Illustrated with a visual map & icons
The dataops manifesto is a list of principles (18) with the ultimate goal to “reduce analytics cycle time while improving quality”.
Dataops is not just devops for data. It is a “combination of tools and methods inspired by Agile, Devops and Lean Manufacturing.
Let’s illustrate these 18 principles with a visual map and icons.
And I share with you my top 3 favorite principles :
- Value Oriented : it is hard but Analytics is undermined by not enough focus on that part. A dashboard has never saved a company. Changing the way you are taking decisions and following the KPI do.
- Analytics is code : I know we are in this no code trend but there is no other way to be efficient without coding. ETL softwares belong to the past.
- Quality is paramount : we are not managing servers and BI applications, we are managing the data quality.
When you see these 18 principles on this map, this is quiet a challenge to structure a Dataops team. You will need a very large mix of skills and you will have a lot of confrontations.
As we say in my company “Teams are the new heros” and “Cooperation is the new confrontation”.
