We really do believe a dataops platform seriously changes the game. Data consumers are being asked by the business to go faster and innovate faster. Data operators are being asked to secure the data and make sure that it can scale and that nothing is lost and that it’s all backed up. They’re all doing the right thing, and yet there’s this incredible amount of friction in large part because it’s a reactive model. It’s always about the consumers asking the operators to provision a new data source or to back up to the last refresh to the last snapshot of production from two months ago.
That whole reactive model we think can be switched on its head to where now the operators can set up a wide range of governance policies for where the data is stored, how it’s accessible, what data can be shared and to whom. Now with a DataOps platform, operators, like SREs with DevOps, have a platform in which the data consumers can now have self-service access to data and can operate at a much, much faster rate.
