the Safeways and Krogers of the world do to optimize their shopper experience, at the end of the day, their job is to put food in the homes of their customers. What happens when those customers stop coming to the store to fulfill that need, instead of turning to Instacart, HelloFresh and UberEats? Big grocers are forced to disrupt themselves to rethink how consumers want to get food.</p> <h4>Data is the Key</h4> <p>In today’s digital era, software has eaten the world. Whether you’re building a new mobile app or web service or making changes to the supply and distribution chains, innovation is delivered through software. But companies are finding that data is an increasingly critical part of these new digital experiences. To stay current in today’s world of software, businesses must master the ability to get relevant data to the people who need it, quickly and securely.</p> <p>Automation has long been critical to helping organizations move faster at a lower cost. Many of the world’s leading companies have been successful in embracing the cloud, deploying continuous integration and delivery tool chains and adopting new DevOps models that tighten the feedback between development and operations. Teams can spin up and tear down servers in minutes instead of weeks or months. This leads to wholesale reinvention of their software development life cycle, which enables them to deliver innovation orders of magnitude faster than before.</p> <p>But many enterprise data teams struggle to provision a new data environment in less than a day. According to a <a href="https://www.delphix.com/sites/default/files/2019-02/10564_Advisory_BW_Delphix.pdf">report</a> by 451 Research and commissioned by Delphix, 47% of global enterprises say it takes four to five days to provision a new data environment. When your infrastructure and your systems development life cycle (SDLC) tooling is fast, the data gap becomes painfully visible.</p> <p>Imagine you’re trying to do continuous testing, your server is ready to go and you’re getting ready to fire some tests. Then, you stop and realize you need fresh data. At that point, you’ll likely have to put in an IT request to database administrators and storage admins for data, and suddenly, five days have passed since you put the project in motion.</p> <p>If you’re doing weekly sprints and it takes two weeks to provision data, are you really doing a weekly sprint? It’s not CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous delivery) if there’s suddenly a five-day delay in the middle of your workflow. Maybe you try to work around it by turning to synthetic data, but the less realistic your data, the lower the quality of your testing, and the slower you move as a result. You spend more time debugging data-related defects later in the development cycle instead of shifting that testing left so developers and testers catch those issues while they’re quick and easy to fix.</p> <h4>Getting the Most out of Your Data</h4> <p>Today, ignoring digital disruption is not an option. Any incremental improvement you make will be wiped out by a competitor who creates a new offering or an entirely new market that turns your company into an also-ran. The truth is that you’re only able to innovate in today's market when you can unlock the data you need. In a world where every company is a data company, teams must be able to:</p> <p>• Manage, change and collaborate with data like code.</p> <p>• Make data available in a self-service fashion.</p> <p>• Become data source agnostic to work with any data, anywhere.</p> <p>• Intelligently anonymize data for privacy and compliance.</p> <p>This is exactly the function of DataOps, a new discipline that aims to do for data what DevOps did for software development and deployment. A successful DataOps practice is one that addresses the full breadth of data-driven initiatives in the modern enterprise, requiring a robust toolbox of capabilities across data security, self-service data access and control, speedy data delivery and the ability to work in a complex IT environment.</p> <p>Enterprises that master DataOps will be able to unlock new insights, bring new digital services to market faster and build better customer experiences so they can avoid being disrupted and win in today's market.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Tags</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tags/dataops" hreflang="en">DataOps</a></div> </div> </div> Wed, 18 Dec 2019 21:28:41 +0000 michelle 2112 at https://www.delphix.com Delphix for Telecommunications https://www.delphix.com/solution-brief/delphix-telecommunications <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Delphix for Telecommunications</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/u/tatyana" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">tatyana</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 04/22/2019 - 12:49</span> <div class="field field--name-field-component field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field__item"> <div class="hero-banner hero-banner--height-small text--white" id="paragraph-6591"> <div class="hero-banner__image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/1400x522/public/2018-09/oracle-banner-hero.png?itok=lAlCgcjb 1x" media="screen and (min-width: 64em)" type="image/png"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/1125x522/public/2018-09/oracle-banner-hero.png?itok=VkPgJVbG" alt="Thumbnail" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </picture> </div> <div class="hero-banner__content"> <div class="hero-banner__inner"> <div class="container"> <div class="hero-banner__group text--left"> <h5 class="hero-banner__label narrow-container">Solution Brief</h5> <h1 class="hero-banner__title show-id"><span class="hero-banner__title__inner "> Delphix for Telecommunications </span></h1> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The telecom industry has a unique opportunity to drive innovation that touches millions of people globally.
