DataOps: Eliminating Data Friction in DevOps
The DevOps movement has led to the adoption of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) in the application delivery pipeline. The end goal of establishing a CI/CD pipeline is to achieve a continuous "flow" of releases as new features get built, integrated, tested, and deployed to production-like environments, and eventually to production. This flow depends on the continuous integration and delivery of small batches of code for database and environment changes. Data friction results from the inability to have the right data provisioned to the right environment when it is needed, causing the flow to be slowed or interrupted. The tools and practices to manage and secure data need to be brought into alignment with the rest of the capabilities in the CI/CD pipeline by giving practitioners the ability to manage data like code. Sanjeev Sharma will introduce tested and proven collaborative data management methods and practices, referred to as DataOps, to address data friction in the CI/CD pipeline. Learn how to bring data to practitioners in an agile manner so you can achieve continuous flow.
